Caprese Pretzel Bombs are Mozzarella, tomato and basil stuffed pretzels, and they’re just as delicious as you can imagine.
I know it’s the dead ass of winter.
But I love tomatoes.
And I really love Mozzarella (but not nearly as much as my husband; he’ll eat a one pound ball like an apple and finish it, and it honestly grosses me out).
I’ve learned to keep a good stash of petite diced tomatoes in my pantry; I do so much with them.
And I really, really love basil.
Maybe I’m trying to convince summer to get here early.
Now wouldn’t it be great if we had the ability to do things like that…
I’m pretty damn sick of the cold weather already. It’s January and I’m praying that we make it through until Spring without an ice storm like last year, when I got stuck at work for 3 solid days.
I had to wear underwear and scrubs handed out by the hospital and I didn’t sleep at all.
Seriously – very little – maybe a 20-30 minute nap two or three times.
Thank you Tiny Baby Jesus they had plenty of toothbrushes. It was traumatic, to say the least.
And my poor husband had to deal with my frustrated and exhausted ass when he picked me up after driving through the ice to get to me when I could finally break free.
Let’s all hope that it will be more like about three years ago when we got an early spring in February (well, here in Alabama we did) when it spiked into the ’70’s in February and winter just never looked back.
That kinda winter needs to come back more often.
Make Caprese Pretzel Bombs So You Can Show Off
These pretzel bombs are definitely a good substitute for the real deal Caprese during the blah winter to hold you over until summer. Don’t be intimidated by the pretzel recipe; it’s fool proof.
I’ve made it twenty bazillion dozen times.
If I can do it, you can do it. Then, you can call your friends, your mom, your sister and brag about what you just did.
The balsamic dipping sauce is pretty much the bomb; I could probably drink it. Really try not to skip that part, because it’s definitely a crucial element, in my opinion.
