Mustard Pretzel Dip

This time of year feels like snacking weather to me.  You know, when it starts getting chilly outside.  All I want to do is cuddle up inside of blankets on the couch, and snack to my hearts content.  When I do all that cuddling & snacking (cudacking?), it makes me feel a little bit better about it when it’s pretzels.

However, pretzels get kind of boring on their own.  You feel me with this?  They just do.  That’s why I must make my favorite dip for them to go along.  The dip is mustard based, and I prefer use Colman’s because of the spicy kick it gives.  Otherwise, you’d have to use horseradish to give it that kick – and I’m all for simplified ingredients in recipes.

Not only do I like to dip my pretzels in this – but here’s a fantastic appetizer idea for you.  Spread just a little on a piece of ham, fold it into a small square or triangle – and then skewer a pretzel through the middle.  They’re delicious!
