Want to know how to make just about salty or sweet food better? Dip it in chocolate. Of course, we favor some chocolate covered snacks over all the rest. Some are homemade, like Mom’s chocolate chip cookies that you can never seem to replicate. However, others are made by specific chocolate brands that have that developed a secret formula that you could recognize blindfolded. Below are the all-time favorite chocolate covered treats for kids that they’ll remember well into adulthood!
Chocolate Covered Pretzels
The best thing about chocolate covered pretzels is they vary with different chocolates but are always delicious. You can use dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate, allowing the smooth sweetness to compliment the natural saltiness and crunch associated with your standard pretzel. The saltier the pretzel, usually the better the taste. You may want to seek out chocolate covered pretzels from a gourmet chocolatier before you go for the large manufacturers, as they will have used more care and time in salting their pretzels and making their chocolate before combining the two.
Asher’s Milk Chocolate Covered Sandwich Cookies
While there are major cookie companies that make chocolate sandwich cookies, nothing touches the milk chocolate covered sandwich cookies from Asher’s, which takes their own delicious cream-filled cookies and dunk them in delectable milk chocolate that the Asher’s brand is known for. Asher’s puts so much time and care into each individually wrapped cookie. This allows you to savor each bite, rather than blindly shoved into your mouth as you would with a cheap pack of cookies from the corner store. It’s the perfect size dessert for a kid at lunch or after dinner.
Trader Joe’s Dippers
Trader Joe’s Dippers are oval chocolate chip cookies and partially dipped in milk chocolate. Not only are these delicious, but you can include a couple of these Trader Joe’s dippers in a lunch, or as a quick and easy treat for a kid. They are satisfying to a sweet tooth without sending them on a sugar and caffeine rampage afterward.
Peanut Butter Cups
Cups of peanut butter dipped in chocolate are a treat that is relatively new (1920). However, they have quickly became a classic. They’re easy to make and there are a number of popular brands, so they shouldn’t be hard to find, but if you’re adventurous and want to try a new twist, try out Asher’s white chocolate peanut butter cups. They’re delicate and buttery, which blends beautifully with the smooth peanut butter center.
Of course, these are just a few of kids’ all-time chocolate covered favorites. Visit Asher’s website to discover your own chocolate covered favorites.
