Honey Mustard Pretzels

Do you have a beer handy? Good. Now get it out, crack it, pour it and make these pretzels so that you can enjoy another cold one. Just for good measure. These honey mustard pretzels tangy enough to accompany that hoppy beer with perfect zest and zeal yet sweet enough to finish with that wonderful linger on your tongue. Honey and mustard, if ever there was a match made on a bar stool, this would be it.

My dear blogging friend Cassie whipped up an easy pretzel mix last week with Taco Seasoned Pretzels and I was positively inspired to make my own. With her promise of gleek worthy snacks and the easy preparation I was totally in, beer at the ready.

With a half bag of pretzels at my disposal and a Blue Moon Abbey Ale I was itching to go.

Because I used a liquid mixture (mustard) as my main seasoning I reduced the amount of oil needed to coat the pretzels to 1/4 cup and compensated it with the mustard. It all added up to about the same in the end.

For extra zing an addition of 1 heaping teaspoon of powdered mustard was added,

along with a tablespoon and a half (more or less) of honey,

and a another quarter cup of basic yellow mustard.

Into the big ol’ mixing bowl it went, tossed together until it was a heaping bowl of beer lusting yumminess.

The whole kit and kaboodle was baked for an hour at 200 degrees, tossed occasionally and then devoured whilst barely warm.

I was blown away at their ease and simplicity. And now there is no need for midnight runs to the store for honey mustard pretzels when I’m feeling hormonal, PMSy and munchy. Wait. What? I’m the only weirdo who does that? No judging. Just leave me to my beer and pretzels.

    Ok, you two have now officially made me crave pretzels and they are like absolutely last on my list of snacks that I crave. although, my boss did send me this holiday basket this year with a mustard raspberry pretzel dip and that pretty much ensures that I’ll eat a bag of them. This is very similar to the ingredients on that dip so I’m pretty sure I would LOVE it!

    Wow, these look easy and delicious! I love pretzels with spicy mustard. I wonder how this baked version would taste with a really serious spicy mustard? (I tend not to be a fan of French’s yellow. Blech.) Fun snack!

    These slay me because I won’t be able to enjoy either (pretzels or beer) until Passover ends on Saturday night and ohmigod I am such a sucker for pretzels covered in things. Please tell me that you ate some of these for me.
