Candied nuts are such a favorite during the winter months, but we just made candied pretzels and oh my goodness they are good!!

Last year I made candied macadamia nuts and they were kind of awesome. In fact I think they were addicting which is always a good sign that a recipe turned out perfectly. Well this year I was going to make our candied nuts snack mix, which I’m also obsessed with, like a lot and I thought, dude (yes, I say dude a lot, it’s a problem) I wonder if you can candy pretzels.

Are Pretzels Gluten Free?

Even though pretzels aren’t traditionally thought of as a gluten free snack, they certainly can be!

You can easily find gluten free pretzels that are made with ingredients like rice flour, which don’t have any gluten.

Before you snack on these pretzels, make sure the package indicates that they truly are gluten free.

Will Pretzels Make a Dog Sick?

It’s not a good idea to share salty foods like chips or pretzels with your dog.

Eating too much salt can make your dog seriously thirsty.

Symptoms of too much salt include vomiting, diarrhea, depression, tremors, high temperature, and seizures.

Bringing Snacks into the Movie Theater

You can. Oh my goodness you can! I may have filled a bag with salty peanuts, these candied pretzels and craisins and stuffed the whole thing in my diaper bag for the movie theater. Is that bad? I always feel a little guilty, but it’s not that I’m bringing in anything I could have bought, and one of the boys Cade worked with in scouts a few years ago worked at a theater and said they could care less, so maybe it’s alright.

I have in fact walked in holding tupperware with cookies and water bottles and no one ever said anything. What are your thoughts?

Candied nuts are such a favorite during the winter months, but we just made candied pretzels and oh my goodness they are good!!

These pretzels are super duper easy to make. You’ll want to remember to whisk that egg white and water as quickly as you can for at least 30-60 seconds because you really want it to be foaming to coat the pretzels. You don’t have to use pumpkin pie spice, you could throw a little cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in instead, I’m just all about one stop shopping and pumpkin pie spice is that for baking.
