  • 3 cups broken up pretzel pieces
  • 1/3 cup Dixie Crystal's granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter melted
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup Dixie Crystal's powdered sugar
  • 1 20 oz can crushed pineapple drained
  • 1 8 oz tub whipped topping thawed


  • Add the pretzels, butter, & sugar to a large mixing bowl. Stir everything together until the pretzels are all evenly coated.
  • Transfer the pretzels to a rimmed sheet pan that's been spread with parchment paper. Spread them out evenly into a single layer.
  • Bake the pretzels at 400 degrees for 8 minutes.
  • Remove the pretzels from the oven, and spread them onto a large sheet of parchment paper on a flat surface. Make sure they're in a single even layer, not touching each other as much as possible. Allow them to cool completely.
  • Add the powdered sugar & cream cheese to a large mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer, cream them together until smooth.
  • Add the pineapple, stirring to evenly incorporate. Fold in the whipped topping until the mixture's smooth.
  • When ready to serve, fold in half of the candied pretzels. Sprinkle the remaining pretzels evenly out over top.
  • Serve immediately.
