"Something better than zip-lock bags to crush pretzels, crackers, tortilla chips , etc. ForyearsI have been saving the bags from cereal boxes to crush pretzels, crackers, chips, etc. They are made of nylon and I don't remember every having the sharp edges poke through. You can use a rolling pin and get quick results. This pretzel dessert is a winner."
"The picture shows this dessert in dessert glasses. How would you prepare it to look like that?"
"I have always loved this recipe, however we use Cool Whip"
"We used strawberry pie filling since that was what we had on hand and made it in a trifle bowl...delicious!!! Brought it to a church picnic and every last bit of it was gone! Definitely a keeper!!!"
"@sue311- the easiest way to crush the pretzels is to put them in a zip-lock bag and wack them with a wine bottle. (After a couple glasses of wine, this is kinda fun.) I wasn't sure about the cubed butter, as one other person said- so I got the butter while cold and cut it up in very small bits; by the time it was all mixed up it had softened and mixed in quite well, and the pressing into the pan finished it nicely- no lumps of butter to bite into. This was delicious made as written, and we will be having it often."
