Chocolate Pretzel Bites
This one goes out to our culinary challenged friends who still insist on baking during the holidays. Instead of forcing your friends to lie to your face about how amazing your burnt, tasteless sugar cookies are, maybe try a different approach this year and make something you can't screw up. Chocolate Pretzel Bites are just the thing! If you find a way to mess these up, you really just shouldn't be allowed near an oven.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
