Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels
I truly love giving homemade DIY Gifts during the holidays which is probably not a surprise if you have been reading Tammilee Tips for a while. I just love sharing my love for baking with friends and family.
Plus these days there are so many cute gift containers available that make it so easy to package your homemade cinnamon pretzels. I was at the grocery store picking up a ton of last-minute things for John's Grandmother's 92nd birthday party this weekend and have to admit that I got super distracted by all the cute gift packages available.
I might have also bought a few more inflatable holiday animals for the front yard. I am sure our new neighbors think I have lost my mind when it comes to holiday inflatables. I just think it is so fun that you can now get inflatable narwhals and grinches.
Next year I should probably put out some classic decorations but so far this year all of our decorations are just a random eclectic mix of animals. It makes me giggle every time I pull up to the house.
Did you see all of the Holiday cookies and treats we have been sharing?
Tons of ideas for great homemade holiday treats your family, co-workers, neighbors will love! Or you can just bake them and enjoy them yourself too. This is a total no judgment zone!
4 Ingredients needed
- Vegetable oil
Equipment needed to make Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels
You don't need many things to make this recipe which I love!
Large Bowl - You want to use the largest bowl you can so you can keep the pretzels corralled inside of it. I tried making these with a medium-size bowl the first time and ended up with pretzels falling over the top and all over the counter.
Parchment paper - This will help make it easier to remove the pretzels after they have baked
Baking sheet with sides - Trust me you do not want to put these on a flat cookie sheet and try to pull them out of the oven while the pan is hot and you are trying to balance the cookie sheet so they don't slide off the end.

I make these every Christmas and put them in cute little Christmas tins for my family. So easy to make and sooo delicious! I use coconut oil for better taste!
Just took them out of the oven. Sooooo good.
Can I substitute coconut oil for the vegetable oil?
I used salted butter instead of oil and they were delicious! I also used Snyder's brand Itty Bitty pretzels-cute!
These are amazing and so easy to make!
I, too, would like to know what size bag of pretzels to use. So many recipes are published and the sizes are left out or it doesn't say how many it serves. This sounds like a delightful recipe and I can't wait to try it.
These are the best! Have made 3 batches already! Yummy! Put them in cute bags with a cute sticker!
Another tip is to put pretzels in a zip lock bag and pour cinnamon, sugar and oil mixture into bag and shake so that all are coated. I had a hard time stirring the pretzels in a bowl without them jumping out.... Lol. So this was my cheater. Lol.
Michelle, I love this tip! What a great idea! Thank you for sharing!
I'd like to know the size of the bag of pretzels you used please?
Your directions are misleading.
If I combine the oil, connamon, and sugar and pour over the pretzels......
What sugar and cinnamon are left to pour on after??????
I was confused by that comment too, but I think she meant anything left in the bowl to scrape it over the pretzels. I made these, they're very good!
