Roasted Pretzels, a festive foods rewind

During the next few days, I will share some delicious recipes that are perfect for the upcoming holiday gatherings that may occur at your home with family and friends. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

This recipe originally posted December 4, 2009.

Pretzels, I love them. They are cheap, versatile and always in season. They seem to be somewhat ignored, but this recipe will change that. Crunchy, sweet, savory, spicy and a touch of salt. I don't know about you, but surely covers all the flavor personalities that I want in my snack. Upon making these more than once, I have learned a trick or two about the cooling process.


Roasted Pretzels
adapted from Everybody loves sandwiches
300 degree oven

4 c pretzels
2 T butter
3 T real maple syrup
5 T brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground Chipotle (this amount offers a pleasant warm after taste)
1/2 tsp garlic salt

In a small saucepan melt butter and maple syrup together, stir in brown sugar bring to a boil. Stir in cinnamon, ground chipotle and garlic salt. Pour over pretzels, stir to coat evenly. Spread out onto a shallow pan. Bake 10 minutes, stir to bring coating syrup back onto the pretzels. Continue to bake 10 minutes more.

Remove from oven and let cool on the pan about 3 minutes, stir to separate. Repeat this step in about 5 minutes. Let cool completely on the baking pan. This will help keep the pretzels separate and easy to serve.  Store in an air tight container, or just start eating!

 update:  If you are taking these to work to share, grab a stack of coffee filters and a set of serving tongs. Everyone can serve themselves into the little filter cups and enjoy them at their desk.

  1. These sound great. My girl loves pretzels so I think I'll make some for her (and us). Unfortunately, I'll have to omit the chipotle for her. Thanks for the inspiration, Rocquie

  2. YUM! I love pretzels! These make my mouth water just reading the ingredients!

  3. i do something similar with a trash mix but loving that you go even easier and just use pretzels. wonderful idea!

  4. Another really easy recipe. Perfect for potlucks or movie night.

  5. Sounds like a great snack food to take along to a party, thanks for sharing.

    Happy cooking!
