St. Patricks Day Pretzel

Here's a quick easy treat to make with kids.
You will need: a can of refrigerated bread stick dough
green decorating sugar

Use a section of bread stick dough to form a heart shape. Repeat with two other sections. Place the three heart shapes together to form a large shamrock. Use the rest of the sections in the same way. Place shamrocks on a lightly oiled piece of aluminum foil on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon and green sugar. Bake according to bread stick directions. Cool and enjoy.
