White Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzels

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzels

So it’s Valentine’s Day this week. Are you celebrating? It might be obvious that I am not. Don’t get me wrong, a small gift from my parents is always welcome (hint, hint), but it’s just another day, except everyone’s celebrating their love and I don’t have a love in my life.

Maybe I was crazy thinking Match.com would be the answer to my never ending search for love, but I kind of thought it might lead to something. I’ve heard so many people talk about how wonderful it is. How they’ve met their boyfriends/girlfriends/husbands/wives . . . even just a friend.

Me? I’ve been on three lame dates. I’ve sent well over a hundred different guys an email. And you know what? Most of them ignore me. And I really don’t know why. It’s making me feel like something is wrong with me.

Then there are the guys I talk to for awhile. Then they just stop. For no reason. Out of the blue. It makes me crazy. Men are incomprehensible.

Oh, and lest I forget the guy who seemed kind of normal and nice. We chatted. He said he thought we’d be better as friends than boyfriend/girlfriend. This was fine with me. I can use a friend. After all of this you know what he did? He sexted me. At least I think it was a sext. I’m not exactly well versed in that field. Needless to say I’ll be ignoring that message.

There is one other guy. He seems nice, but he’s been stringing me along for a couple months. He has had a lot going on, but is it weird he hasn’t wanted to meet?

Maybe by next Valentine’s Day I’ll have some more love in my life. Or maybe I should face facts and get a cat.

Then again, I could just make more of these pretzels because I am in love with them. They are so easy to make, and can easily be made gluten free with gluten free pretzels, but there’s something about their sweet and salty, crunchy goodness that keeps me going back for more every single day. They’d be a great gift for your Valentine, or perhaps an even better way to drown your single girl sorrows while watching a movie. You know which option I’ll be using 🙂

  1. Mmmm. Double winner for those of us who have a penchant for salty pretzels and sweet chocolates =) As for your Match.com experiences and the many e-mails sent…looks to be a blessing of protection….Maybe it doesn’t feel that way right now but when Prince Charming appears, then you may say, “Aha! I was meant to wait for this precious one…And he’s arrived at the perfect time, after all.”…I’ll spare you the details but as one who was married briefly, divorced, did a stint at GreatExpectations and got her heart severely broken numerous times….I was oh, so grateful when my Prince Charming (and true husband) arrived at age 38. P.s. Do believe you are a smarter cookie than I was in my 20s so I trust your true love will arrive sooner =)

      Thank you for the nice comment. I know that the right guy will come in time, and I am very willing to wait. Plus, I think if I could get my writing career going, I may meet a guy who has more similar interests, values, and goals for life.

  2. I’m sorry you’re having bad luck on match.com….you’re gorgeous so you will meet someone!! And it helps you’re a great baker 🙂 My brother met his wife on eharmony and I’ve heard a lot of success stories with that site.
    Love the pretzels – Valentine’s day is all about the sweets for me…the rest I could care less!

  3. You’ll find someone! Don’t get down. You’re still really young and honestly, most men don’t mature until they’re 35 these days… Patience is a virtue, right?! In the meantime, these pretzels look like they’d be the perfect replacement for a Valentine’s Day date. I’d cuddle up with a big ol’ plate of them and a glass of vino and watch whatever I wanted on TV 🙂

    These are just so cute. I love how you made them different. Your time will come. We all had some duds in our past so don’t think you are alone. My true happiness didn’t start until I was 34!

  5. These are adorable!! I second the other commenters, have patience, the right guy will arrive when it’s meant to be. A good friend of mine had wonderful luck with OKCupid (they are now engaged and just had a baby!!) and another friend met his love on Chemistry.com – they’re now married a few years. I would say if you’re having no luck with Match, then ride out your free period and try another one. Two cents…. Best of luck to you! It will happen!

    • Laura says:

      I checked out Chemistry because it’s associated with Match and I didn’t like it at all. I didn’t pay, so I suspended my account. But I’m definitely checking out Ok Cupid.

    I love them, so cute and so delicious, I’m sure!
    I know you’re right, almost not worth going for date.
    You’re very young Lautra, he will come when you will not waiting for.

  7. Laura, I’m sure Mr. Right will come when you least expect it and maybe not even looking. (Hoping the same for myself too. LOL) Meanwhile a chick flick and these pretzels will totally do! 🙂

  8. Joanne says:

    Awwww. FACT: online dating sucks. But also FACT: online dating is how the.boy and i met. So…it does work! But you really need to give it a lot of time. Maybe try Ok Cupid instead? It’s free!

    So these are officially my ultimate favorite snack food!

    • Laura says:

      I will totally check out Ok Cupid. Match says it has a free trial . . . but that’s not really true. To actually correspond with anyone you have to pay. I mean worth it if it works, but still.

      They’re my favorite snack food too. I have literally eaten one or two or three every day for the past week. I have never done that with anything I’ve ever made before. So simple, yet so tasty.

  9. Oh my… these pretzels look amazing. And yes, I definitely think you should make these again. I am thinking of making them myself 🙂

  10. It takes time for good things to happen, so I’m sure one of these days Valentine’s Day will be one of your favorite days of the year! And any day I could have these pretzels would be amazing. 😉

    • Laura says:

      I am realizing more by the day that it takes time for all kinds of good things to happen . . . love, career, all of it.

  11. What a delicious and simple snack! I love combining sweet and salty, and pretzels are perfect for it! I could eat so many of these.
