Fluffy Twists!

It’s National Marshmallow Toasting Day! We love marshmallows! In fact, did you know that our pretzels make great s’mores? Here’s a few ideas for some twisted s’mores:

Apple Cinnamon Delight: Spread your toasty marshmallow all over a warm apple cinnamon pretzel. Rip off pieces of your pretzel the same size of your marshmallow and toast together!

Chocolate Marshmallow Crumb: Toasted marshmallow and chocolate! Yummy. Spread your warm, oozy marshmallow all over your warm pretzels and enjoy!

Cinnamon Sugar: Take a traditional pretzels and roll in melted butter and cinnamon sugar. Spread your marshmallow on and enjoy!
