Cami’s Pretzel Bites

These little babies are pure gold.

Cami makes these little beauties for us…. of course they have become our FAVORITE quarantine snack. They are easy, tasty and so pretty. I hope you love them as much as we do. In fact, let’s make some again today Cami!!!

Homemade Pretzel Bites

1 1/2 cup warm water

1 tsp. sugar

2 1/2 tsp. yeast

1 tbsp. honey

6 tbsp. butter

2 1/2 salt

4-5 cups all purpose flour

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

In your mixer, add 1 1/2 cup warm water, sugar and yeast. Let stand 10 minutes to proof.

Once the yeast is done proofing, add the honey, butter and salt.

Add the flour mixing in a little at a time. Keep mixing your dough until it comes away from the bowl but is still sticky to touch.

Once the dough is done, place it into a lightly greased bowl to rise. Let the dough rise 45-60 minutes, or until it doubles in size.

After the dough is risen, cut it into 8 pieces. Take one of the pieces and roll it into a long rope, about 22″ long. Roughly cut into 1″ pieces.

Bring 4-6 cups of water to a light boil. Add 1/4 cup baking soda. Once the water is boiling, submerge the pieces of dough, until fully covered in the hot water. Remove and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with kosher salt.

Bake the pretzel bites for 15-18 minutes, flipping over half way through. The bites should be golden and beautiful!

They will be eaten so fast! Be sure to grab a few for yourself.

Cheese Sauce

In a medium sauce pan, melt 1/2 tbsp. butter, 1/2 tbsp. flour and whisk together over medium heat. Add 1/2 cup milk and whisk together until thickened. Add 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated and stir to combine. Dip the warm pretzels into the sauce to serving.

Happy Baking!!!! XO
