When you find yourself at a party full of appetizers, do you reach for the sweet stuff or the salty stuff? For me, it's always, always the sweet stuff. Put a bag of chips in front of me and I won't look at it twice but anything with sugar is doomed. Despite my affinity for the sweet stuff, there are two salty snacks that I happen to love: pretzels and popcorn. When my mom mentioned a recipe for Cinnamon Pretzels that she pulled out of a magazine, I knew I'd struck gold. My favorite salty snack, with the addition of sugar?! Now we're talking!
