Made these last night. Took me all of about an hour to do a big batch. Once i got the hang of doing these, they went by very quickly. I discovered the best way to dip the pretzels (i used the bow tie ones) was to hold it by one loop, dip the other two loops, let dry, then hold by the covered loop and dip the uncovered loop. I set them in the freezer to completely harden before bagging them up to give to my kids teachers and co-workers. And the taste was FANTASTIC. My bf said they tasted just like Flipz brand. Thanks for the awesome recipe.
