These sweet little snacks are incredibly easy to make. Hitting them with a dash of sea salt brings out the savoury in the pretzels, making this a nicely rounded off little dessert snack. They're versatile because you can use any type of candy in the middle, changing the whole flavour experience altogether. I used Caramel M&M's here. You can be picky about what colours you use to suit your event or holiday.

My recipe is for chocolate dipped pretzels. I like this recipe because it is great for parties, holidays, candy baskets, and just for fun. The kids like them. I have to be careful when I make them or they will eat them all.
I simply melt white or milk chocolate bricks (found in the baking section of the grocery store) in the microwave for about a minute. Dip the pretzels in the chocolate and put them on waxed paper on a cookie sheet.
I bought one of those large containers of pretzels at BJ's and used 3 bags of candy melts (red, white and green) and made over 300 of these one afternoon. I used the 3 bags of melts but only half of the container of pretzels, which are great eaten by themselves as a low-fat snack. Enjoy!
Small pretzel sticks make great skewers for bite-sized appetizers - nothing to throw away.
These are a favorite of my husband. He will eat them almost as fast as I can make them!
This is a pie crust made out of pretzels, margarine and Splenda. We do not use margarine, but prefer to use butter. That is the only difference I have really made to this old recipe.
Great dessert with what I think is a 'summer' flavor.
Take some pretzel sticks and stick them into the heated chili beans. Stand them upright onto a plate and serve The pretzel stick acts like an edible toothpick.
Place on prepared cookie sheet and freeze at least 30 minutes till frozen solid. Then melt semi sweet chocolate chips as above and dip each pretzel 1/4 the way up the white chocolate dip...
Place pretzels on greased baking sheets in a single layer. Place chocolate kisses in center of each ring. Bake at 275 degrees F. for 2-3 minutes until chocolate is softened.

A few months ago I had some mini pretzel rounds that were sandwiched together with what appeared to be caramel and then covered in icing with sprinkles. They were absolutely delicious. It was a catered event so I couldn't get the recipe.
Does anyone (Robin) have any ideas on how these are made or perhaps you've had something similar and know how to make them. I'd appreciate it. I want to make a batch to give as a gift. Thank you

I would melt the caramels in the microwave until soft, then spread them on the pretzels, and top with another. Then I would just dip them in melted chocolate wafers, set on foil and put sprinkles on; then let them set. You could probably even just put a half of a caramel on one pretzel, then bake them at about 250 until the caramels start to "sag", then pull the tray out and quickly cover with another pretzel.
This sounds like a nice combination!
Sounds good and quite easy, especially putting a caramel on a the pretzel and melting in the oven.
Sounds a bit like the pretzel squares with melted Rollo candies we had around Hallowe'en, addictive!
I have a easy recipe that is good, use a small pretzel twist, put a hershey kiss or hug on it and fill a cookie sheet with them.put in oven until they are soft and then press a red or green M"M on them and let harden and you have a yummy treat. Here are some of the treats I made last Christmas.
The easiest way to make them is to put the small pretzels on a large baking sheet and top each one with a Rollo caramel. Bake at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and squash another pretzel on top of the Rollo so the chocolate and caramel ooze through the top pretzel.
drmeidl, you should place your picture in the Thriftyfun contest. I love the idea of using cookies like Nutty Buddies for Santas. Pretty presentation.
The recipe calls for 2 cups pretzel rods, crushed. I want to use pretzel sticks or other forms of pretzels I have on hand. How do I substitute?
By Jean F
I dont think it should matter as long as you crush them to measure 2 cups worth. Im guessing they just feel it would be easiest to use the rods but 2 cups of crushed pretzels are 2 cups of crushed pretzels regardless of their original shape.
The answer was incorrect, because it says 2 cups pretzel rods when you put Rods in a cup and then crush them they may not equal a cup does she know that
Pretzel salad is a recipe that consists of strawberry jello, a creamy middle and a crust made from crushed pretzels. Although it is called a salad, it's really more of a dessert.
