Football season is here! These are my favorite game day snack and they’re perfect for tailgating as well! I like to use Wege Broken Sourdough Pretzels for this recipe, but if you can’t get them any other sourdough pretzels will also work. This recipe uses quite a bit of coconut oil. While I wouldn’t recommend always using coconut oil due to its high saturated fat content, using it on occassion is totally acceptable. Coconut oil contains medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) which increases absorption of these fats. There are many other believed benefits to using coconut oil, but I prefer olive oil for most of my cooking. Coconut oil helps make this recipe so delicious. Try not to get addicted to these pretzels!
