I make this recipe every year and its a fabulous recipe.

The only thing I do differently is I used the skinny pretzel sticks. First you break the pretzels in half (about a half a bags worth, it doesn't have to be exact) and then a full can of peanuts and on bag of white chocolate chips. You can break more than one at a time so it goes faster. I also use just white cholate chips.
