  • 12 cups miniature pretzels
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


  1. Place pretzels in a greased roasting pan. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter and corn syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla and baking soda (mixture will foam). Pour over pretzels and mix well.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 200° for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in an airtight container.
