This was really fun. I have to say, I found myself picking out the pretzels...I'm not a huge candy eater so next time I might even make it with just pretzels! I do love that the pretzel mixture includes dry milk instead of flour (yeah calcium). I did cut down the butter to 4 tlbs and used some extra pretzels (I measured before crushing and wasn't sure if I was supposed to or crush first).
