This has been a family favorite for years at our Thanksgiving get together. I'm making another triple batch tonight for Thanksgiving tomorrow...trying something a bit different...adding a drained 20 oz. can of chopped mandarin oranges for color and added flavor. And yes, parchment paper in your pan makes it much easier to work with the chopped pretzels.

My family loves this salad. The only difference is I coarse like the pretzels, mix and dump in pan. I don't press it down and stir them in the pan about half way through the baking time. No sticking of the pretzel mixture!

I've made this several times and it's always a hit! In response to those who said the pretzel mix stuck to the pan, try lining your pan with parchment paper. It makes clean up a breeze!

This can be made in the micro the same as the oven other then the pretzel mixture will be stirred in to the fluff. Do everything the same way other then in micro on high for 2 -3 mins.

Very tasty, but like other reviews I also had trouble with the pretzel mixture sticking to the pan.

Made it for a family gathering and it was a big hit. I had trouble though with the pretzel mixture sticking to the pan after I baked it. What did I do wrong?

This reminds me of a recipe my mom used to make. It's a perfect combination of sweet and salty!

I have made this one 20+ times. One of my families favorites! My husband can no longer eat nuts and he said the pretzels remind him of nuts. So fun for the kids to help make too! A great dessert for a hot summer day!
