snack attack: spicy-sweet glazed pretzels and nuts

I hope everyone had the most delightful of holidays and let’s all ring in the new year with good cheer. Hello, 2007! Now before we all batten down the hatches with resolutions, let’s continue the festive snacks just a bit longer. I came by this recipe from David Lebovitz via Not Martha and I can truly say that this is the best holiday snack ever. Sweet and salty and spicy! A treat that is easy to make and will make your guests love you even more. I made this for a Boxing Day snack for friends and it got rave reviews. I used only pretzels and a small amount of almonds since I was out of mixed nuts but if you’ve spent all your cash on booze and don’t want to spring any more $$$ for fancy nuts, you can certainly buy a cheap bag of pretzels and still ring in the new year with a tasty snack. Tasty delicious!

    Ditto. I used cashews and it’s addictive. Hope you have a great New Year Kickpleat!

    These sound delicious, and you could probably take these in about a hundred different spice directions.
    Thanks for the recipe, and have a very Happy New Year! I am such a huge fan of your blog!
