Quicos de Chocolate, aka Sweet-Salty Deliciousness
The easiest and tastiest way to gain a dress size.
Valentine's Day may have ended, but that doesn't mean the chocolate fun is over. While ambling through the Grand Central outpost of Murray's Cheese yesterday, we chanced upon quicos de chocolate, otherwise known as chocolate-covered corn nuts, on sale for $3.99. And boy are these treats way better than any V-Day candy out there.
The giant corn nuts are dipped in dark chocolate and finished in a tossing of cocoa powder. The perfect balance of sweet and salt, these snacks are like chocolate-covered crack. Serve them at a cocktail party and it's guaranteed that they'll be gone in a flash. They probably aren't the greatest for you since corn nuts have, like, a bazillion calories, but this Spanish delight shows that good things come in small packages.
