Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a mixing bowl, stir together yeast, water, melted butter, sugar and Mayan Sea Salt. Set aside until foam forms on the surface, about 10 min. Mix in flour and knead until smooth. Pinch dough into 1-inch size pieces and roll pieces into 1/4- to 1/2-thick ropes about 4 to 6 inches in length. Lay ropes on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Brush ropes with egg wash and sprinkle with Maldon Sea Salt. Bake for 15 min. or until golden brown. Set aside until pretzels are cool enough to touch, 5 to 10 min. Reduce oven to 250 degrees. Break pretzels into 1/2- to 1-inch pieces and place in a large bowl. Toss with 4 Tbsp. Buffalo Wing Dry Sauce and 1/2 cup of oil until pretzel pieces are fully coated. Place pieces back on the cookie sheet and bake for 30 to 40 min. until crispy, stirring halfway through. Remove from oven, transfer back into the large bowl and toss with remaining 1 Tbsp. oil and 2 Tbsp. Buffalo Wing Dry Sauce. These will stay good for weeks in an airtight container.
