Don’t get tied up in knots over whether to reach for salty snacks or sweet snacks when you open your pantry door on National Pretzel Day. We know that for every mustard-flavored pretzel lover out there, there is someone else craving a more dessert-like mouthfeel. We feel you, friend. Fret not: You can enjoy the best of both worlds.
For those salty folks out there (you know who you are), we’re here to propose a compromise: Order the savory snack, then let us bake something sweet with the rest. Ah, the beauty of bulk.
Chocolate Pretzel Pie
Putting pretzels in pie crust is evil genius. To boot, this three-ingredient crust and two-ingredient pie from Julie Blanner is easy to make. We used our Snyder’s of Hanover Mini Pretzels and Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars and before we knew it, dessert was served. (No judgment if you find yourself eating this for breakfast, too.)
Speaking of breakfast….

Healthy Pretzel Pancakes
We paired Stonewall Kitchen Farmhouse Pancake & Waffle Mix with Snyder’s of Hanover Mini Pretzels and drizzled the results with Hershey’s Chocolate Sauce in an adaptation from Amy’s Healthy Baking Blog. Because you can have your chocolate and pretzels and eat them in pancakes, too. (Maple syrup purists, you can stick to the sticky stuff, too.)
Oreo Peanut Butter Pretzel Treats
Oreos. Peanut butter. Pretzels. These are a few of our favorite things… and now they’re in one amazing recipe. We used our 30 pack of Oreos, Nestle Toll House Chocolate Morsels, Skippy Peanut Butter and Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Sticks to make this mouth-watering recipe from Snack Works.

There’s a pretzel for every person out there, promise.
Are you a sweet or salty pretzel lover?
