We’ve got a new twist for pretzels! If you’re household is anything like ours, you have open bags of pretzels that have just a little bit left, but have been sitting in your pantry. Here are 3 great ways to use them up and put them to a tasty use!
(1.) For a crunchy coating for chicken, brush each side of 4 boneless chicken breasts with 1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard. Roll in finely crushed pretzels; bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes or until temperature reaches 160 degrees.*
(2.) Swap your favorite cookie crust recipe for this delicious pretzel version: Mix together 2 cups finely crushed pretzels, 6 Tablespoons melted butter and 3 Tablespoons sugar. Press into a pie plate and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.*
(3.) Make a simple & sweet dessert by melting 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips, then stirring in 1 cup coarsely crushed pretzels and 1/2 cup chopped nuts (and/or coconut). Spread out onto a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Break into pieces. *
