Bacon Pretzels

Credit: Creative Culinary


  • 1 package of regular bacon – hickory, maple, etc.
  • 2 cups Brown Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp Red Chili Powder
  • Dash or two (or three!) Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Package Pretzel Rods


    1. Break the pretzels in half for appetizer bites. If you halve the pretzel, halve the bacon slices too.
    2. Mix the brown sugar, chili powder & cayenne together and spread out on a large flat dish.
    3. Coat each strip of bacon on both sides with the brown sugar mixture.
    4. Wrap the bacon around the pretzel.
    5. Place the delicious treat on a wire rack placed on top of a baking sheet or roasting pan; I try to make sure that the tail end of the bacon I just wrapped is on the bottom to try and avoid having it ‘unwrap’ during cooking.
    6. Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes or until bacon cooks and appears crisp.
IMPORTANT: Let cool on wire rack and rearrange occasionally while cooling so they don’t stick to rack. Do not put these on paper towels; they are sticky!
