Easy 30-minute soft pretzels with a 3-ingredient cinnamon-Nutella glaze. Perfect treat for date night, or any night!
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.
(Pardon the horrible lighting, these photos were taken at 10:00PM.)
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.
