Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Sticks

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Sticks

I love a good snack recipe. Sure, there are plenty of readymade snacks available, but there’s something special about indulging in a treat that has a homemade touch. When I came across these Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Sticks, the first thing I thought of was the sweet smell of Auntie Anne’s cinnamon soft pretzels at the mall. It gets me every time. So, I knew if these pretzel sticks were at all similar to my favorite mall treat they were going to be a keeper. And they sure were!

You’ll start out this recipe by melting the butter and then letting it cool slightly. Next up, you’ll whisk an egg white and a little vanilla extract into the butter. The pretzels will get coated with the butter mixture and then sprinkled with a cinnamon and sugar dusting. The final step will be spreading the pretzels on a parchment-lined baking sheet and baking for about 15 minutes. Get ready for your kitchen to smell heavenly as they get all roasty-toasty! Now, the hardest part… letting the pretzels cool before digging in. Sure, you can go ahead and sneak a few, but they really are tastier once the sugary coating sets. It’s worth the wait!

INGREDIENTS :
  • 16oz bag of pretzel sticks
  • ¾ cup butter, melted
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 ¼ cup white sugar

PREPARATION :
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, melt the butter and then let cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Once butter has cooled, add the egg white and vanilla then mix until smooth.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the cinnamon, sugar, and cardamom (if using). Set aside.
  5. Add the pretzels to the large bowl and toss in the butter mixture until fully coated. Slowly sprinkle the sugar mixture over the pretzels and gently toss until completely coated.
  6. Transfer the pretzels to the prepared baking sheet and spread into an even layer.
  7. Bake for 16-18 minutes, stirring the pretzels half way through.
  8. Let pretzels cool before breaking apart and serving.
