Salty, Crunchy, Sweet
Make these NOW! No, they're not cleansing. No, they're not healthy. No, they're not virtuous. In fact, you should definitely avoid trying to calculate the sodium content of these salty, crunchy, sweet, mustardy bites. Don't even bother. But they. are. so. good. They're just what I needed after a bad beginning to my work week. They have a pleasing, snappy crunch. They're just a little bit sweet and they satisfy every snack craving bone in my body.
And ... AND ... they are soooooooooooooo easy to make. Just four ingredients, a quick twirl in the oven, a toss now and then, and they're done. So easy. So good. Make them. You deserve them. You also deserve chocolate. Yup, that's right. Do it. With these snacks, I'm not even counting the days till Friday. Happy Tuesday.
Honey Mustard Pretzels
adapted from Country Cleaver
makes 5 cups
3 tablespoons of canola oil
2 tablespoons of honey
1/4 cup of honey dijon mustard
5 cups of pretzel twigs
1. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, honey and mustard. Add the pretzels and toss to evenly coat them in the mustard mixture.
2. Spread the pretzels out on a baking sheet and pop them into a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes. Toss every 7ish minutes. When they're done, they should be a dark, caramely colour and you should definitely smell them.
3. Let them cool (if you can) and store in an airtight container. Snack away!
