Chocolate Dipped Football Pretzel Bites {Football Friday}

Friday, April 19, 2013

Saturday is A-Day for both Auburn and Alabama. I am really excited to see our football friends and get a taste of college football for a day! No football gathering is complete without food.  I made a batch of these super cute chocolate covered peanut butter pretzel football bites - that's a mouthful - for the party tomorrow.  

These are simple to make and SO much fun to eat.  I dipped the pretzels in chocolate almond bark and let them dry. Next, I used a squeeze bottle to pipe the laces on the pretzels.  I think they turned out so cute and they tasted great.  Chicken Legs and I both agreed the pretzels are a little dry without the chocolate coating.  {Queue up Kramer "These pretzels are making me thirsty."}

The main event in Auburn on Saturday is "The Last Roll". We are rolling the Auburn Oaks at Toomer's Corner one last time. Growing up in Auburn, rolling Toomer's has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.  It will be bittersweet to roll the original oaks on Saturday, but I look forward to the future oaks and keeping the tradition alive. War Damn Eagle!
