Football Season Snacking: Buffalo Wing Pretzel Recipe

Buffalo Wings and pretzels are two classic football season finger foods.  Here I've combined the best of both -- the tangy, spicy, finger lickin' flavor of traditional wing sauce and the satisfying crunch of pretzel sticks -- no napkins required! Serve with blue cheese dip and celery sticks.   Score a touchdown with this easy, crowd-pleasing snack at your next football or tailgate party!

Buffalo Wing Pretzels

Prep Time:  10 minutes
Cook Time:  30 minutes
Makes:  15 ounces (approx. 8 servings)

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons kosher salt 
pinch cayenne pepper
1 15-oz. bag pretzel sticks
celery sticks and blue cheese dressing (optional)

Step 1:  Preheat oven to 300° F.  In a small saucepan over low heat, melt butter, wing sauce and soy sauce, stirring constantly.  Stir in the dry seasonings and cook over low heat for 5 minutes.

Step 2:  Place pretzels in a large bowl.  Drizzle sauce mixture over the pretzels and stir to evenly distribute and coat.

Step 3:  Spread pretzels out on a large ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Pretzels will crisp-up after 10 minutes out of the oven.  Store in an airtight container until ready to serve.  Serve with blue cheese dressing and celery sticks.

  1. Brilliant idea!! These sound amazing, Jenn! Can't wait to try them.

  2. I love buffalo pretzels! I just made your recipe! Very good, but a bit salty for me. Next batch I'm going to cut the soy sauce and salt.
