Believe it or not, we’ve done it again. We’ve taken pickles to a new height. Whether you love or hate our pickle innovation, you gotta respect the hustle. We’ve done about everything we can think of to do with the lil guys, but we realized there was one territory we had yet to explore. Dessert. This is our story.
When I first heard about this bizarre combination of pickles and chocolate, I let out a totally involuntary groan. There is absolutely no way these two ingredients could go together! It sounded like a freaky Fear Factor-style dessert some demented state-fair booth dreamt up in a nightmare.
The more I thought about it though, the more it started to make sense. Salt and chocolate do go well together, I mean what tops a good salted caramel chocolate?
I let my curiosity get the best of me and had to give chocolate dipped pickles a try. Sue me! (Please don’t.) The results, well, let’s just say they were mixed…
The good news: no one was totally disgusted by them. In fact most people liked them! The combination of salty and sweet did work, though some people were turned off by the pickle’s texture.
And here is the recipe itself:
– In a large bowl, toss pickle chips with sugar until fully coated. Move to macerate in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
– Remove from refrigerator and pat dry with paper towels.
– Mix coconut oil into melted chocolate until fully incorporated. Dunk the pickles halfway in the chocolate, then place back on baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt.
– Place in the refrigerator to harden for 10 more minutes. Serve.
