Oh, my! These are soooooo yummy! I'm glad I'm taking them to a welcome fellowship at church. LOL! I used the little pretzel nibblers, but they were really hard to work with so took more time. I would probably try it with the square pretzels next time to make easier to spread. I heated up the peanut butter in a ziploc bag and cut an end and squeezed it out to make it easier. I probably used 1-1/2 cups of peanut butter and also had some caramel mixture leftover. I also just drizzled the caramel all over the pretzels. When it came to dipping them, I used actual chocolate chips/paraffin and did both milk and semisweet, using 2-1/2 bags to finish them all. Instead of pulling each individual one, I pulled several at a time. Lots of work but oh so worth it!! ;) Thanks, CoffeeBarista!
