There are two kinds of people in the world: people who want everything covered in chocolate and…everyone else. Reductionist? Yes. Wrong? Not really.
Obviously, we fall into the first category. Which is why we’ve dunked everything in chocolate, from cookies to candies to nuts. While these treats are delicious pre-chocolate coating, they’re even better after a chocolate swim. There’s more crunch, more richness, more decadence, more delight.
It’s not surprising that this is one of our all-time bestselling gifts. As our web developer Brent says, "Everything in this box is covered in chocolate: pretzels, hazelnuts, animal crackers, peanut butter cookies. What more could you ask for?" Exactly.
Here are five of our favorite chocolate-covered sweets.
Milk Chocolate-Covered Animal Crackers
Yes, these are called “animals.” No, no one’s sure what shapes they actually are. But we don’t discriminate. Crunchy, bite-sized and covered in a super thick layer of milk chocolate, these are the best version of chocolate-covered animals crackers…or whatever you think they look like.
Milk Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies
Crunchy cookies, salty peanut butter filling, rich milk chocolate coating – these are cookies that would make a Girl Scout blush. Even better: they’re available all year round.
Dark Chocolate-Covered Roasted Hazelnuts
In an ideal chocolate-covered nut, the chocolate : nut ratio isn’t overwhelming – we still want to be able to taste the nuts, after all. We made these with the ratio we prefer most, with a little bit of chocolate with a whole lot of hazelnut. Thanks to the dark chocolate, they're not too sweet (even though they’re rolled in powdered sugar).
Dark Chocolate- and Yogurt-Covered Pretzels
These black and white chocolate pretzels are like your favorite childhood snack, but better, because now you’re an adult and can eat as many as you want. Whether you like chocolate-covered or yogurt-covered (or both in one bite), we’ve, ahem, got you covered.
Dark Chocolate-Covered Raisins and Mini Peanut Butter Cups
This is our version of a deconstructed peanut butter and jelly, but in candy form. Juicy raisins are cloaked in dark chocolate and mini peanut butter cups are covered in milk chocolate. Both treats are the best version of these sweets we’ve ever had; eat them together for the full PB+J experience.
