Easy! The hardest part is sharing them! For a nuttier confection, use 1/2 cup of peanuts.

Fantastic! I used peanut butter instead of the butterscotch chips. Tasted like Take Five candy bars. Thanks for the great recipe. Read More

I was a little disappointed in how this recipe turned out. The pretzels turned out tasting really stale (I was expecting them to be crunchy) after mixing in the chocolate mixture. Maybe it was because I used the pretzels sticks instead of regular pretzels or maybe that's the way they are suppose to be. I think I will try this recipe one more time and use the regular pretzels and see if that makes a difference. Read More

I also used pretzel sticks broken into bits and pieces and got that not-so-crunchy texture but when it tastes this good who cares?? I used milk chocolate/peanut butter morsels and fat free sweetened condensed milk. I liked the idea of bits and pieces as opposed to the crushed pretzels (made them look like little chocolate covered bird's nests!)but next time I may try a different shaped pretzel. MUCH easier and quicker than the dipped pretzels I usually do!!! Thanks for the idea! Read More

I didn't like the flavor of these at all. They were really easy to make but something about the flavor was off... not sure what it was but I probably won't try them again:( Read More

These taste really good for about the first 30 minutes then the pretzels get stale and they aren't worth eating. Read More

I also used this recipe to "use up" some sweetened condensed milk from another recipe. I used the regular mini pretzal twists and broke them into smaller pieces (not crushed). I had no butterscotch chips so I used vanilla instead and I did go with the 1/2 cup of peanuts. I certainly agree that this is much easier than the task of dipping pretzals individually. When I make again I will be probably use peanut butter chips and will increase the peanuts even a little more. Thanks for the recipe!! Read More

These are just plain YUMMY! Made it exactly as the directions said except just broke up the pretzels instead of crushing them. They taste like candy and I am wishing I doubled the recipe! Great way to use pretzels. Read More

Delicious!! One thing about the recipe it calls for crushed pretzels. Instead of crushing the pretzels I broke them up into bits and pieces. I also substituted peanut butter chips for the butterscotch. This one's definitely a keeper! Read More
