Dark Chocolate Almond Toffee Pretzel Bites

Daaaang, that's a mouthful of a title...and by mouthful I mean you are literally going to want to stuff your mouth full of these tasty bite size morsels!  Side note: aren't they extra scrumptious, nesting in the cutie vintage bowl that once belonged to my grandma?!? Love!

Create a double boiler by placing a couple inches of water in a
saucepan and topthe pan with a glass or stainless bowl. 
Over medium heat slowly melt the chocolate 
(equal parts Ghiradelli bittersweet and semi-sweet is my winning combo)

Once the chocolate is completely melted, set up an assembly line.
On the counter set up mini pretzels, the bowl of melted 
chocolate on a towel (you might have to pop the bowl back over 
heat for a minute, to loosen it back up) and plates of toffee bits 
and raw almonds.

Line baking sheets with parchment.

Dip the pretzel in the chocolate, shaking off excess.  Then set on the toffee,
place an almond on the chocolate (where it will stay put, once the chocolate sets).

 Use your fingers to toss a bit of toffee on the remaining chocolate 
(toffee will be sticking to the bottom as well...the more the merrier!)

Place dipped and candied pretzels on a parchment
lined baking sheet to set up.  It will only take about
an hour for the chocolate to fully set.  Good luck 
waiting that long!

Place set candies in a dish or better yet package up to share with
friends, teachers, neighbors, etc.  This would be a delicious addition
to a cookie exchange, in my humble opinion.

Enjoy!  So easy!
