Now, I can’t take credit for this recipe. I actually got it from my friend Kinleigh, who it turn got it from her friend so I’m not sure of the actual author is — but! If you’re out there thanks much for this awesome snack time, game time, any time food! 

Seriously Spicy Pretzels

Basically, these pretzels are just jazzed up store bought pretzels laced with heavy doses of cayenne pepper (hence spicy). Now when I say spicy, I mean they give ya a kick but it’s not like crazy, you know? However, I would say that if you don’t like spicy things, then just don’t add the cayenne pepper and stick with the garlic powder and lemon pepper. Too easy.

Once you toss all the ingredients in a bag — you don’t even have to wash dishes for this! It’s a simple matter of baking the pretzels and whipping up your favorite dip and voila! Snack time. 

The burn is slow with these babies, so watch out! The heat will build and soon your mouth will be on fire. Don’t like it too hot? feel free to leave out all but a tsp of the cayenne pepper and up the garlic powder. You’ll still have flavorful pretzels, they just won’t be as spicy.

I hope you are having a good one where ever you might be and I’ll see ya next time!
