Spicy Buffalo Pretzels

  • Author: Meghan Yager
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 6 cups 1x


When your next snack attack strikes, load up on a couple of handfuls of spicy buffalo pretzels. They’re perfect for game day!


  • 1/2 cup hot sauce (I use Frank’s Red Hot)
  • 1/2 cup butter (or dairy-free substitute such as Earth Balance)
  • 1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce (I use Annie’s Homegrown vegan worcestershire)
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 pound bag of pretzels, regular salted or gluten free


  1. Preheat oven to 300˚F. Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place hot sauce and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, and stir until butter is melted. Add the worcestershire and seasonings. Remove from heat.
  3. Place pretzels in a large bowl. Pour hot sauce mixture over the pretzels. Use tongs to toss to coat evenly.
  4. Spread pretzels out on the baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring well every 10 minutes to prevent burning.
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool on pan. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container for up to three days.
