Do you think that a whipped cream cheese would go good in this recipe? I am not a fan of sour cream when you use it fresh. I love it in coffee cakes and other desserts when you cook it after adding it to the batter, but I can't bring myself to eat it plain.

Recipe Summary

  • 1 ⅓ cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 ½ tablespoons white sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 ½ tablespoons baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water. Proof for 5 minutes.

Mix in butter or margarine, flour, and salt. Cut dough into short strips, roll into ropes, and shape into pretzels. Cover, and let rise on a greased baking sheet for about 45 minutes.

In a cast iron or other nonaluminum pan, bring water and baking soda almost to a boil. Gently lower pretzels into water for about 1 minute, turning once. Do not let water come to a full boil. Remove pretzels, and return to greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with kosher salt.


Recipe Summary

  • 20 mini pretzels
  • 20 foil-wrapped milk chocolate pieces (such as Hershey's Kisses®)
  • 20 candy-coated milk chocolate pieces (such as M&M's®)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Place pretzels on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.

Place an unwrapped chocolate piece onto each pretzel.

Heat the pretzels and chocolate candies in the preheated oven until the milk chocolate pieces become soft but hold their shape, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Watch carefully and don't let the chocolate melt to the point of dripping.

Remove the pretzels from the oven and allow to stand for 1 minute to allow candy to finish softening.

Push a colored candy-coated piece into the center of each chocolate kiss, pushing it down and flattening it. Set treats aside to cool to room temperature and fully set, about 30 minutes.


Cinnamon Sugar Soft Pretzel Bites

Cinnamon Sugar Soft Pretzel Bites are so easy to make at home. Serve them up with a sweet cream cheese icing for the ultimate game day snack!

This post is sponsored by Fleischmann&rsquos® Yeast as part of the Bake It Yourself Blogger Program. Thank you for continuing to support the brands that make My Baking Addiction possible.

I hope you all had an amazing holiday season full of friends, family, relaxation and of course &ndash food.

It&rsquos been a minute since I&rsquove last posted here on My Baking Addiction and I totally miss you guys!

I had originally planned on taking a week or so off after the holidays to get my life organized, and I had big plans! Complete with new color coordinated bins and fancy labels.

However, the flu took me out for well over a week. And let me just tell you, it was no joke. I honestly don&rsquot think I&rsquove ever been that sick as an adult.

Then my little babe got it, so we&rsquove been doing lots of fever monitoring, couch snuggling and TV watching. But now that I am feeling almost back to normal, aside from a ridiculous cough, I&rsquom going to get back to posting here on MBA starting with these Cinnamon Sugar Soft Pretzel Bites.

If you&rsquore at all like me, you live for a good mall pretzel. There&rsquos just something about a warm, fresh-out-of-the-oven soft pretzel that gives me all the feels.

However, I literally never go to the mall. So unless I&rsquom traveling and hit up the pretzel shop at the airport, I&rsquom pretzel-less.

While I was sick, I only wanted carby foods, so I was craving things like bagels, scones, and you guessed it &ndash soft pretzels.

As soon as I started to feel like a human again, I decided to whip up a batch of homemade soft pretzel dough.

But these aren&rsquot just any soft pretzels. These little cuties are dipped in melted butter, rolled in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar, and served up with a side of sweet cream cheese dip.

You know what would also be amazing? If you subbed in my chai spice blend for the cinnamon. Gah, why didn&rsquot I think of this sooner? Hello, Chai Spice Soft Pretzel Bites, I see you in my future.

Making soft pretzels at home is actually super simple. And the great thing about this recipe is that it&rsquos perfect for beginners, which means it&rsquos a great activity for the whole family.

Thanks to Fleischmann&rsquos® RapidRise&trade Yeast, there&rsquos not a lot of rise time which means you&rsquoll be enjoying these Cinnamon Sugar Soft Pretzel Bites in less than an hour from start to finish!

I&rsquove worked with Fleischmann&rsquos® for years because in my opinion, it&rsquos the best and most reliable yeast on the market. Whether I&rsquom whipping up Overnight Chai Spice Sweet Rolls, Garlic and Herb Beer Bread Rolls, or homemade soft pretzels, Fleischmann&rsquos® Yeast gives me perfect results every single time.

