What’s Cooking Wednesday: Spicy Pretzels

Today’s recipe is a great dish to take with you to a party or to serve as an appetizer. My husband LOVES spicy food, so he was dying to try out an idea he got from someone at work. We bought a bag of pretzel rods and he got to work!

After breaking the pretzel rods into pieces, soak them for 20-30 minutes in hot sauce.

When they have soaked, strain them and then pat them with paper towels to get off all the excess. That is the key to making sure your pretzels aren’t mushy. Then,  bake them at 300 degrees for 15 minutes, turning them halfway through.

The end result: SPICY pretzels! My brother and his girlfriend came over yesterday and, before I could warn them, popped a pretzel in their mouths. It tastes normal at first. Then, the spice hits. Yum! Note: These are best when served with ranch dressing.
