Comment:  I was looking for a recipe to make my white fudge with pretzels.  I normally use a powdered sugar recipe but wanted to try something different.  This is a little more work but the butter flavor is well worth it.  I usually add my crushed pretzels to the actual candy but didn't know if the added ingredient to this type of recipe would keep it form setting so I sprinkled them on the bottom and poured the hot candy over them.  I also sprinkled a few on top as an added touch.  This candy is too good!  I had to get all of it out of my house quickly so I wouldn't eat too much.
