  • Preheat oven to 300F. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment. Combine ingredients for Gingerbread Spice Mix.
  • Place popcorn in a large wide bowl.
  • Stir sugar and water in a large saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves, 2 to 3 min. Increase heat to high and boil, without stirring, until mixture turns amber, 7 to 10 min. Remove from heat and stir in butter and pretzels. Pour over popcorn, stirring with a spatula. Spread in single layer on baking sheets and sprinkle with 2 tbsp of Gingerbread Spice Mix.
  • Bake in top and bottom thirds of oven, stirring and switching sheets halfway through, about 20 min.
