BackstoryThis recipe is still in need of some tweaking. It was well liked, but I thought there was too much marshmallow. My thoughts is to add about half the marshmallow to the pretzels and see if it is enough. Or you could figure a way to cut the recipe in half or thirds. But it is a great combination of salty and sweet, I like it better than Rice Krispie Treats.

- .75 oz, or 3 pkgs. unflavored gelatin
- 3/4 c. water, divided
- 2 c. sugar

- In a bowl, sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 c. water, set aside for ab 10 min.
- combine sugar, karo syrup, and remaining water in a small saucepan.
