Spicy Sweet Pretzel Party Mix

Here’s another great Superbowl snack idea. This mix is spicy and sweet and crunchy and very addictive. It’s a snap to throw together and different from the store bought Chex mix that you might see at some Superbowl parties. I doubled this recipe and have it waiting in a ziplock bag for our Superbowl party on Sunday.

Other Superbowl party worthy foods:
Chicken Wings
Soft Pretzels
Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Mini Ham and Cheese Sandwiches
Bacon Wrapped Dates

Spicy Sweet Pretzel Party Mix

The perfect gameday snack mix!

Yield: Serves 8

Ingredients:

2 cups thin pretzel sticks
1 cup natural almonds
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons dark-brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, toss together pretzels and almonds.

In a small saucepan, bring butter, sugar, cayenne, and 1 tablespoon water to a boil, stirring constantly. Pour over pretzel mixture in bowl; gently toss to combine.

Spread pretzel mixture in a single layer on prepared sheet. Bake until almonds are crisp, about 20 minutes, tossing occasionally. Cool on sheet before serving. (To store, keep at room temperature, up to 5 days.)

    I love fun new burger recipes, can’t wait to see what else is in the line up. This recipe is intriguing. I’m really curious about the use of smoked salmon along with regular salmon. Too bad I had a whole bunch of smoked salmon this weekend for a party, and there is none leftover – otherwise I would definitely be trying this this week!

    I love the combo with the smoked salmon – so much flavor! And these look really moist too. I’ll have to give them a shot! Yum!

    We do salmon burgers with the canned salmon when we want a quick and delicious meal! I also always add some chopped peppers into the patty.. delicious! Can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
