These pretzels are a perfect sweet and spicy snack or a tasty treat for a holiday party, because what? It’s October!

Ingredients: About 50 pretzels

  • 2 cups of ‘grid’ pretzels
  • 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 Tablespoon of cayenne
  • 1 Tablespoon of nutmeg
  • 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon of butter


  • Cut parchment paper or waxed paper and place on a sheet pan
  • Place two cups of water into a saucepan and then place a glass bowl on top of that, this is called a double broiler. It will melt your chocolate slowly. The water should be at a simmer.
  • Place the chocolate and butter into the glass bowl
  • Stir constantly until chocolate is silky and melted
  • Mix spices together, cinnamon nutmeg and cayenne
  • Place spices into a sifter, set aside
  • Using tongs or chopsticks, dip the pretzels in the chocolate allowing excess to drip off
  • Place on the parchment or wax paper
  • Sprinkle with spices, while the pretzels are still freshly dipped, so that the spices will stick.
  • Continue until all of the pretzels are finished
  • Place in the refrigerator until the chocolate hardens
  • Enjoy this sweet spicy snack, try not to eat the whole bowl!
