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.)

    This looks like such a perfect summer salad. I would definitely add a ton of cilantro. I love it!

    oh Yum, I will have to try this. Way to improvise in the kitchen, looks like your kitchen is still in the works.

    I’m in so long as I can pick out the tomatoes! 🙂 Not a fan of them.

    Btw, I made your 40 clove chicken in the slow cooker…..HOLY COW, was that good and so easy (best part)! I’d made it before but a different recipe and not in the slow cooker. My honey actually put it all in the crockpot. My Mom loved it!

    It is so good. For anyone who’s thinking about making it. DO IT! I also made it again the other day. I didn’t have an avocado around, so I just mixed in a packet of Wholly Guacomole instead. It was delicious.
