I have never been a huge fan of salty soft pretzels, but the guys in my family love them. My hubby often will buy a warm pretzel as a treat when we're out and about at the mall or running errands. But it can get expensive to buy them individually at snack stands. When he was at a football game just recently, they were asking $.50 just for a small container of cheese sauce to go with a $3.50 pretzel. Youch!
Luckily, there's an easy more wallet-friendly way to get that warm pretzel goodness right at home with SUPERPRETZEL. J and J Snack foods has made a delicious addition to their pretzel line: SuperPretzel Sweet Cinnamon.
These come in a box of 6 so it easily feeds the four of us. Definitely a plus for a mom on a budget!
As I said, I don't usually eat pretzels. I don't like the saltiness of them. But when I heard that these had cinnamon, I figured I'd give them a try along with the guys.
These are really simple to prepare. Take them out of the freezer and either bake them in your toaster oven or regular oven at 400 for 5-6 minutes. (You can microwave them too but I prefer them baked because I like the outside crisper) You can moisten them with a little water or use a spray butter/margarine. Then sprinkle on the cinnamon included in the box. If you're making just a few pretzels and not the whole box, you can store your cinnamon in a ziplock bag. (The bag is a pretty good size)
I was pleasantly surprised at how good these taste! There's no salty flavor to them; they are sweet and remind me of a cinnamon bread stick. My hubby and son both loved them and ate 2 each. Hubby said he used to like to heat up pretzels fast in the microwave, but he likes the taste of them baked even more. I love how easy and quick they are to make!
Not just for a snack or dessert, cinnamon pretzels will make a nummy breakfast or lunch choice too. You can eat them plain, topped with cinnamon sugar, dunk them in icing or chocolate sauce, or add to the side of some delicious ice cream. There are so many choices! I can't wait to experiment with different items to dip them in.
