This recipe reads like a list of things that play well together no matter what: pretzels and peanut butter? Yes. Almonds and chocolate? Yes. Whipped cream and… well, everything? Obviously. Add it all together and the result is a decadent dessert worthy of any special occasion. The pretzel-almond butter crust works well with any number of fillings. Chocolate mousse, vanilla pudding, or caramel ice cream would all be delicious. Serving just to adults? Try folding some amaretto (an almond-flavored liqueur) into the whipped cream for an extra grown-up treat.
