Homemade Auntie Anne’s Pretzels

Pin It!

I still remember my first Auntie Anne’s pretzel. It was in West Chester, Pennsylvania, when I was eight years old.

Healthy Easter Desserts – 15 Healthy Recipes

Pin It!

When I was five years old, I created my very first homemade Easter dessert: A yellow marshmallow Peep, topped with a Hershey’s bar, smushed between two graham crackers, and microwaved until the filling stuck to the plate and created a sticky mess.
