I have to say, I love a salty treat almost as much as a sweet treat, so obviously I’m a big pretzel fan. Everyone in my house is actually, I think my daughter’s favorite things about Disneyland are Space Mountain and Mickey Mouse Soft Pretzels, and when we visited New York last year, a hot soft pretzel was on the top of her must eat treat list. When you combine salty and sweet and I am in heaven, so I love to work pretzels into as many desserts as I possibly can. Saturday, April 26th is National Pretzel Day, and I think we should all celebrate. I’ve put together a round up of some amazing pretzel recipes that combine salty and sweet for a fabulous flavor combo.
I will start with some of my own recipes that include pretzels. CLICK ON ANY PHOTO TO BE TAKEN TO THE RECIPE POST.
Chocolate Covered Pretzels are one my go to treats. If I can’t think of what to make for an event or get together, I always fall back on chocolate covered pretzels. I make them for almost every holiday. They are easy to make, no bake and taste amazing and they are super easy to transport. Everyone always loves them. I have a ton of them here on Love From The Oven, as well as a video showing how I make mine. My favorite pretzels to use are the Snyder’s of Hanover Old Tyme Pretzels. I find them to be the perfect size to work with, and a nice single serving size treat.
A little detour from the pretzel and chocolate combo. This Margarita Pie With A Pretzel Crust is hands down one of my favorite desserts ever. Not only does it taste amazing, but it’s no bake and easy to make. It’s pretty much perfect. Oh how I love a pretzel crust.
These Caramel & Chocolate Chip Brownies are the first recipe I ever made with a pretzel crust. AMAZING. Make it. Even if you don’t make the brownies. The crust is crazy cakes. I would marry this crust.
This Deep Dark Delicious Chocolate Ice Cream in a pretzel cone is pretty much one of the greatest desserts ever. Pretzel cones rock my world. Seriously, if you have never tried them and you love pretzels, FIND THEM. These are made by The Cone Guys and you can mail order them, some stores throughout the US carry them and many ice cream shops offer them. It is an ice cream game changer in my book.
My Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites were something I whipped up while trying to find something to make with a bag of half melted peanut butter cups. God bless those peanut butter cups for melting, because these were delicious.
Peanut Butter Pretzel Filled Brownies. Salty Sweet Recipe overload, in a very good way.
And Caramel Pretzel Filled Brownies. Can you tell I like my salty sweet recipes in the form of brownies?
