This recipe was inspired by a creation from Beth Royals, a contest cook who enters and wins hundreds of cooking competitions. Not surprisingly, she made it to the finals of the upcoming Bake-Off with one of her clever ideas. For this candy/snack she took a roll of pie dough (the sponsor product) and cut it […]

Until late last year I didn’t give chocolate covered pretzels much thought, but then a switch flipped and all over a sudden I found myself craving the sweet, salty, chocolate combo almost every day.  At some point I graduated to a new level of sweet & salty goodness — the Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Filled […]

Peanut Butter Filled Pretzel Bark

Our oven is still broken, so thank goodness for the $29 toaster oven we bought at Target and this easy recipe. Not that the two are related. I just wanted to give the toaster a shout-out.  Thanks, toaster, for making it so I don’t have to microwave everything this week!   And I guess I should […]

My oven is in the hospital having brain surgery. It was taking too long to preheat and doing other wacky things, so we dissembled its control board and sent it out to be reconfigured. I’m hoping it’s sitting on a testing bench having all of its glorious memories restored today. In the meantime, I’m trying […]

Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffle

For those of you who love Buckeyes, the peanut butter candy that resembles the seed of a buckeye tree, meet their salty cousins! These little gems are called Peanut Butter-Pretzel Bon Bons, and unlike typical Buckeyes which are made with peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar (and sometimes mashed potatoes), these are made with peanut […]

Caramel Filled Pretzels

Here we go again with the pretzels; but instead of filling the loops with peanut butter, I’ve filled them with a special melted caramel mixture that stays soft under the firm chocolate. I’ve been “handcrafting” these for family and friends and have kept the batch sizes small, which in this case means three pretzels. Once […]

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzel Twists

These delicious candy/cookies were inspired by a recent trip to Make it Sweet, a cake decorating shop in North Austin which I finally got to visit. I live south and rarely venture north of the river, but I agreed to take a break from baking last weekend and go to a pinball arcade with …
