a new twist for pretzels!

Thursday, January 6, 2011

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. *
