The Easiest Pretzel Bites Ever

Sharing is caring!

Everyone in my family loves pretzel – you know those types you have at the mall. Well we are STUCK in a snow storm here in Portland, OR so I decided to make this recipe for my family so they can get their pretzel fix. This recipe is BEYOND easy- this really is one that everyone in the family can make. Also this recipe is pretty healthy – the pretzels at the mall use melted butter I did not do that. I really do not think it hurt the taste by not having the butter.

Yep this is ALL you need – the magic of soft pretzels is the use of baking soda. That is what gives pretzels that wonderful taste. To make it even easier I use pre-made dough. Pizza dough works great and you really cannot tell the difference. For dipping sauces we use a honey mustard but cheese whiz is always a favorite.
