...and this is what I'm making today

Celebration Church is having a game night tonight and this is the Shrodes family contribution. (We're having appetizers and desserts along with games.) Yes, I know the combination of strawberries and pretzels might seem strange, but if you have never had this before, try it just once...I promise you, it's absolutely moan-worthy. You will thank your lucky stars that I gave you this recipe.
