Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Pieces

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels aka Churro Pretzels. Simple and so addictive!

These Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Pieces or Churro Pretzels are insanely addictive. Salty, sweet and bite sized…perfect for snacking!

Snacks…do  you do them?

I do.

Too often.

Honestly, I totally need to lay off the snacks. The cold weather elastic pants have put me in a bit of a predicament.

 

I indulged in far too many  in-between meal snacks from the months of October through May. Because that’s holiday season, right? Halloween to Cinco de Mayo?

So, there’s a little more of “me” lately, if you catch my drift.

I am just going to need about 6 weeks of focus to get back in my shorts. Starting tomorrow.

Y’all, pray for me.

Anyhow, until then, I think I will go out with a bang with these Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Pieces, aka Churro Pretzels…which are the perfect snack any day of the year.

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels...these are so simple!

And these are super easy, which is importanté on Cinco de Mayo. I don’t know why, but it is.

Just grab some of those big sourdough pretzels…the hard ones…

And break them into pieces. You HAVE to do them with the pieces, so you have more surface area for the oil and butter and sugar and cinnamon to soak into…

So yeah, break them up.

Now cover it and let it sit. Overnight is best.

If you need to sprinkle it with a little more cinnamon sugar the next day, I encourage it, but not necessary!!

And totally eat it up.

Churro Pretzels.. Just a few ingredients to a totally addictive treat!

Now back to my mission of a snack-free month… sigh.

  1. You can’t give up on the snacks, especially if they’re like this! Makes life worth living, you know?
    These look completely addictive. Yay!

  2. I would snack on these till the cows came home! Or until my pants stopped fitting…which would probably come first. But it would be so worth it.

    This is a great substitute for Snyder’s Sweet and Salty Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Pieces which have sadly been discontinued. I reduced the oil to 1/4 cup and it was still delicious.
