Carole's Story

Sugary cinnamon meets salty pretzels in this super easy snack mix.

Who would have delish. I just finished making a batch! Recipe didn't call for this, but, I decided to drizzle a little white chocolate on some and milk chocolate on the others. Sweet, salty, and chocolatey..with a crunch! YUM...

NOTE: I made this with the microwave method..worked like a charm!!!

Picture posted is my finished product made on 12/17


2/3 c
vegetable oil
1/2 c
2 tsp
16 0unce bag of tiny pretzels twists
melted milk chocolate or white chocolate..for drizzling, recipe doesn't call for this, i chose to add as an option.

Directions Step-By-Step

*OVEN directions: In a large roasting pan, stir together vegetable oil, sugar and cinnamon. Add the pretzels; toss well to coat with cinnamon-sugar. Bake, uncovered, in a 300 degree oven for 30 minutes, stirring twice. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in an airtight container. Makes 12 cups
**MICROWAVE directions: In a very large bowl, stir together vegetable oil, sugar and cinnamon. Add pretzels; toss well to coat with cinnamon-sugar. Place half of the pretzel mixture in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 100% power (high) for 3 minutes, stirring every minute. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Repeat with the remaining pretzel mixture.
In making this for the first time today. It says to mix the oil, sugar and cinnamon in the bowl or baking pan first..I suggest drizzling it onto it in layers over the pretzels. Keep in mind this has oil in it wants to flow to the bottom of the pan or bowl...just keep stirring with a rubber spatula. Some will still be at the bottom once you have microwaved them or baked them in the oven...stir before spreading them out on waxed paper..and then what liquid is left in the pan or bowl..drizzle over warm pretzels. Once they cool completely..the mixture will adhere to the pretzel. Also, don't double the recipe to put on the pretzels, at first I thought maybe I needed more of the liquid as I was preparing them to go into the microwave..nope, this is plenty!!

As for drizzling the melted chocolate..I added this..only because I love chocolate coated pretzels, if you don't want too, then leave them as is. When doing sure to let the chocolate set up well before placing them in a airtight container. Spread them out as much as you can on the waxed paper let them really is a nice little bonus on this little treat. Some of the chocolate wants to break off when you pick them up off the waxed paper, but just stick it in the bag or tin you store them me it will get eaten!!! ENJOY..
