This makes a fabulous take-along for a Christmas gathering. Or, in my case, a Halloween one! Or, a Sunday-afternoon-sit-on-the-couch-gathering-of-one. 🙂 Many thanks to Erika Beth over at Life’s Too Short to Skip Dessert for this fantastic recipe!
1 bag (16 oz.) pretzels (I used snaps, mini-twists are great too!)
2/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Place pretzels in large roasting pan. In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Pour over pretzels and stir to coat. Bake in oven for 30 minutes, removing every 10 minutes to stir.
- The stirring is important. When you first pour the mixture over the pretzels it may seem like there is too much liquid. But the coating “bakes” right onto the pretzels and there’s no liquid left after the oven time! The stirring allows the coating to bake onto every pretzel, not just those on the bottom of the roasting pan.
