Being a pretzel freak, and also loving the sweet/salty taste of baked goods, these are a favorite of mine. Got this out of a Woman's Day magazine.

these were great little treats! my family just kept munching these down all weekend. We all agreed they're 5 star worthy. Yum!

I don't know what went wrong here...I followed the recipe to a 't'. These were grainy and oddly 'milky' (I even went back to make sure the milk was still good, it was) despite the abundance of chocolate. I even waited until the next day to see if they'd get better with more chill time. I'm sad to say that no, they didn't improve and the whole lot was thrown out.

these are totally habit-forming, lucky I gave these to my DS and GF or I would have finished them off myself, I used regular canned condensed milk next time I am going to try these using my recipe#73863, thanks for sharing Coffee!
