Super Bowl Munchies: Cinnamon Pretzels

Want a pretzel that tastes like a mini doughnut?!  

I know.  They're good.  And, they really do have that mini doughnut taste.  I like the combo of the sweet and salty - oh my.  

These would be a great addition to a Super Bowl party spread; offering a hint of something sweet amidst the cheesy, spicy, gooey dishes that are bound to make an appearance.  

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels - Adapted from the Baking Junkie

1-2 (16oz) bag of fat-free pretzel twists
1/8 C oil; I used olive oil
1/3 C sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

Begin by pouring the pretzels into a large bowl.

When I made the recipe, I combined the cinnamon and sugar with the olive oil as the original recipe suggested.  

Only problem was... when I cut down the amount of oil, I ended up with globs of cinnamon/sugar/oil.  Gross.  

After enough stirring, I was able to make this work; but I have different recommendations for you.  First, drizzle the olive oil over the pretzels and stir to coat.  

Then, mix together the cinnamon and sugar.  

Sprinkle this mixture over the lightly-oiled pretzels.  

Bake the pretzels at 300 degrees for 30-40 minutes; stir every 10 minutes.  

Allow the pretzels to cool, and then serve.
