Pretzel Horseshoes Recipe

Pretzel Horseshoes Recipe

This deluxe pretzel treat has a horseshoe shape...It's visual and different. Everyone seems to love the sweet-salty mixture! —Emily Baldwin Fort Collins, Colorado
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:28 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (10 ounces) large marshmallows
  • 3 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 5 cups crushed pretzels
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips

Directions

  • 1. Place two 5-in.-diameter bowls upside down in the center of two 9-in. round pans; coat bowls and pans with cooking spray.
  • 2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt marshmallows and butter on high for 1 minute. Stir in pretzels. Quickly add chips; stir gently until coated. Divide mixture in half. Press one portion evenly into one prepared pan. Shape into a horseshoe by forming mixture around bowl, leaving a 4-in. opening at one end. Repeat with remaining mixture. Cool for 15 minutes.
  • 3. Remove bowls. Run a knife around edges of pans to loosen. Invert each onto a serving platter. Reshape horseshoes by gently spreading sides apart to elongate if necessary. Cool completely. Yield: 2 horseshoes (14 servings each).
