Cinnamon Roll Pretzels

Hello hello and Merry Christmas, everybody! Hope you're all having a great day and that you were at the top of Santa's "good" list! I'm at my parents' place right now - we've done presents, had Hills BBQ takeaway for lunch, the turkey's in the oven now and I'm taking a quick little break! I'll blog about the meal in the next couple of days, but for today I wanted to share a quick Christmassy recipe with you!

Earlier this week, we were lucky enough to be invited to the fabulous Shellie and Ewen's "The Night Before the Night Before the Night Before Christmas" party - there was great company, delicious eggnog, magnificent Kanelbulle, and a big bowl of these amazing salty-sweet-cinnamon pretzel things that I just Could Not Stop eating!

Shellie kindly sent me the recipe after the party, and I went ahead and made a double batch to share* with my colleagues** at work*** before the Christmas break. They're so easy! All you do is stir together some little crunchy pretzels through a mixture of melted butter, sugar and cinnamon, and bake them until they go extra crisp and are super fragrant. Once they've cooled, you drizzle them with melted white chocolate, so they look like a cinnamon roll!

With their mix of salt and sugar in a cute and crunchy little package, they're seriously compulsive. I think they're awesome for parties, gifting, or general snacking. The original recipe comes from Crunchy Creamy Sweet, and is definitely a keeper!

Cinnamon Roll Pretzels

Cinnamon Roll Pretzels
Recipe from Crunchy Creamy Sweet

5 cups pretzels (this was about 250 grams)
60 grams unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1.5 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup white chocolate chips, for melting

Preheat the oven to 175C, and line a large baking tray with baking paper.
Place the pretzels in a large bowl.
Melt the butter, and stir through the sugar and cinnamon.
Pour this mixture over the pretzels, and toss gently to combine so that the pretzels are evenly coated in the mixture.
Spread the pretzels out evenly over the tray.
Bake for 12 minutes, or until they are slightly darkened and smell amazing!
Allow to cool completely in the tray.
Melt the chocolate chips, then drizzle haphazardly over the pretzels.
Allow to set before serving. Keep any leftovers (hah!) in an airtight container.
Makes 5 cups, you may well want to make a double batch
