On this wintry Friday, you may need a pick-me-up. Something a little sweet, a little salty, chocolatey, and covered in goodies. I know. Don’t you feel better already? When I received this gorgeous box from Bianca at Sweet N Salty by Design I almost squealed with delight. Pretty and pink, and smothered in little candies and crunchies and sweet drizzle! I have a sugar high just thinking about it again. Bianca shared that from an early age, she was surrounded by creative women who taught her that you eat with your eyes first. Their wisdom clearly rubbed off on her because her confections are almost too pretty to eat. Almost. Because you should eat them. Really. They are so good.
The dark wheat home-style pretzels are hand decorated with a dazzling array of candy, nuts, sprinkles, and colorful drizzle. It’s as if Bianca took a sugar-happy BeDazzler to them.
