Ratings & Reviews

    Very easy to make and enjoyed by all. I used a basting brush to coat with chocolate. Then I held the pretzel over a paper plate and poured the chopped morsels/peanuts onto the pretzels. I then put the pretzels onto a parchment lined pan and put it into the freezer, keeping the pretzels frozen until eaten.
