Since its introduction to the states in the 19th century, pretzels have become a staple! Sure, you can grab 'em by the bag at the grocery store or pick up one at the food court, but what's even better is making a fresh batch at home and turning them into super-deluxe pretzels with your own tasty extras! Try turning two fresh baked pretzels into a giant salty-sweet ice cream sandwiches! Or crumble up crispy ones to add a creative coating to fried chicken. Either way, these recipes are just the twist your routine menu is looking for.
