The Six Year Plan - Kretzels

Dear Reader,

Today is the day. Today, your life changes. When you're on your death bed, you will think back to this single moment and realize the significance it held on your legacy. What you're feeling is premature enlightenment. This is the greatest moment of your life, and you're off somewhere, missing it. Just in time for the "Holiday Season."

Today, world, I give you Kretzels.


This is Michael. His last name is Kretz. When we party, he brings the pretzels, or as I once referred to them, the Kretzels. Sure, it's a lame joke, but hey, that's who I am. I couldn't let the pun end there though, and subsequently, this man is now an inspiration. We owe everything to him. Shake this mans hand if you ever run into him. SO CHECK THIS SHIT OUT YO.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- 4 Tbsp's Butter (Half stick)
- 18 oz Marshmallow Minis
- 16 oz Bag of Pretzels (I experimented with the mini twists)
- 2 fl. oz. Maple Syrup (works best with the real stuff, not that knock off shit)
- 16 oz Semi-Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips
- 16 oz Peanut Butter (I used Jif because i didn't have anything else...)

HOW TO DO IT:
- Get a medium/large pot. Set the stove-top to medium-high (like a 6/10)
- Once pot has warmed a bit, add the butter and marshmallows. Stir until melted, with homogeneous texture.
- Add the maple syrup and stir again.
- At this point, you can turn the stove down a bit, to about 4/10. You only need it warm enough to keep the marshmallow somewhat fluid. Start dipping the pretzels in the mixture, and lay out on cookie sheet with wax paper to cool.
- After all the pretzels are covered in marshmallow, start melting the chocolate and peanut butter in a medium sized pot. (Click HERE if you're an idiot.)
- Once melted, coat pretzels with chocolate mixture. Feel free to taste test before pouring.
- Set in refrigerated for 15 minutes.
- Peel off wax paper, and enjoy.

PRO-TIPS:
- Next time I make them, I'm going to try them layered. I'll use a normal glass casserole type dish, start with a layer of chocolate, then add a couple layers of pretzel sticks (arranged in a Lincoln Logs fashion), then pour the marshmallow all over that (it'll seep through all the layers of pretzel). After that, I'll add another layer of chocolate mix. It neutralizes the wax paper and makes eating them way more convenient/clean. My recipes are always open to improv.



"You mad, Bro?"

Until Next Time.
