How to make Hard Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

  4. Place in oven for 30 minutes, flipping pretzels every 8-10 minutes until done (So both sides can get roasted and toasted). They are HOT HOT HOT when they come out of the oven, so be careful.

Drizzle and Decorate

While cinnamon sugar-coated pretzels are a sweet and salty snack that you will love to eat on your own, they are also a perfect base for the chocolate drizzle.

Simply use melting chocolate of any flavor and drizzle on in stripes and let set.

Use chocolate drizzle as a sticky base for colored sprinkles. This is a great variation for holidays and fun, colorful seasonal sprinkles.
