Little Pretzel Smokies with mustard dipping sauce

 These were kind of a no-brainer decision with my family. Li’l Smokies wrapped in our favorite pretzel dough? There was no question.

But we didn’t know they’d be so good that they (the picky children that live at me house) would even try the honey mustard dipping sauce and love it!

We made these for a special movie night and set out these with other fun finger/dipping foods. These went faster than even the cookie bars that I made as a treat!

Super good and easy to put together, you should definitely make these for your next get-together.
