I found this recipe in the November/December Midwest Living magazine and knew my family would love it. I was right. They devoured it.

This is all you need:

2/3 Cup Vegetable Oil

1/2 Cup Sugar

2 teaspoons ground Cinnamon

1 16-ounce package Small Pretzels

Ammon pulled this slip out of the Thankful Jar. Perfect for today since I was going to make this yummy treat for my family anyway. I doubled the recipe so I’d have enough to give away.

Hubby bought the pretzels yesterday. I forgot to tell him to buy small pretzels, so he bought the regular ones which turned out just fine anyway.

In a large roasting pan combine Vegetable oil


and Cinnamon.

Stir together,

then add the pretzels and toss well to coat with cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Bake, uncovered, in a 300 degree oven for 30 minutes.

Stir twice during cooking time. Emilee helped with the stirring.

Spread on waxed paper to cool.

And that’s it. We packaged the Cinnamon Pretzels in a clear bag, made a flower out of a kitchen towel then pinned it to the ribbon on the front of the bag.

They would also make great neighbor gifts for Christmas.

Or just store them in an air tight container and eat them yourself (you should probably share them with your family).

YUM! I know I would love these! I’m more of a sugar person than salt so these would be fabulous!

I am very excited about these! I am looking for an inexpensive Christmas food idea for my three year old and I to do together. We are going to give them as gifts this year to many people, and this will be soooo perfect! Going to try them soon, thanks :D

BEST pretzels ever! I baked them flat on a cookie sheet for 10 mins rather than a roasting pot. Thank you for the new recipe addition to my holiday line up! Can’t wait to give these out as gifts!

This is just what I was looking for. Thank you for posting this!!!!!

These are delicious! I didn’t have any vegetable oil, so I used real butter instead. I also used brown sugar in place of the white sugar…wow! It was caramelized and yummy, reminicisent of caramel popcorn butter better!
