What to Serve with Pretzel Bites
These sweet and salty bites are delicious when served alone as a snack or as part of a snack mix. They're a great addition to a larger dessert spread at holiday gatherings or parties, as well.
- Don't overbake these bites. Leave them in the oven just long enough for the Rolos to begin melting.
- Work fast, placing another pretzel on top of the Rolos while they're still hot and melty.
Salt is a flavor enhancer, and when combined with sweet flavors, it creates a layered flavor effect that actually causes a biological response in the brain.
Rolos are conical chocolate candies with a caramel center.
Now one knows exactly when or where chocolate and pretzels were combined, but some historic records indicated that chocolate covered pretzels were invented in Hamburg, Germany in 1544.
