"I recall preparing this recipe! I'd used 1/2 tsp. salt and I'd added 1/2 cup sugar-cinnamon mixture and 2 cups of miniature pretzel twists! This is a really great snack item to prepare-I'd written out this recipe when preparing it! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!

PLEASE NOTE: I mix up: 1 cup of sugar with 3 Tbsp. ground cinnamon and store in an airtight container.
This way, I can measure out the amount of cinnamon-sugar I need!"
