Who doesn't love a crunchy sweet & salty snack! Disclaimer: This is absolutely not a healthy snack...but it's tasty! And probably not as unhealthy as, say, these Sticky Muffin Buns, or these Ooey-Gooey Butterscotch Brownies, or even these easy Ten-Minute Caramels. They are, however, just as easy as the ten-minute caramels, but they have more baking time.
2/3-cup vegetable oil
(mix these together--I just used the liquid measuring cup I used to measure out the oil)
1 bag pretzels
(put these in an oven-safe dish or roasting pan)
Pour the oil mixture over the pretzels and give it a stir...
Throw it in the oven (at 300 degrees).
Bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring every ten minutes.
And you're done!! Wait for a few
seconds minutes for these to cool before scarfing them up. These are good cool, but I really liked them when they were still warm from the oven.
THE FINAL REVIEW: It was a great (once in a while) snack. When I saw these on Pinterest it looked like the sugar had caramelized into a kind of toffee, and it didn't (at least when I tried it). The sugar was definitely just as granular as it started, and it didn't really melt over the pretzels like I was expecting it to. I had extra sugar and oil in the bottom of my dish after baking these for about 40 minutes, so I wish I had used the entire bag (I used about 3/4 of the bag). Overall these were good, but I think next time I have a hankering for something sweet & salty I'll try these pretzels instead.
