Did you know that Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell declared April 26 National Pretzel Day in 2003 to acknowledge the importance of the pretzel to the state’s history and economy? It is amazing to read about the history of pretzels and their variety of meanings attached to them. I am particularly happy that Glutino decided to make gluten free pretzels. I have been eating them for several years. My most favorite thing to do with them is to crush them up and sprinkle them on top of casseroles, the way I used to do with crackers before I started eating gluten free.
When Glutino sent me a box with samples of their pretzels, I loved the crunchy sweetness of the Gluten Free Yogurt Covered ones. I decided to make a sweet and salty snack to take on a picnic to the lake when Fabgrandpa goes fishing next time.
Sweet and Salty Gluten Free Party Mix
1 cup Gluten Free Chocolate Chex
1 5.5 oz bag of Glutino Gluten Free Yogurt Covered Pretzels
1 cup nuts, you favorite kind (I used mixed nuts)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup dried fruit (I used dried cranberries, but you can use your favorite. If I had some dried pineapple that would have really good in this mix)
1 cup Glutino Gluten Free Pretzel Sticks
Put all the ingredients in a large bowl, and stir to mix well. I stored mine in a gallon zip lock bag. Yummy! Makes six cups.
Oh, how good this is! It will be good for picnics, hikes, parties, kids school lunches, or just anytime you are wanting a snack!
