What can be yummier than rich hot chocolate paired with a pretzel croissant at City Bakery? As a chocolate fanatic, I tried many of their specialty cocoa drinks during their Hot Chocolate Festival last year in February. This stuff is super thick, almost like pudding, and tastes like they melted down a bar of fine chocolate and put it in a cup without messing with milk. In short, pure chocolate bliss! Well, if you love chocolate covered pretzels, then you know where I’m going with this…City Bakery’s flaky pretzel croissant is super soft on the inside and buttery with just the right speckling of salt on the outside like a soft pretzel. And if you’re lucky enough to get one that is still warm from the oven, you’re in for a chewy taste bud teaser. Then take a sip of cocoa and just wait for your mouth to reach nirvana! Give it a try and let me know what you think. I think it’s an especially perfect accompaniment to the chilly autumn air.
