Soft Pretzels have always been a favorite snack for Philadelphians, however they have become popular all over the country. Wendys now has the Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger, Sonic features a Pretzel Dog, and little Caesar's has a Pretzel Crust Pizza.

Hard pretzels have always been a go to snack for get-togethers, they go great with wine or beer, dips, in party mixes and even dipped in chocolate. With this recipe you'll be upping your pretzel game.

This recipe is a twist (pun-intended) on your plain old hard pretzel. You've probably seen flavored pretzel snacks in the grocery store; however, they are expensive and it's a small bag. Here's an inexpensive way to make delicious seasoned pretzels right at home. You might want to make a double batch, they're addictive! After making these you might be inspired to get creative and invent your own flavor of seasoned pretzels, think garlic, Parmesan, sesame!

Make Your Own

It's no wonder American’s spend about $500 million dollars a year on pretzels, they come in so many delicious varieties and are so versatile! You can sprinkle them on top of your ice cream, or enjoy a pretzel cone filled with ice cream. You can even use them as a crust for cooking boneless chicken breasts. They are a great low fat snack with so many varieties to choose from - nibs, waffles, sticks, peanut butter filled, seasoned, cracker flips, sourdough, chocolate covered and more. Now you can make gourmet pretzels at home with this easy recipe.

The best pretzels to use for making this recipe are sourdough nuggets, which can often be found in your local Dollar Tree store for just 1.00 a bag!

Lancaster county Pennsylvania is the home to the first hard pretzels, invented by the Pennsylvania Dutch community. If you travel to Pennsylvania, be sure to add a pretzel factory tour to your travel plans!

      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!
