HG's Sweet 'n Cinn-ful Pretzel Swap

The Sweetest Cinn
No need to sneer at the people chomping on hot, buttery, sugar-coated
pretzels at the mall anymore. Now you can whip up your very own shopping-
mall-quality soft pretzels in your kitchen (yes, we see the humor in that
sentence). So if it's chewy, doughy, sweet, decadent pretzels you crave, feel
free to cave -- and indulge in HG's latest tasty creation. Just dough it.

1 2.25-oz. SUPERPRETZEL soft pretzel (from the 6-count frozen package) OR
another frozen soft pretzel**
1 tbsp. SPLENDA, Granular
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. salt (NOT the entire salt packet that comes with the pretzels)
10 sprays I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl mix Splenda, cinnamon and
salt; set aside. Spray a small baking pan lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
Place pretzel on pan and bake for 2 minutes. Remove pretzel and spray each
side evenly with butter spray (5 sprays per side). Next, cover entire pretzel
with Splenda/cinnamon/salt mixture. Bake for an additional 6 minutes
(flipping halfway through). Enjoy!

Auntie Anne's Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel

Twisted Cinn-ster!
Oh, Auntie Anne. We're sure you're a lovely human who has many friends
and many family members who enjoy you, but we can't help but resent you
for making those fatty pretzels. And, quite frankly, the incredibly tempting
smell of your 450-calorie, 9-gram-of-fat Cinnamon Sugar ones is a bit much
for us to handle on our shopping mall excursions. You left us no alternative --
we HAD to find a way to make a guilt-free version at home. So we did! Try
HG's Sweet 'n Cinn-ful Pretzel Swap. And people, the next time you're at the
mall, spend your time drooling over shoes, not pretzels.
