Butter Crunch Pretzels

Comment on this recipe

This is a great treat for any snacking occasion. Pretzels are both salty and sweet. Sometimes I add pecan halves after baking.

Ingredients

16 cups small pretzel twists
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon butter flavoring
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Instructions

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Place pretzels in a large roasting pan. Butter sides of a heavy saucepan. Combine brown sugar, butter and corn syrup in saucepan; stirring constantly, cook over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium and bring to a boil. Cook, without stirring, 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla, butter flavoring and baking soda. Syrup will foam. Pour syrup over pretzels and stir until pretzels are well coated. Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on greased aluminum foil to cool. Store in air tight container.
