Spicy Sweet Pretzel Mix

This was a quick and tasty snack mix. We thought the addition of chocolate 'made the dish'. Next time I will try this with pretzel twists since I think it would be easier to eat. This doesn't make a big batch, so you WILL need to double the recipe!

2 c. thin pretzel sticks
1 c. almonds
2 T. unsalted butter
2 T. dark-brown sugar
1/8 t. cayenne pepper
1/2 c M and M's(Beth's addition)

1. Preheat oven to 300-degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, toss together pretzels and almonds.

2. In a small saucepan, bring butter, sugar, cayenne, and 1 T. water to a boil, stirring constantly. Pour over pretzel mixture in bowl; gently toss to combine.

3. Spread pretzel mixture in a single layer on prepared sheet. Bake until almonds are crisp, about 20 minutes, toss occasionally. Cool on sheet before serving.   Add M and M's after mixture is cool.
