Biscoff Cookie Butter Pretzels

biscoff pretzels

Why is it that, no matter how much you give your kids, they always want more?

You say, sure, have a cookie. They respond, “Can I have two?”

You say, yes, your BFF can come over for a few hours. They say, “Can she come over all day?”

You say, let’s skip washing your hair tonight, it’s late, we’ll wash it tomorrow. They beg, “Can we skip tomorrow too?”

Give an inch…take a mile, right?

As I type this, my daughter is sulking around moping. She’s boooooooored. She has noooothinggggg to doooooooo. I am spending a few minutes catching up online and making a mile-long Walmart list for first thing in the morning. Oh, and then I’m going to go put dinner in the oven, wash her hair, put sheets on my bed, and put away two loads of laundry. I didn’t get around to that this afternoon because we spent 3 hours taking Jordan to see the community theatre production of The Little Mermaid, where I spent $30, packed snacks but got two popcorns since she didn’t want to share.

Now I kind of feel like having a tantrum. Or making a tray of brownies. Or more of these pretzels, since they are loooooong gone.

Biscoff Pretzels

Back before Christmas I was trying to think of ideas for what to make for the school office staff and Jordan’s teacher. I didn’t want to make something baked, because, well. They get a lot of baked goods from everyone. Plus, I wanted something super easy I could do in a few minutes flat.

I went to my BFF Google and found these pretzels over at Averie Cooks. They were fast, easy, and made in the microwave. SOLD. But you know me…I have to change every recipe I try. My mind immediately went to the jar of Cookie Butter (Biscoff) I had in my cabinet. And, since Cookie Butter and white chocolate are BFFs, it was a natural progression to these: (Biscoff) Cookie Butter Pretzels {with White Chocolate}.

Seriously, they are made in the microwave. Heat and stir. Repeat twice. Pour on some cookie butter and white chocolate chips. Microwave. Stir. Spread. Sprinkle with nonpareils. Sit on hands waiting for them to cool. Eat enormous amounts and bag them up quickly so you don’t eat them all before you give them away. The end.

And yes, I put rainbow nonpareils on them at Christmastime. It’s, like, the food bloggers curse: I can’t post red and green after December 25th…so everything I make after December 15th is dressed plain for every day.
