Double Whammy Delight

This is a child's dream snack. It corporates two favorite snacks: candies and pretzels. It is so easy to prepare too! It is a definite try...

Nerds Pretzel Bars

These were easy to make! After letting the kids each pick the box of nerds of their choice we dumped them in with the pretzels and 5 minutes later they were waiting for them to cool. I would add 1 cup of peanut butter to the corn syrup and sugar next time. I would also break the pretzel sticks in 1/2, still using 2 cups to start with. It would be fun to add additional candies. This is a great one to do with kids and they love to see the candy they picked all mixed in.
