Did you know that April 26th is National Pretzel Day? Yuh-huh. It sure is. If you’re anything like me, you don’t really NEED an excuse to snack but having one doesn’t hurt. When we changed our eating habits a few years ago, we tried to find snacks that suited our taste buds without killing our caloric pocketbook. Pretzels were one of those solutions. We almost always have them around because Miss K is a fanatic about pretzels. Rold Gold Cheddar Tiny Twists are her snack of choice – both at home and at school. When we run out, she reminds us we need to restock.

Of course, pretzels are great for more than just snacking. They also add texture and flavor to a variety of recipes. As you can see from the video, Frito-Lay Executive Chef Jody Denton shares some ways that he likes to enjoy pretzels. While a few sound pretty awesome, I’m most intrigued by chocolate-dipped pretzel ice cream sandwiches. Uhhh. YUM! Most of Chef Denton’s Rold Gold recipes utilize whole pretzels. I’ve rounded up (like with the avocado recipes) a handful of fun and delicious recipes from some of my colleagues… many who see the value in crushing them up!

  1. Thanks for the round up. I’m not really a pretzel fan but these snacks looks like they would be good. I know my daughters would love them!

  2. National pretzel day huh? There’s a day for everything! And who doesn’t love pretzels. Salted Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies look like I could die and go to heaven, definitely need to try those!

    PS, I love roundups! Great article

  3. I sometimes have to laugh at the things that they have a special celebratory day for….pretzel being one of them. It is silly but fun and definitely draws you in to participate. I recently celebrated national left hand day……my son and bf are left handed 🙂

  4. YUM!! Going to save these recipes to try. I so wish I could learn to make the pretzels like they have at the fair, the big, warm, soft ones! Up here in the mountains at high altitude, they never come out right. 🙁

  5. Pretzels are my favorite snack. I like them with peanut butter in between and then dipped in dark chocolate! YUM!
