Quick Cinnamon Sugared Pretzel Bites


Soft dough pretzels are now very much available here in the UK and believe me we all love them! I especially craved them during my pregnancy and got my husband to drive a few miles at the time, to buy me a massive cinnamon sugar coated pretzel. I vividly remember sitting on a wooden bench in the shopping mall, munching away with sugar everywhere.
I wish now I had thought of making them at home but I guess that may have in turn got me too fat, then I was already (pregnancy related lol!)
It’s no surprise that my little boy too is hooked on them. Up to now he has only had the plain ones but yesterday the monkey got introduced to cinnamon sugar! “I love sugar!”, he kept saying…I wonder why? ;)

I decided to make pretzel bites, that way I didn’t feel the need to eat all of them. I was also really good as I shared a whole tub full with my youngest brother and his wife. He came to collect them especially and were thoroughly enjoyed from the message I later received from my sister-in-law. So pleased! Do give them a go plus the added benefit is that they are very quick to make and doesn’t follow the normal lengthy process of making pretzels.
Enjoy!
Much love D x
