Sweet Pretzel Nuggets

"This crowd-pleasing snack has been a tremendous hit both at home and at work," reports Billie Sue Ebinger from Holton, Indiana. The fun crunchy bites have a sweet cinnamon-toast taste and just a hint of saltiness that make them very munchable.

    WOW! These are ridiculously easy, delicious, and slightly addicting! They are a perfect sweet/salty party snack - not overly sweet, but it nicely balances the saltiness of the pretzel. I used mini pretzel twists and recommend spending a good amount of time stirring them as the sugar mixture falls through the hole so it takes a bit longer to get all the pretzels coated. Takes less than 15 minutes per batch. We'll be making these again soon!
