I thought I would try using little butter cookies as the base instead of pretzels. These are cheapo butter cookies from Wally World and to be honest...they make them just a little too sweet. So I bought a package of Lorna Doones (which cost 4 times as much) and of course, they were much better...less sweet.
For my next mini batch, I think I'll get some salted pecans to try on top...it's missing that little salt kick from the pretzels. I wish the square woven pretzels were a bit bigger...maybe I only saw the mini ones.
