Here’s my line up of ingredients. Nice and simple!

I used Snackwells Fudge Pretzels in my dessert. Mmmm!

How to Make These Mini Pies

Start by baking 1/4 cup cookie dough into small pie plates or ramekins.

Take your Snackwells Fudge Pretzels and…..

….crush them into your pudding/Cool Whip mix.

Give it all a nice stir.

Place dollops of filling over cooled cookie crust.

Here you have adorable simple little pies! Enjoy 🙂

    What a FANTASTIC idea! I JUST bought little ramekins so I will have to try this, and soon. I love the salty/sweet combo 🙂


    I LOVE those little white dishes! I’m going to look for some and then I’m going to make this fabulous looking dessert!

  7. Living The Sweet Life

    The fact that this Peanut butter Pretzel pie looks so delicious and is SO easy to make is a little bitter sweet … sweet that I’m going to want it all the time now 😉 lol but bitter because its swimsuit season … hmmm looks like I’ll have to invest in a coverup 😉

  8. Jamie | My Baking Addiction

    Love the ease of these, Jenny! And I totally agree with Devon, there is definitely a little something-something in those pretzels!

  9. Devon @ the food bitch blog

    Those Snackwells chocolate covered pretzels are laced with crack. So yummy!

    Now I’m craving cool whip.

  10. Heidi @ Bits of Sunshine

    I like this idea! Too bad we dont get cool whip here in south africa, but i would like to try these anyway, I love cookie crusts 🙂 A simple dessert is always the best – and everyone enjoys it just as much as one you have spent hours on!

      1. Lorraine

        If you can get heavy whipping cream, you can make your own! I prefer it to cool whip when making sweet desserts. I simply whip it into whipped cream and omit all or most of the sugar. That way it cuts back on the overall sweetness.

  11. Lynna H.

    Ohh, this is so neat!! 🙂 i bet adding those Snackwells Chocolate Covered Pretzels made the whipped cream so much better!

  12. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    Great idea, Jenny! I am loving the Cool Whip desserts lately and this is such a smart idea. Those pretzels…and that pudding/mixture. YUM!
