When fall rolls around, I just want to enjoy everything pumpkin flavored. Call it basic if you must, but there’s no denying that pumpkin is an awesome flavor. The more I can enjoy of it, the better! Each year I make a double batch of these addictive Pumpkin Spice Pretzels to snack on. They’re so addictive and delicious – you must try them.
The kids even love these pretzels as an afternoon snack. My Husband likes to enjoy them while watching fall football and they’re great with a pumpkin beer. Just make a big batch in the beginning of the fall season and enjoy for weeks to come because they’ll last a long time in your pantry!
This recipe makes a bit batch of Pumpkin Spice Pretzels and it’s an easy recipe. It doesn’t take much skill and anyone can make these pretzels, regardless of kitchen experience. The end result is slightly salty, sweet and super crunchy. The only problem? The Pumpkin Spice Pretzels are addictive!
Looking for even more great snack recipes for fall? I’ve got some favorites that you can gift or keep in the pantry for occasions like game day or cocktail hour:
Pumpkin Spice Pretzels Recipe: The Addictive Fall Snack
You don’t have to be an expert chef to make this snack recipe. I promise that it’s super easy. There are so many different ways to fancy up plain pretzels, but this one has the nice sweet and salty combination. Just toss to coat the pretzels and bake for a little bit of time in the oven.
To make your Pumpkin Spice Pretzels, you’ll need a baking sheet that has the raised sides. For easy clean up, cover the baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Toss the foil after baking the pretzels and that’s your clean up!
You Pick How Much Pumpkin Flavor You Want
This recipe calls for one tablespoon of pumpkin spice, but you can definitely add more if you want (up to two tablespoons). The one tablespoon offers a slight pumpkin flavor without being overpowering.
It’s a hint of pumpkin spice. If you’re a HUGE pumpkin spice fan, then I would go for two tablespoons. Either way, you’re going to get the pumpkin flavor coming through.
When To Serve Pumpkin Spice Pretzels
These are awesome for Halloween parties, Thanksgiving cocktail time, after-school snacks or to munch on while watching fall football. They’re awesome with my Autumn Whiskey Apple Cider Punch. I make my pretzels the week after Labor Day to signal the beginning of fall. Then I can grab them out of the pantry whenever we’ve got a snack attack.
The pretzels also make a great gift! Place them in a seasonal decorative tin and put a bow on it for a gift. They’re much more unexpected than traditional cookies or pies that people usually receive in Thanksgiving. I love that the pretzels will last longer and not expire like baked goods.
How To Keep The Pumpkin Spice Pretzels Fresh
Once they’re baked and cooled, you can store any leftovers in an air-tight container. I use a gallon plastic bag that has a zip top. They’ll last for 4-6 weeks in your pantry without going bad. The sugar coating acts as a preservative too.
Do not freeze your pretzels. Once the pretzels are exposed to moisture, they will not keep the crisp texture and become soggy. Make a new batch of pretzels and avoid freezing them.
I love using the classic pretzel twists. If there’s another type of pretzel that you prefer, use that instead. I think the type of pretzel you use boils down to personal preference or what’s on sale. I love using a store brand of pretzels since you’re adding your own flavoring anyways.
If you want to use a sugar substitute, follow the directions on the brand of sugar substitute that you’re using. You can easily substitute granulated sugar for your preferred sugar substitute.
Lastly, if you don’t have honey to use, agave syrup works well too. The honey acts as a sweetener and binds the other ingredients to the pretzels.
