Zebra Pretzels

These are a yummy snack, I think. And my 3-year old agrees. Unfortunately, they don't travel well because the chocolate melts, but they are good to keep at home (keep in the freezer).

Ener-G Wylde Pretzels(GFCFSF)
Enjoy Life chocolate chips (GFCFSF; I buy mine on Allergy Grocer)
A little drizzle of coconut milk or other milk sub
Salt (optional; play around with it; salt changes the taste of the chocolate)

Put some chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Add a little bit of milk sub and microwave for just a bit (10 seconds or so). Stir and keep microwaving and/or adding milk sub until you get a good consistency. It needs to be liquid enough to "drizzle" but not so wet that it won't stick to the pretzels. (This is not an exact science, so don't worry!) Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and line some pretzels (as many as you want) on top. Use a spoon in the air to "drizzle" the chocolate onto the pretzels. Put the cookie sheet in the freezer. Once the chocolate is frozen onto the pretzels, break them apart and store in an air-tight container. Keep in the freezer.

We just started a gfcf diet w/ our 18 month old son---these are definitely going to be a hit. I can't wait to make them.

Thanks for sharing. I'm enjoying your blog and am bookmarking it for future ideas for Evan.
