The Sweet Taste of Dipped Twists

In previous posts, we have talked about dips to accompany your favorite twists. In this post, we want to focus on how to make our sweet pretzels sweeter! Our first recipe comes from Darlene who shared on of her favorite dips.

Darlene’s Dip: Darlene mixes 1/2 cup of marshmallow fluff, 1/2 cup of soft whipped cream cheese and 1 tsp orange zest or 2 tbsp of orange juice. She recommends serving these with your favorite sweet pretzel. Make sure you store this dip in the fridge!

Caramel Cheesecake Dip: This recipe from Cooking Classy calls for 2 8oz packages of cream cheese chilled, 1 cup of caramel ice cream topping chilled and 1 store bought graham cracker pie crust crumbled. Place cream cheese in a mixing bowl and using an electric mixer, whip cream cheese until smooth and fluffy for about 1 minute. Stir in caramel ice cream topping. Break graham cracker pie crust into pieces and place pieces in a ziploc bag, then seal bag and using a rolling pin crush graham cracker crust pieces until finely broken (there should no longer be chunks).  Store cheesecake dip in refrigerator up to one week. The original recipe calls for fresh apples, but we think this recipe will be great with our apple cinnamon stuffed pretzels.

S’mores Dip: This dip from A Crafty Cook calls for 1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk, 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of marshmallow cream. In a small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips and condensed milk on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally(stopping about every 30 seconds to stir), until chips are melted. Stir to mix well. Pour into 9-inch glass pie pan, spreading evenly. Drop marshmallow creme by tablespoonfuls randomly over chocolate mixture. Microwave on High about 30 seconds or until marshmallow creme is softened.  Immediately with knife, make several small swirls through marshmallow and chocolate, creating a marbled appearance. We think this would be a great dip to serve with our chocolate crumb pretzels.
