Honey Mustard Pretzel Crunch for Game Day

Recipe: Honey Mustard Pretzel Crunch

Summary: Sweet, salty, savory, smoky, spicy and crunchy – this addictive snack has all the food groups covered, and is perfect for game day munching.


  • 4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 (12-ounce) packages pretzel pieces (honey mustard and onion flavor), such as Snyder’s of Hanover brand
  • 3 (6-ounce) can smoked almonds
  • 2 tablespoons Melissa’s Hatch Chile Powder (or your favorite chile powder)


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly mist 2 large baking sheets with cooking spray, or coat them with oil.
  2. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine butter and honey, then cover and heat in the microwave on medium-high until melted. Stir to blend.
  3. In a large bowl, combine pretzels, almonds and chile powder. Add the butter and honey mixture and mix well. Spread the pretzel mixture in a single layer on the baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Let the mixture cool, and then transfer to a serving bowl, toss and serve.
  5. Serves 6-8.

Pair this with ice-cold beer or a nice Pinot Grigio (Gallo Family Vineyards, anyone?).
