Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

It’s kind of a funny story how I decided to make these pretzels. I had just bought a bag of pretzels for a different recipe. These cute little Reindeer Rice Krispies Treats needed some antlers! I only used about 20 pretzels for that recipe, so I had a huge bag left.

But let’s face it, plain old pretzels are kind of boring.  And the clock was ticking … only 30 minutes until my free time (aka daughter’s nap time) was over! So I needed something quick, easy and using ingredients I already had. The result?

The World’s Easiest and Most Delicious Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Twists

The recipe is very easy and straightforward. Just a couple tidbits I wanted to share that might help you out.

  • When you combine your oil, sugar and cinnamon, the consistency will be very runny. That’s just the way you want it!
  •  Toss your pretzels right in that runny mixture and then pour any excess over the top as shown in the video below.  It’s at this point when you’ll start realizing how glad you are you made this recipe!
  • As the pretzels bake, the sugar in the coating will start to crystallize and you’ll begin to see a nice crumbly coating form.
  • It’s this point your kitchen will begin to smell amazing and you’ll save this recipe to Pinterest so you can make it again and again!

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels
Author: The Three Snackateers
  • 1 bag pretzels
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp cinnamon
  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.

  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  3. In a large bowl, combine vegetable oil, sugar and cinnamon.

  4. Add about half the pretzels to the bowl. Stir well to make sure all pretzels are coated. 

  5. Carefully transfer the first batch of pretzels to the cookie sheet, gently letting any excess coating drip back into the bowl.

  6. Add the rest of the pretzels to the bowl and coat well. Then transfer to the cookie sheet.

  7. Spread pretzels into an even layer. It's okay if some overlap. 

  8. Pour any remaining mixture from the bowl over the top of the pretzels, making sure they are evenly coated.

  9. Bake the pretzels for a total of 30 minutes. Gently stir the pretzels around every 10 minutes.

  10. ENJOY!

About The Author


Confession: I’m obsessed with snacks. I have been for as long as I can remember. Ask anyone that knows me for a fun fact and the word ‘cupcake’ will probably come up. I’m known to keep sprinkles in my purse because you never know when the occasion may call for them. I always look at the dessert menu before ordering dinner. For fun I love to spend hours in the grocery stores scouting new and interesting foods. I love baking, but hate cooking. And I’m so lucky that my husband and little girl love sweets as much as I do!
