Hi all! Hope you had a great weekend….We celebrated the season with our college friends and got caught up. Yesterday was the annual cookie exchange….which is one of my kiddos favorite traditions. I am trying to get a post up to share this week to share some things I have been working on inside….but it seem there aren’t enough hours in the day this time of year….soon enough:) For now…here is a great neighbor or teacher gift to put together this week….:)
It is always a hard decision for me… pass the Auntie Anne’s shop at the mall….do I get the original that’s just good as sin in butter and salt? Or do I go for the sweet and crunchy cinnamon sugar pretzel? Sometimes it takes me at least 5 minutes to really make up my mind. Just me?
So I decided to mix together some of my favorite sweet spices….toss them onto some pretzels and give them as favors this year for Thanksgiving. This would be a great little addition to a teacher gift or maybe a little something for your neighbors and friends for the holidays.
The recipe really is not a recipe it is so easy. Four basic ingredients: pretzels, vegetable oil, cinnamon and sugar. Easy and they are so good! Just the right amount of sweet and salty.
- 1 lb bag small pretzels
- ⅔ C vegetable oil
- 1 T cinnamon
- ½ C sugar
- Heat oven 300
- Combine oil, sugar and cinnamon.
- Pour pretzels in large roasting pan.
- Pour cinnamon mixture on top and combine.
- Bake 30 minutes.
- Let cool on wax paper.
- Makes 8-10 bag fulls
- Will keep for a week or so.
Bake some up….people will think you went to way more trouble then you actually did:)
