The reason I made such a big batch of these cheddar pretzel bites isn’t because I needed a huge amount for a family get-together. Sure, I needed some, but not a ton. Nope, I made a big batch because I wanted more for myself. Sorry, but it’s true. I was being selfish, but for a good reason. I love them. Crunchy, a bit buttery, and definitely cheesy. You don’t have to use pretzels to make these cheddar bites. If you prefer, any cracker will do, specially oyster crackers or saltines. Just don’t substitute something that is strongly flavored and might not go well with the cheddar. That would make for a bowl of sadness.
I loved making simple little bites like these pizza pretzel nuggets. They took no time, little ingredients, and came out great. This recipe makes a decent-sized batch of snacks, enough for Anita to take to work and share with her co-workers. Every bite has a wonderful, light pizza flavor. You’ll think you’re biting into your favorite deep-dish pie. Just the right combination of pizza sauce, cheese, and yes, salty crunchiness.
I left the red pepper flake out when I made these pizza pretzel nuggets since I didn’t know how that’d go over at Anita’s office, but for me, this dish could use a bit of spiciness. It’s great on it’s own, don’t get me wrong, but I’m always of the opinion that spicy is better.
These yummy spicy garlic ranch pretzel bites are a different take on our bacon cheddar bites. I wanted to try something with a little more kick, and these have it. You really cannot stop eating them. They’re dangerous.You can make these with regular Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix if you don’t want a little spice, but even the spicy version is not that spicy. Everyone at Anita’s office loved these!
Oh yummy! Fun-to-eat (and make!) Reindeer noses make for great holiday treats! We love making a big ole batch of ‘noses’ and sharing them with Anita’s co-workers. How can you make these without smiling? How can you eat them without smiling? You can’t! They’re great! Creamy chocolate, crunchy sweet M&Ms and salty pretzels. The perfect combination!
You can also make these reindeer noses with Hershey’s Kisses instead of Rolos, but you might have to keep them in the oven a little longer so that the chocolate melts enough.
