Pretzels and crackers are two snacks that you’ll find in our home at all times.  My whole family enjoys noshing away on crunchy salty snacks.  And then we were introduced to Pretzel Crisps®.  Not quite a pretzel, not quite a cracker – it’s unique!  A pretzely cracker – a crackery pretzel… whatever you call it, well it’s worth celebrating National Pretzel Day with (which happens to be today by the way).

Or wait — if it’s not quite a pretzel… maybe it should have it’s own day?  Well you can place a vote on the Pretzel Crisp Facebook page and vote on whether today should be their day or if they should have their own holiday, National Pretzel Crisps® Day.  Voting ends today at 8pm EST so if you have an opinion on the matter, well you should make it known! 

As part of National Pretzel Day celebration and as a special tahnks to their wonderful, supportive fans, they will be giving away a mystery gift today!  TO find out what it is and calim a gfit for you and a friend, stop by the Pretzel Crisps Facebook page starting at 8am EST today.

20 Original Pretzel Crisps
4 ounces semi-sweet bakers chocolate
20 teaspoons peanut butter
10 teaspoons marshmallow creme

Heat chocolate in microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring until completely melted.  Spread peanut butter on 10 of the Pretzel Crisps.  Spread marshmallow creme on top of the peanut butter.  Put the remaining Pretzel Crisps on top of the marshmallow creme.  Dip each “cookie” into chocolate, coating completely.  Place on a plate lined with wax paper and stick in freezer for 5-10 minutes to allow chocolate to harden.  Makes 10 cookies.
