Save both time and money with a big batch of this sweet and salty, creamy and crunchy treat. Any dessert that is left over is super the next day, too. —Rita Winterberger, Huson, Montana

"Great summer recipe!"

"We thought it was delicious! The only thing I did was less sugar in the pretzel crust because I don't think it needs to be that sweet. I probably put in a big 1/4 cup."

"I like your recipes, BUT I like to copy and paste them in word, so I can get two recipes on one page- Your ingredients come out in a mess??? Why is that?"

"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."
