    I am so excited to try this recipe -I have made lots of different pretzel recipes but haven't tried this combination yet!

    A great treat

    Evonne Robertson from FRASER, MI

    These pretzels are easy to make, and make a great treat. We made these for a shower. We put them in baggies and gave them to everyone. They all loved them to take home. We also had them in bowls to snack on before the shower started. Everyone really loved a change from the nuts and candy.

    One of my favorite Holiday Treats!

    Elizabeth Engel from SAINT LOUIS, MO

    These are GREAT! I eat as many as I make! The perfect combination of sweet and salty. They are a bit time consuming, but well worth the time and effort. The sesame seeds add a nice nutty taste and texture to it, but they do add a bit to the expense. This Christmas I make them without the seeds and they were just as yummy! I also used the smaller twists, which don't break as easily as the larger ones. But of course, you have to make MORE of them smaller ones, but I didn't mind at all. Package them up in a decorated chinese carry-out container and they make a great gift idea! These will always be on my holiday cookie tray.

    Double Good!

    Jan Wilkins from BLYTHEVILLE, AR

    I made these when the Grandchildren came this weekend, they are always snacking, BUT I also mixed the pnut butter with choc morsels, and after the butterscotch side set up, I dipped the other side in the chocolate mixture. They were great, I was hoping to have SOME left to bring to work today, WRONG!

    Excellent!!!!!

    Rosie from

    I made these the other day, and they were all gone by the end of the day. I ended up putting the whole pretzel in the mix and covered the whole thing. It was really good that way. I will definitely make these again.

    I like to make these to snack on when I go on business trips & fly to get there. Better than the stuff on the plane & cheaper too.

    great for bake sale

    Tina Dobbs from Shorewood, IL

    I used toffee pieces instead of sesame seeds and they turned out fantastic! They sold out at our bake sale, people came back to buy more after trying them.

    Oh Yum!

    karen boehlert from CLAY, NY

    We had these at a family gathering. Everyone enjoyed the combination of salty and sweet. I also liked how easy they were to put together plus a nice change from our usual chocolate dipped pretzels. :)

    Twist the Recipe a Little

    Valerie Wenner from MIDDLEPORT, NY

    Excellent. My daughter and I made these and had a blast dipping and sprinkling together. A twist on the recipe added some color; in addition to making some sprinkled with sesame seeds, we sprinkled others with nonpareils, snowflakes, and chocolate sprinkles. Kids went for the color variety and adults for the sesame seeds. Thanks for another great recipe!

    Peanut Butterscotch Pretzels

    A. Dunham from Duncan, SC

    We loved this recipe, easy, fast and great to munch on. I did chop some salted peanuts and scattered them on top. We liked both sesame seeds and peanut topping. Great flavors. I also want to try them with chopped chocolate on top!

    A Twisted Treat

    karen colla from boardman, OH

    I usually make chocolate covered pretzels, but my one son is a peanut butter nut. As I was melting the butterscotch and peanut butter the smell brought my son down from his room. He wanted to know what smelled so good. I put chopped cashews on them instead of the sesame seeds. He thought that they were awesome. These will be in with the treats that I give away for Valentines Day. Thank You!!

    A Twisted Treat

    karen colla from boardman, OH

    I made these pretzels last night. I generally make the chocolate covered pretzels but my one son is a peanut butter nut. I was melting the butterscoth and peanut butter and the smell brought him from his upstairs room to the kitchen. What smells so good? he said. Needless to say he tried them. All I heard was these are awesome. These will be a part of the treats that I give as gifts for Valentines Day. I also used crushed cashews instead of the sesame seeds. Thank You!!! I love finding recipes that my family enjoys.

    Easy and Good .Two things I like.

    Janet Kelley from Urbana, IL

    I just got done making some of these, even though I'm on a diet. I just ate one to see how they turned out ( ok, two or so)But they are really good . Quick and easy too . A combination I really like.

  •  Star(s)

    Yummy

    Marjory Betchkal from Sheboygan, WI

    We make chocolate covered pretzels often. This was a variation, only we dipped it into chopped nuts instead of sesame seeds. You can do just about anything to them and they are still good. Thanks.

    I made these for my kids on a snow day, and I couldn't stop eating them! The kids loved them, too!
