Spicy Pretzels

Dorothy Curtis


Our son found this recipe in his recipe box and he had never fixed it so he brought the pretzels over along with the popping and topping oil and made up a batch for us to share with him. They are very spicy and really make a nice snack. If you want to tone the spicy down use less cayenne. We used the full amount and loved it. Pretzels are not my favorite snack but fixed this way I can't keep out of them.
