Sweet and salty is a classic combination. These Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels sticks combine the flavors you love with an easy to make snack.

Cinnamon and Sugar Pretzels

My daughter has a crazy obsession with cinnamon. If it’s got cinnamon in it she’ll eat it. In fact, at the car wash today, when the guy asked what scent we’d like in the car, she asked if they had cinnamon. Yeah, she’s that obsessed.

Cinnamon Pretzels

After we made the Ranch Pretzels a couple of weeks ago, I knew that a sweet and salty version definitely was worth trying, since it is probably my all time favorite flavor combination. The fact that they are crazy easy to make is helpful too.

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

They are great when you’re craving something sweet, and perfect for packing in lunches or taking along on a road trip. And if you have a little one who loves cinnamon like mine does, you have to try this recipe! The method is similar to Chex Mix, using melted butter mixed with seasonings, or in this case, cinnamon and sugar, then baked at a low temperature in the oven. I have made chex mix in the microwave, but I haven’t tried it with these pretzels. If you try it, be sure to come back and let  us know how it turns out!

    After following the recipe, I have a suggestion. Most of the sugar/butter was on the bottom of the baking pan and not attached to the pretzels.

    * Melt 1/2 C butter, pour over the pretzels and stir to coat. In a small mixing bowl, combine granulated sugar 2 tsp. Ground cinnamon. Sprinkle sugar mixture over the pretzels and stir until all pretzels are coated with the mixture. Continue to baking as directed in the recipe.

    I’ve been making these for years using coconut oil instead of butter. This year the sugar has ended up in the botyom of the bag instead of sticking to the pretzels. Any thoughts on why, or what to do to make it stick? 🤷‍♀️💜

    1. Kristin Maxwell says:

      Without being there I can’t say what the problem might be. Issues could anything from brands used to the temperature of the oven.

  3. Ava Patrice Hecht says:

    I had these pretzels at a party recently and loved them. But I would add more butter to the recipe.
    The recommended amount I found did not coat the 1 pound bag very well.

      Love the feedback Ava! Thanks for stopping by.
