Cinnamon-Sugar Pretzels

Have I ever mentioned how much I really, really LIKE cinnamon and sugar? It’s a fairly intense obsession of mine. Somewhere between the passionate love I have for frozen grapes and the strong like I have for roasted almonds, that’s where the cinnamon-sugar obsession resides. 🙂 I have a container of cinnamon-sugar mixed up and at the ready in my cupboard at all times because I have apparently passed down this obsession to my kids. (Is obsessiveness hereditary? It must be.)

So needless to say, when I saw this idea for Cinnamon-Sugar Pretzels at Midwest Living I was completely….obsessed. 😉  It was one of those things where you see it and you immediately go to your kitchen and make it. Not only because it sounds SO GOOD, but because you already have everything on hand! I love when that happens….the best of both worlds!

I actually ended up making TWO batches. One gluten-free made with Glutino Gluten Free Pretzels and one traditional made with Rold Gold Classic Thin Pretzels. The gluten-free pretzels are pretty pricey, so I don’t buy those for the entire household. (Note to self…learn to make gluten-free pretzels!)

As you can see, it’s not a very difficult recipe to master. 🙂  The most “difficult” thing about it is tossing the pretzels twice during the 30 minutes baking time. But if you are like me and love SALTY and SWEET together, this recipe is worth the effort!

Cinnamon-Sugar Pretzels

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 package pretzel twists (large or small work, I made both)

Directions

Spread pretzels out on a large baking sheet. Combine oil, sugar and cinnamon and pour over pretzels. Toss well to combine. Bake, uncovered, in a 300 degree F oven for 30 minutes, stirring twice. Allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.

After I recovered from the frenzy that overtook me when I discovered these sweet and salty delights….I realized these would make a great food gift!  For Christmas or ANYTIME!

And I had just the bags to put them in. I bought a BUNCH of little brown kraft bags online quite awhile ago. I think I bought them on Etsy. But you can find them lots of places, like your local craft store and, of course, Amazon.com.
