When I first saw this recipe I said to myself, "How can this be bad?"...and you know what? It can't be bad...it's absolutely delicious! You just can't go wrong with bacon wrapped around a pretzel rod! And this is not just bacon! It's bacon coated with brown sugar, chili powder and cayenne pepper!
|Ready for the oven|
As the bacon cooks it soaks into the pretzel rod, making it slightly soft! The sugar coating tastes like a really good smoky/sweet barbecue sauce! This is such a unique, fun, snack! I'll be serving these at my next party!
|Bacon Wrapped Pretzels|
1 lb. of bacon - not thick sliced
4 inch pretzel rods - I used unsalted
2 cups brown sugar
3-4 Tbls chili powder
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
Cut the bacon slices in half.
Mix together the brown sugar, chili powder and cayenne pepper
and then spread it out on a flat dish.
Coat each strip of bacon on both sides in the sugar mixture.
Wrap the bacon around each pretzel rod.
Then place them on a wire rack on top of a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes or until bacon appears slightly crisp.
