Grandma’s Pretzel Dessert (“poem”)


  • crushed pretzels
  • hungry granddaughter
  • butter
  • sugar
  • cream cheese – don’t worry about being lactose intolerant, it’s not for you anyway
  • whipped topping
  • strawberry jello – her favorite
  1. Wait until your granddaughter’s favorite holiday or special occasion rolls around. Perhaps Thanksgiving, birthdays, cookouts.
    1. Remember, granddaughter must ask for pretzel dessert and you should let out a sigh when her request is made.
    2. Make her work for it, pretend it is a burden for you, that you hate making it.
  2. When you are done with work, shop for ingredients. Remember which are her favorites.
    1. Forget about the time when you bought the wrong ones and made pretzel soup instead.
      1. Remember, even if you forget, granddaughter will always bring it up.
    2. Magically combine ingredients in pan – pretzels, butter sugar – bake in oven, then chill
      1. Granddaughter does not know the magical steps required here. Keep them a secret so she will continue to ask for you to make the dessert before she learns and makes it herself.
    3. Pour cream cheese and jello overtop of pretzel base, chill again
    4. Bring dessert to the desired special occasion
      1. Granddaughter will think you have forgotten her request and will reward you with a hug and kiss when you present her with her favorite dessert.
