If you love the flavor of Snyders honey mustard and onion pretzels, you’ll really enjoy this simple recipe. It was one that we decided to try after finding some slightly stale pretzels in the back of the cupboard and truly not wanting to toss them into the garbage. It’s now one of our favorites!
One of the main reasons I’m drawn to copycat recipes is that oftentimes items are available regionally only. If you happen to travel frequently or if you move, the flavors and products that you crave aren’t always easy to find.
We started using this recipe when we lived in the upper areas of the midwest, where the nearest grocery store was about 2 hours away. The local gas station offered plain pretzels, so we thought we’d spruce them up a bit and try to reproduce the deliciousness of Snyders.
1 (12 oz). pkg sourdough hard pretzels
⅔ cup vegetable oil
3 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. yellow mustard
1 tsp. onion powder
Preheat oven 275F
Line a cookie/baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
In a medium bowl combine vegetable oil, honey, yellow mustard, and onion powder, whisking the ingredients together until well blended.
Place the pretzels in a ziplock-style bag, seal and gently break them into chunks. This is the part the kids will really enjoy helping with- Smashing pretzels! (Just wait, next week there will be a band call “Smashing Pretzels”!)
Double check to ensure that there aren’t any holes in the bag. If one, then pour the honey-mustard seasoning mixture over the pretzels, seal the bag and shake well to coat them all evenly.
Pour the pretzels onto the baking sheet and spread them out in an even layer.
Bake for 15 minutes, remove the pan from the oven, toss/turn all of the the pieces so they will cook evenly.
Return it to the oven for another 15 minutes.
Remove from oven, cool completely before transferring to an airtight container.
