Pretzel Fail

First recipe I have ever pulled off off of that failed.
 :(  It had great reviews, I read the comments, learned a bit and yet?


They looked pretty, but their interior had a biscuit like quality.  We did not like them at all. The dogs did tho'. They had lotsa' snacks last night. :)

Instead, we are making a Skippy Family stand by. It is one of our favorites and with the exception of a bit of white chocolate it is pretty healthy.


White Trash
3 1/2 cups of cheerios
6 cups of Crispix cereal [or a mix of corn and rice Chex]
2 1/2 cups peanuts [we use unsalted]
2 cups of pretzel sticks [broken up]

2 bags of white chocolate chips

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside.
Melt white chocolate in the microwave, stirring occasionally, until pourable. [Or melt in a double boiler on the stove.]
Pour chocolate over dry ingredients. Mix well.
Spread mixture out in a single layer on waxed paper. Let harden.
When hard, break into pieces, gift bag it and enjoy!

ETA:  This was a huge hit on the band bus. Looks as tho' I will now be signing up for the last two trips too. heehee

Now that sounds like something I would like most things taste better if coated in chocolate.....

I made pretzel rolls - when I added the baking soda to the boiling pot of water it exploded everywhere, but they were tasty!

Good thing the dogs liked them! :D Happy Saturday Skippy!

Ooh, this would be so good at a party and could become the theme too!
