Chocolate Chip Cookie Muddy Buddies

I can tell you one thing, I was not not NOT going to use the oven. Or the stove. I was even apprehensive about using the air popper to make popcorn. So, we ate muddy buddies. Hooray!

Soft Pretzels

Within 5 minutes, all but one of those 16 pretzels were gone. Not a crumb remained. It was seriously like those African ants that march through the town and eat everything in sight.

Pretzel Toffee

Toffee is one of my favorite candies. Butter + Sugar… what’s not to love? I wanted to add a little salt to my sweet (salty + sweet is the best flavor combo) so I poured my toffee over pretzels. Pretzels go great with basically everything, if you ask me.

Easter Snack Nests

For some reason, coming up with a good Easter recipe to make has been hurting my brain. I bought these Reese’s Pieces Eggs, which are rather fantastic and hard to resist, and I knew I wanted to use them somehow. Chocolate… peanut butter… pretzels… Easter… AND Reese’s candy! It’s perfect!
