Pretzel Hack 1: Pretzel tart crust

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.

Add fruit and cheese cubes to pretzel sticks for an easy party snack. Small pieces of fruit, like grapes or apple slices, work best. Lay them out on a cutting board or serving dish for a fan-favorite appetizer.
Pretzel Hack 3: Candy-pretzel bites
Whether served as a dessert or a snack, these bites are always a crowd-pleaser. Place small pretzels on a lined baking tray and top each of them with a piece of chocolate candy. Bake at 200 degrees for four to five minutes. Add a smaller piece of chocolate-coated candy to the top when it’s melty.
