Help me doctor up my pretzel bites?

Bought a bag of pretzel bites. Keep thinking they'd be good with a mustard glaze and baked. So mustard plus what?

    Worstershire sauce (sp?) and season salt such as Lawrys.

      This + melted butter = Chex mix seasoning, which I think would be awesome on pretzels...

      Horseradish or Cayenne Pepper.

        Thank you both. Haven't gotten around to it yet.

        Butter, dry mustard, cayenne, and granulated garlic. Maybe even some honey.

          I liked dipping the pretzels in cream cheese. Adding some zaat'ar to that worked well too.

            I'm almost too embarrassed to admit this, but I mixed up dijon, country-style dijon, olive oil, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. It was nasty! Should have went more the Chex mix route. Oh well. Thanks for all the suggestions.

            (Hanging head in shame.)

              What's wrong with that? Sounds tasty! I have a maple syrup and mustard pecan recipe that is really yum...

                I must have had the proportions wrong. I committed the cardinal sin in that I actually did taste the mixture before adding it to the pretzels. Wasn't happy with it but thought it would get better once baked. Duh.

                  We live and learn! I might have left out the olive oil, and maybe you used too much mustard? I like the cayenne idea; I think I'll add it to my pecans next time...

              I found honey mustard powder at the "Amish" store at farmer's market. I do variation on Chex mix... but much more butter and seasoning. Melted butter, liberal amount of worcestershire & seasoning salt. Drizzle over pretzels, cheezits, nuts, whatever... and toss well till coated. Into 350 oven for probably about 30 minutes... tossed every 10. When mix comes out of oven & while still HOT, I liberally sprinkle with honey/mustard powder. Haven't seen it in a while, but one of the companies that make packets of seasonings (like mcCormick or Lowery) made a honey/mustard mix to shake/bake chicken in.
