    I'm having thanksgiving at my house for the first time ever! And once I saw this recipe I had to try it out. It's going to be one of best deserts my family has ever seen, and maybe it will even be a new tradition! I made a trial batch over the weekend and they turned out wonderfully! The only thing I might change/add is more pretzels. It needs more of a crunch. So I recommend crushing some pretzels up and adding it to the peanut butter dough mixture. And maybe add some cracked sea salt too.

    I usually by natural peanut butter (the type that needs to be stirred). Will this type of peanut butter work for this recipe, or do I need to buy a brand like Jiff or Skippy?
