  1. My Mama made this many years ago (in the 50's & 60's) as a treat usually at christmas time. No pretzel bits at the time but all the rest seems to be how I remember it thanks for renewing a memory & also for a very nice recipe....yummmmy
  2. This was swimming in oil! I had to drain it in a strainer and line the bowl with paper towels to soak up the oil. I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt and it was still too salty. Maybe 1/2 the oil and salt would work better and be a lot healthier.

  4. I CAN NOT BELIEVE MY EYES! THIS IS A SLIGHT TAKE OFF OF MY GRANDMOTHER'S FAMOUS (IN TOLEDO, OHIO) RECIPE. I'VE YET TO HAVE HEARD THIS REFERRED TO AS NUTS AND BOLTS EXCEPT IN OUR FAMILY!

  7. This is a very good recipe. I did make some changes to suit my family's tastes. I agree with a previous reviewer that it would probably be too salty for us so I replaced garlic salt with garlic powder and replaced season salt with Mrs.Dash Table blend. If one is worried about the oil I'm - Read more ...
  8. I must have gotten sidetracked somewhere. I was looking for healthy kids snacks. 2 cups of veg oil..over 50 g of fat..over 1600 mg of sodium..you must be kidding.
  9. This recipe was a huge hit with all the family at a recient gathering. I had to make a second batch for many to take home.
