Cinnamon Roll Pretzels

IMG_0044I just took the love language test online to figure out what my love language was. 

Aaaaaaand then emailed the results to my husband.

I’m assertive like that.

{Don’t worry. I got my husband to take the actual test and send me the results. Take a chill pill.}

I have two love languages that tied for first: acts of service and receiving gifts.

Keeping me happy doesn’t really take much. Give me pretty things and do nice things for me. Lol!

Is that TOO much to ask? I mean really.

I think there should be a 6th love language called “giving me food I want to stuff my face with”. That would probably be my first love language. And probably my husband’s too. He did after all fall desperately in love with me after giving him a slice of this Double Chocolate Silk Cream Pie. #truth 

What does all of this have to do with today’s recipe? Well, not a whole lot…other than me wanting to stuff my face {what else is new?} with all of these Cinnamon Roll Pretzels. Since I’m off sugar and hitting the gym HARD, I had just plain {boring, lame} pretzels and gave these little bad boys away. But from the people I gave them to, I heard they were amazing.

So, you’re welcome.

Please excuse me while I go cry myself to sleep.

Here’s how you make them:IMG_0002Start with a heaping 4 cups of pretzels in a large bowl. I know….REALLY HARD.IMG_0005Then in a separate bowl, stir sugar and cinnamon together.IMG_0007Also, melt some butter.IMG_0024So, toss the pretzels in melted butter, than cinnamon and sugar. Spread them out on a baking sheet and send them into a hot oven for 12 minutes.IMG_0025While those are baking, melt some vanilla candy melts. White chocolate works just fine too.IMG_0028Once the sugar is good and stuck onto the pretzels, spread them out so each one can get an even drizzle of the candy melt.IMG_0032Like so! I used a squeeze bottle, but a spoon works fine too.IMG_0037Let the candy melt set up about 5 minutes and then these cinnamon roll pretzels are ready to eat! Mmm..

Get the recipe below. Enjoy your weekend, friends!
