MICROWAVE morsels and peanut butter in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted.

DIP about 3/4 of one pretzel in butterscotch mixture; shake off excess. Place on wire rack; sprinkle lightly with sesame seeds. Repeat with remaining pretzels. (If mixture thickens, microwave on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power at 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring until smooth).

REFRIGERATE for 20 minutes or until set. Store in airtight containers or resealable plastic bags.

Pretzel snacks

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

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!

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.

These are so good! These will make excellent additions to my cookie trays this Christmas!


Double Good!

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!
