Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

This is a quick and easy snack that is sure to satisfy any sweet, salty and crunchy craving you may have.

This recipe came from my aunt, and I think she said she got it from a guest that stayed at their motel years ago. All I know is that it tastes great!

This batch was made with Christmas-shaped pretzels. They make a great little food gift for friends, neighbors, teachers, etc.

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

2/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1-lb. bag of small pretzels

Mix together oil, sugar and cinnamon. Pour pretzels into a large, microwave-safe bowl. Pour oil mixture over the pretzels and stir to coat.

Cook in microwave for 3 minutes, stirring every minute, making sure to incorporate any of the oil mixture that collects at the bottom of the bowl. Spread pretzels out on cookie sheets to cool.

Tip: If you're having a hard time incorporating all of the oil mixture when you stir the pretzels, just pour the pretzels into a second bowl and scrape the oil mixture off the bottom of the first bowl and stir into the pretzels.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. I have tried making this one and it was really good. My little kid loved it and was asking me to make some more. Great pics too. It went really well with a hot cup of coffee made from my single cup coffee machine Kudos!
