These Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Pieces or Churro Pretzels are insanely addictive. Salty, sweet and bite sized…perfect for snacking!
Snacks…do you do them?
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.
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.
And mix a little melted butter and oil together and pour over the pretzels.
Stir that up…
Grab some sugar…
And mix it together.
And sprinkle this all over your pretzels.
And stir it all up until everything is coated.
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.
Now back to my mission of a snack-free month… sigh.
