Pretzel Bites

These were seriously some of the best pretzels ever!  They tasted just like the pretzels at the mall.  My family and I both thought that they were amazing.  My brother ate most of them.  The pretzels are so addicting!!!  You could start by eating one.... than another, then a couple more... oops, they're gone!  Enjoy!

Pretzel Bites  from here

  • 1 1/8 cups water (70 to 80 degrees F)
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 quarts water
  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • coarse salt
  • melted butter – not in the original recipe, but a must for mall food pretzel like experience
  1. In bread machine pan, place the first four ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons water or flour if needed).
  2. When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough into eight balls. Roll each into a 20-in. rope; form into pretzel shape. (I tried forming the dough into pretzels, but when I put it in the bowling water it lost its shape and looked awful, so I just cut the 20 in. ropes into small pieces and it worked perfect!) In a saucepan, bring water and baking soda to a boil. Drop pretzel bites into boiling water, two at a time; boil for 10-15 seconds. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.
  3. Place pretzels on greased baking sheets. Bake at 425 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with salt.
