I meant to blog this before Christmas, as well as anise cookies, but I was probably too busy eating them to bother getting near the computer. My mom made these for the first time last year and they are so ridiculously good – both hot and cold. They are also fun and easy to make. All you need is…
Bag of small pretzels
Mini Reese’s cups
Some type of nut – I used mixed unsalted nuts including peanuts, cashews, pecans, etc, but if you have a favorite you can definitely use that.
Preheat the oven around 325/350. Cover a rimmed cookie sheet with tin foil. Lay out your pretzels so they cover the sheet. Place a Reese’s cup on top of each pretzel. Place in the oven until the Reese’s cups begin to melt. Take out of oven and immediately put a nut on top of each while they are still hot and gooey. They might not be the prettiest things to look at, but chocolate, peanut butter, and the salty pretzel plus the nut, yum. Kids will like making and eating this one too. I’ve heard Rolos work well too.
