Sweet Salty Cinnamony Pretzel Snack Mix-you’ll want to clean out the snack cabinet and make this!
What is it with snack foods, especially pretzels?
You buy them for a party or maybe because you know they are healthier for you than say…Doritos.
The bag gets opened and everyone nibbles on them for a few days.
And then it happens. Everyone stops eating them, with only a serving or so left in the bag.
This seems to happen every time, especially with pretzels.
I know why, it’s all the jostling of the bag, knocking the salt off.
No one wants to eat a naked pretzel, at least not in my house.
Honestly, I think a few are just in it for the salt.
You can’t just throw the bag away, that’s wasteful.
So instead, you recycle. You find the last of the peanuts and the box of cereal tucked into the back corner.
A little butter, sugar, cinnamon and more salt.
You’ve got a whole new snack food and trust me, this one won’t end up half eaten, shoved in the back of the cabinet.
I had to force my son to share some with the girls.
