"What a yummy and simple to make snack! Beware, they're addicting!! It's important to keep stirring them as they cool because they will stick if you don't."

"These are excellent - a healthy snack, and people are always surprised at the tasty coating, it is nice and sweet with a slightly hot afterbite. I dont usually like anything hot but these are just perfect! I store mine in the freezer and they stay fresh for ages."

"This was a nice change from the average pretzel. I liked the coating on them. I might make them once in awhile but it didn't "wow" me enough to make it often."

"I don't know if the temperature or timing is wrong on this recipe but my pretzels looked like and tasted like they were starting to burn. Even the lighter colored pretzels were nasty. I'll stick with my spiced nuts next time around. A waste of time and money during the holiday season!"

"These are so tasty and simple. I make them every holiday and my friends gobble them up. I don't have a wire rack, so I just cool them in the pan...stirring like the recipe says and they turn out fine."
