    I found Utz pretzels shaped like bells, stars and trees and have them ready for Christmas gifts. Pretzels and chocolate ... what's not to like!

    These will keep a long time in air tight containers.

    My family loves the sweet salty taste of the pretzels. Can these be made ahead and frozen for Christmas tins?

    I usually make these every year. They are quick and easy and everyone seems to enjoy them. I use white candy coating and nonpariels which look really festive. This is nice for kids to help with, too.
