After making your own homemade flavored pretzels with this recipe you might be inspired to get creative and invent your own flavor of seasoned pretzels, think garlic, Parmesan, sesame!

      Wow! Easy, breezy yummy snack. Will have to do this one - thanks! And I had to vote for potato chips, but pretzels come in a close second. Thanks for sharing your great recipe.

      I love everything about pretzels. My favorite are the fresh, warm, salted pretzels. We had a store near my home that just sold fresh pretzels many different ways. They went out of business due to the rising cost of flour. I miss them. Great recipe!

      We can't get flavored pretzels here in Peru, so I'm thrilled to have your recipe! I wonder if we could use it on potato chips as long as they're not too salty? I'm definitely going to give this a try. Thanks so much!
