Guess what? Today is National Pretzel Day. But how to celebrate?

On the one hand the answer is painfully obvious—eat pretzels. But what kind of pretzels? After all, there are so many options: hard or soft, knotted or in stick form? Smothered in mustard or covered in chocolate?

Well, here's a suggestion for those who like plenty of sweet with their salty: chocolate-filled pretzel nuggets. These pillow-like nuggets are sort of like Combos meet chocolate-covered pretzel—that is to say, the pinnacle of sweet and salty pretzel perfection.

Note: This recipe can easily be used to make full-sized soft chocolate pretzels as well. Simply cut the dough into longer pieces, line the chocolate filling inside, and roll as you would a normal pretzel. Here's a picture to suggest scale:
