Twice-Baked Snack Goods

A favorite way of enjoying my store-bought matchstick pretzels is to twice bake them in my oven at home. You place them on a cookie sheet in an oven @375°F till the pretzels have a noticeably darker golden color.

In my house we call these the "burnt pretzels." The flavor from baking them twice is nuttier, crunchier and lighter than the original form and at this point, a preferred method of consumption.

I was wondering if anyone else does this — or for that matter, does it with any other snack item? Maybe pretzel goldfish or tortilla chips? Pita chips maybe? Other kinds of pretzels?
