DivaQ's Chocolate Pig Candy Pretzels

This is as close to a "cookie post" that you will ever see on Nibble Me This.   I made DivaQ's Chocolate Pig Candy Pretzels (click for full recipe).  It's made of pretzels, chocolate and crumbled candied bacon.  Yeah, I know....right? 

Sweet, salty, and a bit smoky too.

Danielle Dimovski aka DivaQ has been one of my top favorite BBQ bloggers since I started my blog.  She's got a hilarious sense of humor, has great content & tips, and is one heck of a BBQ competition cook, as proven by her top finish in pork shoulder at the 2011 Jack Daniels.  If you don't already follow her, check out www.divaq.ca .  
Made my pig candy on my Green Egg. 
Improvised double broiler.
Dipped in chocolate, sprinkled with crumbled pig candy, chilled in fridge, dusted with powdered sugar.


We packaged these in foil cups and red straw inside of a clear plastic goody bag to give as gifts to co-workers, neighbors, etc.

  4. I've considered making pig candy, but I just can't bring myself to put sugar on my favorite meat. These babies are creative and it would be hard to resist bacon together with chocolate - my favorite sweet, so I'm sure I could scarf down a couple.

  6. My mom is such a pretzel fanatic. I think I'd win favorite daughter of the century status if I made these for her!

  14. Hey, I'll consider this recipe my Christmas gift - muchas grass. On another note, thanks for a year of great reads - while I haven't graduated beyond my gas grill, I have learned quite a bit from you and your enviable skills...I've also gained a solid ten pounds that I can attribute directly to your recipes...for which I'll forgive you for, as long as the New Year is filled with even more delectable dishes. Merry Christmas! Nan
