My husband likes to make Christmas treats with pretzels. And who am I to stop him? This year was no different. They always have a little something different each year. The name came about because he started calling them turtles and my daughter said they didn't look like turtles, so, they became toads. They are a bit toad-like at that.
This year he decided to pair the nuts with the pretzels and just use dark chocolate to bind them. I really like the less-sweetness of them. He also made a batch with peanut butter and chocolate. I liked the plain chocolate best but the pb ones were ok too. In the past they have included marshmallow and pb and caramel. Sometimes totally covered in chocolate. I wonder what will evolve next year?
