Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with a homemade treat? When chocolates and roses just won’t do, a little creativity is in order. We rounded up a handful of indulgent recipes featuring a classic crowdpleaser and versatile ingredient: pretzels!

Sweet Pretzels
Inspired by the famed-Swedish pearl sugar treats, this doughy take on the classic pretzel swaps in something sweet in lieu of the salt. Prepare the pretzel dough per the instructions, and sprinkle with a generous splash of pearl sugar and serve. 

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels
Our favorite part of this recipe? The hot fudge dipping sauce that (naturally) comes with. This ingenious recipe results in oversized pretzels with a warm and fluffy interior and a spicy, cinnamon-covered shell. 
Funfetti Cake Pretzels
This sweet and slightly savory combo features a mouthwatering cake-like consistency and a generous dose of funfetti sprinkles. The homemade dough results in the signature pretzel shell with a soft and fluffy filling. Best part? It’s easy to make and deliciously colorful! 
Maple Glazed Pretzels
Buttery, crisp, and delightfully sweet, this maple-glazed take on dipped pretzels makes for the perfect pairing for the cheeseboard! Coupled with hints of light brown sugar, this four-ingredient recipe is a must-try.
Salted Caramel, Chocolate-Covered Pretzels
Half Baked Harvest’s delectable twist on chocolate-covered pretzels has us seriously coveting a bite… or ten. Sweet, salty, and indulgently crunchy, this decadent recipe is not for the faint of heart. Start by dipping the pretzels in a thick caramel glaze, followed by a rich chocolate blend, and finish by garnishing with speckles of sea salt. 
Chocolate Dipped Pretzel S’mores
When two classic treats come together, good things are sure to be in store. This clever recipe combines crunchy pretzels with the ooey goodness of s’mores, baked to a warm, chocolatey level of perfection.