A lot of homemade soft pretzel recipes require you to boil the dough for about 20 seconds in a mixture of water and baking soda to achieve a nice brown, shiny exterior. However, I don&rsquot find that step to be necessary here, but I might delve into this topic further in an upcoming recipe.

In the meantime, Elle and I are indulging in these sweet pretzel bites while we play some ABC Mouse and do some coloring while snuggled up together on the couch.

It stinks that she&rsquos sick, but I&rsquoll let you in on a Mama-secret. I&rsquom also really enjoying the snuggles. And the pretzels. But the snuggles are top notch.

Blueberry & pretzel cookies

Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment. Tip the butter, sugars and vanilla into a bowl. Beat with a hand-held electric whisk until pale and fluffy. Add the egg and beat again. Tip the flour, bicarb and a pinch of salt into the bowl, and use a spatula to mix together. Add the blueberries, pretzel pieces and chocolate chunks, and mix again until everything is combined.

Scoop golf-ball-sized mounds of cookie dough onto the baking trays, making sure you leave plenty of space between each one. (You should fit 4-6 cookies on each tray, so you’ll have to bake in batches to make the total 20 cookies.) Can be frozen at this point – simply defrost in the fridge before baking. Bake for 18 mins, swapping the trays around halfway through.

Remove the trays from the oven and leave to cool for 10 mins before transferring to a wire rack, then bake the second batch. Continue until all the cookies are baked. Will keep in a cookie jar for up to 1 week.


An added bonus of these easy chocolate biscuits / chocolate pretzels is that they are usually suitable for vegans &ndash if you stick to dark chocolate of course. Check the ingredients to be sure, but pretzels usually contain just flour, oil and water.

Which means they are also dairy free and suitable for people who can&rsquot eat eggs or milk.


Cinnamon Sugar Soft Pretzel Bites

Have you ever made a delicious recipe, took one bite and instantly realized you had no business making it? Mainly because you knew you were going to eat the entire thing? That’s exactly how I felt when I made these cinnamon sugar soft pretzel bites. Knowing good and well any type of soft, yeast bread in my weakness, I did it anyway. And when I sunk my teeth into these little fluffy bites, it was on and popping! All restraint went out the window.

Which suck because I was seriously going to start getting my summer body ready. I was going to hit the gym every day and replace breakfast and lunch with smoothies. Plus, make sure I got in all 10,000 daily steps. I blame coronavirus. Yep it has ruined all of that! Maybe next year!

Ha! Just kidding….kinda. Being stuck in the house has put me in such a baking mood though! Cooking relaxes me, and my goodness I’ve been baking up a storm. I’ve made banana bread, homemade sandwich bread, and funfetti cupcakes with buttercream frosting! Lawd somebody take these mixing bowls because she is clearly out of control!!

My carb-aholic baking had calmed down for a bit until my sister had the nerve to post cinnamon sugar soft pretzels on Facebook!

I starred at the screen for about 5 minutes, mesmerized by clouds of soft, chewy homemade breadiness.

Well hello cinnamon sugar soft pretzel bites!

Today we are making cinnamon sugar soft pretzel bites!! And my, my, my, these lil cuties are so awful in all the right ways.

You’ll be sneaking in the kitchen to get one, two, or four more easily. We loved these soft pretzel bites so much that I’ve already made them twice this weekend. They go soooo quick!

Have you ever made homemade cinnamon sugar soft pretzel bites? I’m kicking myself for just now trying the from-scratch version. They were always my favorite at Auntie Anne’s Pretzels, and I have to say I like the homemade version much better! They taste so fresh and yeasty!

Should I use bread flour or all-purpose flour?

For this recipe, I use only all-purpose flour, but I hear the best results come from using a combination of half bread flour and half all-purpose flour. Once this pandemic is over and I find bread flour in the stores again, I’ll give it a try. I can’t imagine it tasting any better, though. They are heavenly with just all-purpose flour.

What does a baking soda bath do for pretzels?

You’ll notice that most homemade pretzel recipes require placing the pretzel dough in a baking soda bath. Some recipes use boiling water and some warm water. For these cinnamon sugar soft pretzels, a quick dip in warm baking soda water will do! Baking soda alkalizes the water and gives pretzels that signature taste. It also helps prevent them from fully blooming in the oven. This results in them having that soft, chewy pretzel texture instead of a super fluffy light and airy yeast roll texture.

