"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."
