If you have been following me for a while you would know that I traveled to Lancaster, Pennsylvania each summer and stayed on a Mennonite Chicken and Dairy Cow Farm – each summer would be filled with cows escaping and trampling the garden or see 35,000 plus baby chicks being delivered to the chicken houses ( which seemed to go on for a city block) – my mom and I would have all these special traditions ( like going to Wilbur Chocolate Factory, going to the Herr’s Chip Factory, going to antique stores, and MOST important we would go to this little pretzel shop – this shop was run by Mennonites and it was so small you could easily miss it — they would make the BEST pretzels. This little shop you might have heard of it – Auntie Anne’s Pretzels 😉 Ever since they became huge my mom has never had an Auntie Anna’s pretzel she is funny in that way — she swears that they changed the recipe and it does not smell right. So I decided to try and make some homemade pretzel bites for her 🙂

I decided that I would not try and make the dough – I have been rocky with baking lately so I thought it would be best to try and use premade pizza crust ( do not worry it ended up being AMAZING Pretzel Bites)

Here is my dad helping me in the kitchen

I did not know what to do about the cheese sauce so I went with cheese whiz —- which I was shocked when my mom said it tasted like the cheese sauce from Auntie Anne’s — the most important part about making this dish is the baking soda bath that the pretzels must take
