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.
