This will blow the skirt right up on your holiday snack mix. Who needs chex mix?
Last night I was really jonesin' for a cinnamon sugar pretzel from one of those places in the mall. Now, the mall isn't remotely near my house, and even if it were I simply can't eat one of those carbo-sugar-loaded pretzels. So here's what you need to do make these cinnamon sugar pretzels.
Melt 1 stick of butter. It probably doesn't matter if it's salted or not, but I used unsalted. Plus the pretzels are already salty.
Once the butter is melted, add about 4 tablespoons of sugar [I used white but you can use brown] and 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Stir together nicely and then stir in the pretzels. I did this in batches to make it easier. I used a 16-oz bag of regular pretzels. In a single layer, bake the pretzels at 250 for about 15 minutes, just to get the cinnamon-sugar to stick. That is, if you don't eat all the pretzels before you bake them. Before I put them in the oven I sprinkled extra sugar on top.
Maybe that was rude what I said about the chex mix. I think you could add these to it and give it some interest. Happy holiday eating!
