Churro Pretzels

I can't stop eating these!!! Best Churro Pretzels ever! ohsweetbasil.com

Well, I can officially say that I married a genius. I know, you really shouldn’t brag, and don’t worry he does have his faults. Like how he cannot seem to leave his hair alone. Yes, I’m married to the man that walks past a mirror on our way out the door and he has to stop and fix it, again. It’s ridiculous. But, when I said I was going to send pretzels with the little one in her school he said, “Churro pretzels!” Pretty much we fell in love all over again in that moment. *sigh*

Seriously though, how totally awesome is Cade for thinking up this combo?! We already love these cinnamon sugar pretzels that are so addicting we had to stop making them so much or we would never leave the house, and we adore this darn churro chex mix that we like to refer to as, “Sweet Deliciousness”. So logically the next step was to combine the two and bam! Heaven in a bag.

You all do know that my heaven will be filled with food, right? And of course everything will be zero calories. Oh, and sleep. Heaven will also include sleep. Wait, one more. I will also get to take a long, hot shower all by myself without any children knocking at the door. Boo-Yah.

Did you chime in on that little conversation we had on facebook? It was so fun to hear that pretty much every mom out there (and some dads!) gave an, “Amen”. Rest in peace private shower and restroom break. I hope we meet again in the after life or once my children are grown.

In the meantime I’m going to sit back and eat another bag of these once I’ve shut the bedroom door and escaped downstairs after bedtime. YES!

  • I substituted caramel sea salt chips for the cinnamon chips and the pretzels tasted amazing! Definitely making them every Christmas from now on!

    • Oh my goodness, that sounds amazing!

  • These look amazing! Do you recommend the mini pretzels or regular sized ones for this recipe?

    • Reply
    • We prefer the mini pretzels, but if you use the bigger know that you wont get as many finished due to their bigger size. 🙂

  • Is it best to make these a day ahead of time, or on the day of? Thanks!

    • Reply
    • Hi Emily, one day ahead is ok but much like most treats they really are the yummiest the day of. 🙂

  • Thank you for this recipe. They do taste AMAZING, however, I wondered if you had any problems melting the butter and chips together and not having it turn into a big ball of brown stuff. I made this recipe twice, and both times, for some reason the cinnamon chips and butter to not seem to melt well together. Any ideas?

    • Reply
    • Camille, the best suggestion I have is to melt the butter on lower heat and nice and slow. When the butter is almost melted add the chips and stir to combine then let them finish off the heat. It sounds like everything is cooking too quickly.

  • I’ve been dying to make these ever since I repinned them. I’m going to make them exactly as written, but I’m curious to know if anyone has ever used coconut oil instead of butter? I know it would change the flavor a bit. I might try that next time. Thanks for sharing such a drool-worthy recipe!

    • I haven’t but I’d love to hear your results. Butter whisks in a little easier in most recipes but you never know, it could be awesome!

  • This is a genius idea!

  • Hi! I’m new to your blog. I’m interested in trying these out. Until I find cinnamon chips, what do you think about butterscotch chips? Would you still add cinnamon or would you try another spice? Thanks!

    • Reply
    • Hmmmm, I don’t know that anything will really work very well as a sub because the flavor will be so different. You could try white chocolate and then proceed as normal. Then you would at least have the cinnamon sugar and the white chocolate wont add a new flavor in
