Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

When I was creating my list for my annual Christmas Goodie Boxes, I wanted to add something that wasn’t chocolate or a cookie. I was thinking hmmmm what is something that is both salty and sweet. I searched for a while and finally decided on trying a cinnamon sugar pretzel out. I had no idea something so easy could be so delicious. This quickly became one of the most enjoyed items of my goodie boxes and will from now on be a staple for Christmas! Plus this is one of the simplest recipes out there. It takes no time at all and is delicious – how do you get anything better than that?
