Honey Mustard Snack Pretzels flavored with granulated honey, powdered mustard, onion and garlic. A little salty, a little sweet. Serve with mustard for dipping.

Creative pretzels, traditional pretzels, bake the pretzels of your choice!

I’m a soft pretzel kind of girl. This amber ale pretzel is my favorite.
Irish Amber Ale Soft Pretzels
That doesn’t mean I’ll pass on a hard version. We always have store bought dark pretzels in the house. My guy eats them every night. Peanuts too, but that’s a different story.
Most times a normal-sized soft pretzel is too big for snacking. Those big ones are more like a meal to me. I’m better off with a small version. Nugget size to be exact.
A soft pretzel bite is so less intimidating than a whopping big street treat version.
I tried coating them with a mixture of seasonings for a salty sweet taste. Granulated honey, powdered mustard, garlic and onion round out the flavor. Coarse salt too of course!
These bites are best eaten on day one. By day two they can get a bit overly chewy, especially in high humidity areas.

Honey Mustard Snack Pretzels and TV

A great idea for a TV time snack. Maybe watching a bit of football or a movie? I’d go for the movie.

    I’m glad that you shared a hard pretzel recipe, Cindy. I’m trying a hard pretzel next time.

    I know what you mean about how big the regular pretzels are. Sometimes we go down to the Hofbrau House in Kentucky for a beer (those come in huge liters) and they bring out the gigantic pretzels with beer cheese and it is pretty much dinner Because I can’t eat anything else until the next day!

  5. Salty sweet is my favorite flavor combination! These sound delicious!
