Sugarpova Premium Chocolates with Ms. Candy Blog

By: Candy Queen

Sugarpova shared their new premium chocolates with me to use in a recipe! There are 4 bars:

Milk Chocolate
Dark Chocolate
Milk Chocolate with Strawberry
Dark Chocolate with Toasted Coconut

Now, I’m not a cook, so I had to come up with a recipe that’s a sweet treat and easy to make: Chocolate Covered Pretzels with a twist! They’re stuffed or coated with different goodies.

I stuffed the pretzels as follows:

Milk Chocolate with Caramel
Dark Chocolate with Peanut Butter
Milk Chocolate with Strawberry & Quirky by Sugarpova
Dark Chocolate with Coconut

For the recipe, I used the following:

Sugarpova Premium Chocolates
Sugarpova Quirky Candy
Shop Rite Coconut
Skippy Peanut Butter
Parchment Wax Paper
Snyder’s Sourdough Pretzels
Werther’s Soft Caramels

A tip: Make sure you have enough pretzels that are in one piece. The box of pretzels I had were pretty much all broken. I went with a Bavarian style pretzel so that I could stuff more in the pretzel loop. In hindsight, maybe thin pretzels would have been better.

The first pretzel I worked on was the Sugarpova Premium Milk Chocolate filled with Werther’s Caramel. I melted the chocolate in a pan and later tried it in a bowl in the microwave; the microwave worked better. I added a little bit of Coconut Oil to the chocolate to make it thinner.

Since the I’d learned the ropes on the first pretzel, the Dark Chocolate pretzel was easier. The coconut was pretty long; if it had been shorter pieces, it would’ve been easier to cover.

With the Milk Chocolate and Strawberry pretzel, I wanted to cover it with strawberries but didn’t think that would work. Then I read that Maria Sharapova’s favorite Sugarpova was Quirky which happens to be strawberry–bingo! I chopped up the Quirky and put it on the pretzels–it came out so cute!

By the time I’d finished the strawberry pretzel, I looked in the pretzel box to find all broken pieces. I even tried to piece the pretzels together to form a pretzel. Had I been successful, I would’ve covered the pretzel in Sugarpova Dark Chocolate and filled the pretzel loops with Skippy Peanut Butter.

I’m so glad I had this opportunity to do a little bit of tinkering in the kitchen, especially with candy as sweet and fun as Sugarpova!

Candy kisses!
