Hello friends! Now that the football season finale Super Bowl is over, everyone is heading full swing into Valentines Day. Of course, I’ve been in the V-Day state of mind since New Years (In case you couldn’t tell).

I’ve always had a love- hate relationship with Valentines Day.  On the once hand, I’m like “ugh, stupid made up consumerist holiday,” but on the other hand… “hearts and chocolate and flowers and love and PINK OMG.” I just can’t decide if I like it or not.

But you know what I do know I like? Food that Boyfriend and I both love. His favorite food is pretzels, and I’ve had a love affair with Nutella since I first had it five years ago.  I used Sally’s recipe for soft pretzels and turned them into bites. It only takes 30 minutes and five ingredients to make these pretzels! I attempted to make them heart-shaped, but they didn’t quite hold their shape after baking. Here’s a visual of what I did if you want to make them heart shaped as well.

The glaze is SO SO easy to make and so, so good. All you do is whisk together Nutella, cinnamon, and milk. I used 2% cows milk, but you may use whatever milk you prefer.  I’m not a huge fan of cinnamon, so I kept the cinnamon to only one teaspoon. If you’re a cinnamon lover, you may want to add more.

I’m not including the recipe for the pretzel bites, because a) it’s not my recipe, and b) I’ve posted about it before.  You may use whatever pretzel recipe you know and love, but I highly encourage making this glaze- it’s easy and perfect for date night, or any night.

    THIS IS THE BEST. I already tweeted this earlier but I have to leave a comment as well because I love this idea so much! I have a love-hate relationship with V-day as well (more so because I’m single), but I am a fan of all the chocolate happiness happening around this time and I can’t deny me some Nutella!

    That cinnamon Nutella glaze sounds fab, and those pretzel bites are adorable! The perfect treat for Valentine’s Day without being too over the top (or sacrificing taste, either)! These would totally be a hit with my boyfriend and I, too. 🙂

    These are so cute, Faith! I love that they’re heart shaped! I’ve never made homemade pretzels before, but if I do, I think they will always have to be heart shaped. 🙂 The cinnamon nutella glaze looks amazing too!

    These are super cute pretzel bites. And just want to put my face into that Nutella glaze!!! I grew up on Nutella in Germany but then didn’t have it for a few years. Pregnancy awoke my love for it again. Can’t say no to baby cravings 😉
