After every lunch and dinner, I find myself with a sweet tooth and want just a bite of something chocolate to satisfy that craving.

This pretzel bark is my perfect dessert: easy to make, keeps for weeks in the freezer (not that it will last that long!), and full of salty sweet flavor.

With Valentine’s day tomorrow, my mind is on all things chocolate.

Robbie and I don’t really do much for Valentine’s, but he always makes a point to buy me some sort of chocolate.

This year I am requesting another batch of the sea salt pretzel bark, because nothing store bought can even come close to how good this is!

Ever since discovering sea salt flakes I have been using them in desserts whenever I get the chance.

The flakes of salt contrast with the sweetness of the chocolate and it is a flavor explosion.

My favorite bites are the ones with the most salt!

For this recipe, I used Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract.

Nielsen-Massey is known for their vanilla extracts, and the first time I tasted a recipe using one, I knew why!

Nielsen-Massey uses a cold extraction process instead of heat extraction to preserve all of the flavor compounds present in vanilla beans, which gives their products a richer flavor when compared to other vanilla extracts.

Their Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract has a sweet, creamy flavor and is a great all purpose vanilla for any recipe, sweet or savory.

They’re also family owned (which I love!), and all of their products are all-natural, GMO-free, certified gluten-free, certified Kosher, and allergen-free.

How amazing is that?!

I loved the flavor that the Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract added to this bark.

After melting the chocolate and coconut oil, just remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.

Inside the bark you will also add chopped up pretzels (I used gluten free) for extra crunch.

That extra crunch makes for great texture!

On top, I placed around 15 – 20 whole pretzels, and a generous sprinkle of flaked sea salt.

Then pop it in the freezer for an hour, or until set.

This pretzel bark is the perfect dessert for any occasion.

Our daughter brought this to our family gathering yesterday so I could have something tasty at dessert time that wouldn't trigger my gluten/dairy allergy. And WOW! Is this delicious! The combination of slightly sweet dark chocolate with crispy, salty pretzels is perfection. She immediately texted me the link to your website so I can make these whenever I want an amazing treat. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I can hardly wait to make them!
