Chocolate Cinnamon Pretzels

pretzel

This recipe was a Pineterst find. They turned out great and would be perfect holiday party snack! The original recipe called for white chocolate (which I hate) So I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and added some creamy peanut butter to the melted chocolate… I had to bag them up before I ate them all they were so tasty! This is the first of many blogs dedicated to Christmas/Holiday recipe ideas. Sign up to get my emails and I will be randomly selecting one of my followers to receive a goody bag with some of the holiday cookies and sweets I’ll be blogging on! Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 16ounce bag of pretzels (I took the recipes advice and got the checkered pretzels so they would catch more chocolate)
  • 2/3 cup oil (I used vegetable)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon/sugar mixture for sprinkling
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or white chocolate if you prefer)
  • 1 Tablespoon creamy peanut butter (optional)

Directions

  1. In a small bowl whisk together oil, sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Pour bag of pretzels into microwave safe bowl and pour sugar mixture over them. Mix with your hands or use another bowl to pour mixture back and forth so all the pretzels get coated with the mixture.
  3. Microwave for 1 minute, remove and stir. Microwave another 45 seconds- 1 minute make sure the pretzels are warm.
  4. Spread pretzels evenly on to two cookie sheets covered with parchment paper and generously sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture while the pretzels are still warm.
  5. Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in a double boiler or in a sauce pan on low heat while constantly stirring, making sure not to burn the chocolate. Drizzle the chocolate over the cooled pretzels.
  6. I popped the whole cookie sheet in the freezer for 5 minutes to make sure the chocolate was hard before putting in air tight containers or decorative baggies.

  1. You had me till the peanut butter, anaphalaxis not good, but I have sunbutter so I can still have some! Yeah! Love your blog,

  2. You could leave the nut butter out completely and it would still be delicious! The original recipe did not call for peanut butter but I love peanut butter cups and salty sweet combinations!
