Sweet & Spicy Pretzel Bites
Serves: 5 cups
  • 5 cups pretzel nuggets
  • 6 Tbs. maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp .salt
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp. cayenne
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ginger
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and line a large jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Put the pretzels on the pan and when the oven comes to temperature, place them in the oven for about 4 minutes. The pretzels should be warm.
  2. While the pretzels are in the oven, pour the maple syrup in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients: sugar, salt, pepper, cayenne, cinnamon and ginger. Stir to combine.
  4. When the pretzels are done, pour them into the large bowl with maple syrup and mix well so all of the pretzels are coated. Then sprinkle on the sugar/spice mixture. Give the mixture a good stir to thoroughly combine.
  5. Pour the pretzels back on the parchment lined jelly roll pan to cool, which takes about 30 minutes. Store mixture in a zip-lock bag or tupperware container.
