Sweet and Crunchy Pretzels




Pretzels are a great snack to have.

They're so user friendly:  you can eat them plain, dip them, or transform them!

I've given you a recipe for a spicy pretzel but here's a treat for a sweet pretzel.

It's easy as can be and even your kids can help you make this snack.

I have seen variations of this recipe in Midwest Living, Taste of Home, and other easy-to-do recipe books.

Sweet and Crunchy Pretzels

1 (16 oz) bag pretzels (twists, butter squares, nuggets, sticks . . .whatever you prefer!)
⅔ cup vegetable oil
½ cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Pour pretzels into a roasting pan. In a medium sized bowl mix together vegetable oil, cinnamon and sugar. Pour over pretzels and stir to coat. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes, removing twice to stir.

Allow to cool before serving (although, the warm sugary pretzel sure is tasty -- wink, wink!)

Store in a ziplock bag.

**Once you've finished your bag of pretzels, any of the cinnamon/sugar mixture that remains in your bag, can be mixed into softened butter for a cinnamon/sugar spread to use on toast.
