White Chocolate Pretzel Snack

I make these sweet crunchy treats often during holidays. They're nice to have on hand to serve or to take as a hostess gift. This is extremely easy to make, and my children love to help. —Estelle Cummings Cambridge, Maryland

    My neighbor made these - but neither of us us fond of pretzels (and she used to have a bakery and candy shop) so she substituted shoestring potatoes (potato sticks) for the pretzels. (so you still have the salt/chocolate thing going and she ground the nuts finely, and added finely chopped dried cherries (or sometimes dried cranberries). YUM!!! Addictive.
