Quick, No-Bake Cookie Squares

Janet Groene’s
Pretzel Cookie Squares

You'll need a very large container to mix these yummy cookies. I use a clean, buttered dishpan, then, when done putting mixture into pan, just add hot soapy water to clean the dishpan. This is a cousin of the famous crispy rice squares Mother used to make. Salty pretzels give them a special tang. For easier slicing use a serrated knife such as a ginzu or a steak knife. 

1 ½ sticks butter
16-ounce bag of marshmallows
1 tablespoon Watkins Imitation Caramel Extract
4 cups chopped mini pretzels
6 cups popcorn
2 cups nuts or M&Ms

    Butter a 9 X 13-inch pan. In a pan or a microwave container, melt butter and marshmallows. Stir in extract. Mix pretzels, popcorn and nuts in a large bowl or clean dishpan and fold in marshmallow mixture. Using the back of a wet spoon press mixture into buttered pan. When it’s completely cool, cut in squares. Makes 15 to 20 cookies.
