Reviews for Cayenne Pretzels
"These are Awesome made as is. I made them for a party last night and everyone raved about them and they want the recipe."
"These look like normal pretzels and then give the mouth a wonderful suprize!"
"These are great- and addicting. Nice flavor, and you can control the "heat" bu adjusting the cayenne pepper. Be sure to bake all the way, or an extra 10 min if not all the seasoning is absorbed. At Christmas, I make these using pretzel logs and package them as gifts. Super easy."
