Cinnamon & Sugar Pretzel Twists

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday weekend. If you're headed to a barbecue and need to bring a quick and easy treat, this recipe's perfect. These pretzels are bathed in cinnamon and sugar and drizzled with white chocolate.... can I say YUMMY! My kids have been devouring these. Maybe they will act like they know me a school Tuesday (I doubt it!). It's funny how all the other peoples kids always give me big hugs, but my own act like I've got a disease. I would wear my Hannah Montana shirt Tuesday to embarrass them, but I think I would only be embarrassing myself in front of the teachers!


CINNAMON & SUGAR PRETZEL TWISTS
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup cinnamon sugar
3/4 bag mini pretzels (1 lb bag)
4 oz white chocolate (or Almond Bark)

Mix oil and cinnamon sugar in large microwavable dish. Add pretzels and toss to coat. Microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes (stirring every 30 seconds), or until oil's absorbed. Spread on cookie sheets to air dry. Melt white chocolate and drizzle over the top. Store in airtight container.
