I'm a fanatic for salty-sweet. And not only does this recipe hit the spot, but it's rather inexpensive to make as well.
1/4 C brown sugar
2 Tbs margarine
1 Tbs honey
1 Tbs light corn syrup
1/8 tsp baking soda
12-ounce bag of pretzels
Combine brown sugar, margarine, honey, and corn syrup in a microwave-safe bowl. (It will boil up, so make sure the bowl is at least 2 cups.) Microwave on high for about a minute (stir it once at about 30 seconds) until it's boiling hard.
Microwave on high for another minute.
Stir baking soda into boiling mixture.
Place pretzels in a 2 or 3-quart microwave-safe bowl, and pour the syrup over the pretzels.
Microwave the coated pretzels on 50% power, uncovered for 3-4 minutes, stirring twice.
Spread onto cookie sheets or counter top to cool.
