Let me tell you, these are good! Really good! It’s just to bad that I didn’t get to enjoy them. You see, I made these the day before my trip so the girls and I could have a snack. I packed my hand bag and placed it on the couch then my husband and I ran to my daughter’s preschool for her play.Little did I realize that my dog had planned a snack for her as well. In the rush to get out the door I forgot to put her in her kennel.
Well bye bye to the granola bar snack on the plane. I am glad that I managed a taste them before she got them all.
I will definitely be making these as soon as I get home.

This weekend I got to spend some time with family out of town. It was great to see my parents, sisters, brother in law, nieces and nephew. What was really great was that I got to do some holiday baking with a couple of my sisters. It is so fun spending time in the kitchen with family. My sister Jill brought over some ingredients and we decided to make something she saw on Pinterest. This was super easy and actually helped me figure out a great way to drizzle chocolate without having a plastic bottle to do it.
Cinnamon White Chocolate Pretzels
Got this from my sister Jill who got it online. I searched it and found the original so you can find it Cinnamon Toast White Chocolate Pretzels
What I am going to do differently is give you step by step instructions and the list of ingredients on how to whip these up!
YOU WILL NEED:
Cinnamon and sugar mixture for sprinkling
Mix oil, sugar and cinnamon.
Pour mixture of oil, sugar and cinnamon over pretzels in a microwaveable bowl.
Toss to coat the pretzels.
Spread out onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
Spread out into a single layer.
Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture.
So next melt your white chocolate over a double boiler.
Spoon into a sandwich bag.
Cut the edge and drizzle.
(WARNING THIS IS HOT. I HAD TO USE A PAPERTOWEL BETWEEN MY HAND AND BAG)
REST FOR 15 MINUTES TO ALLOW CHOCOLATE TO SET.
