With Cinco de Mayo just a few days away, I thought it would be fun to shake things up and serve something a bit different on this festive holiday. Going out to enjoy holidays has definitely changed over the years, especially since our kids can be a little wild. Instead, we celebrate at home with friends, yummy food, drinks, and music. It’s nice because we can schedule gatherings around nap time and bedtime. For this fun Cinco de Mayo tablescape, I wanted to create a snack bar that had a bit more substance than your usual chips and salsa, and wanted it to be family-friendly!
SUPERPRETZEL Soft Pretzels are my go-to for delicious, easy to make snacks. They’re great for after school, sleepovers, and movie nights. They are fully baked soft pretzels which and take only seconds to prepare. Since they’re frozen, you don’t have to worry about them sitting out on the counter going bad and can heat up as many or as few as you need to. Salt packs are included which is super convenient because, in my experience, regular salt does NOT taste like pretzel salt. I knew SUPERPRETZEL Soft Pretzels would be the perfect centerpiece item for this spread. They taste amazing dipped in fresh guacamole, salsa, queso and even with fresh lime juice squeezed over them. My husband built this adorable pretzel holder out of 1/2″ PVC pipe which I spray painted a dark bronze. I used shower curtain hooks and black and white bakers twine to hang the pretzels. What I love about this tablescape is that it definitely can be done on a budget and you can buy everything premade. I don’t have a ton of free time to make my own cheese dip or guacamole, so if I can buy something already made, I’m all over it!
In addition to the classic pretzel twists, SUPERPRETZEL also makes a Softstix Cheddar Cheese Filled Soft Pretzel Stick which has become a household staple. The kids love to snack on them after school and I love the convenience. For a limited time, you can save $0.50 off SUPERPRETZEL Original 6 count. Click here to download the coupon (desktop only).