Do I have to let the pretzel dough rise?

I’ve seen recipes that did both. Some let the dough rise, and others baked the pretzels as soon as the dough was made. I went with just one rise. I tried baking a few without letting the dough rise, and although they were good, the texture was a bit dense for my liking.

What to serve with cinnamon sugar soft pretzel bites?

I was tempted to make a dip for these cinnamon sugar soft pretzels bites, but after experiencing them, I decided they were best left as it! They honestly don’t need a dipping sauce. Still, if you’re determined to submerge these in something sinful, I’d go with chocolate, caramel, or even a fluffy cream cheese dip.

These cinnamon sugar soft pretzels bites are so soft and chewy. The recipe uses simple ingredients, so they are very easy to make and pretty darn quick! They make a great snack, dessert, or even appetizer! Throw them on a platter and watch as they quickly disappear.


Easy Homemade Soft Pretzels

Posted By Savita

I munching on an extra soft homemade pretzel and sipping Chia tea while typing this post. and kitchen is filled with pretzel-shop aroma. Aroma like I stepped into a fair and already knew - there is a soft pretzel shop close-by.. baking a fresh batch of pretzels! yumm!

Sharing today a soft pretzel recipe which will bring you taste of the fair at home! Extra soft texture with crusty salty crust yet negligible sugar (my fav). This pretzel recipe uses easy-to-find pantry ingredients and still yields pretzels which are much more lighter than you buy from pretzel shop.

So, serve these for next family-get-together, or to watch Sunday games or just because you are pretzel-fans like myself. :) Whatever the reason may be, bake a double batch since these disappear faster than you expect.

I'm a sucker for good soft pretzel! That crusty crust, soft texture, and perfect amount of salt in every bite. A good baked soft pretzel is "the treat" for savory snack-freak like myself. For the record, I have to eat a soft pretzel whenever we are in a fair or just happen to visit mall. Since it is not possible to be in mall/fair every now and then. I figured a best way to satisfy my pretzel-cravings. baking soome pretzels at home! :)

I also call my homemade pretzels - humble poor man's pretzels. I mean seriously, there are just 6 basic pantry ingredients in baking this bread snack, favorite of everyone. I'm not sure what ingredients classic German people use to bake pretzels. but this recipe is homemade and it has to be simple and delicious. that's what makes/encourages me to bake some at home. Just mix simple ingredients, rise dough for 1-2 hour, and then bake for only 10 minutes for a yummy snack to serve for any occasion!

Be it a Irish-theme party, football game day appetizer, Friday movie night or just family-munching time on the weekend. Honestly, I didn't even need a reason to enjoy few pretzels. )

When I baked this batch last weekend. the first positive reaction came from Vishal when he returned home after running an errand. just opened door and he was like "pretzels!!" His reaction reminds me of an old Indian advertisement where a little boy decides to leave home over a fight and then happen to hear some sweets are being prepared at home. and he is ecstatic at name of his favorite sweet called Jaleebi. screaming "Jalebee. " lol

I have been making pretzels from past few years now. Last time I had chance to click pictures, they did not look so good. Those days I had major camera-angel issues! Sometimes I wonder, how on this earth I saw a 75 degree angle picture fit to share on blog! :) I have a plenty of those. look at my old recipes.

But by the time, that pretzel picture got chance to make to blog, I seriously started thinking about my picture quality. I discarded the old batch of pretzel photos.

No Special Ingredients like Caustic Soda (what. ) Needed:

It's homemade pretzel and does not need out-of-ordinary stuff to make it look pretty (at least). For this reason, I name my homemade pretzels - humble poor man's pretzels, pantry-friendly, safe for kids and safe for everyone. Just so you know, most pretzel recipes call for Caustic Soda to get deep brown crust and Pretzel salt for extra-kick briney salty bite.

I'm not at all sold for caustic soda. I don't buy anything that will not bring value to my kitchen and is not so safe. The simplest replacement of caustic soda is "plain baking soda". It does not create as super-dark brown crust like hard pretzels but it still does a pretty good job (i hope pictures speak for themselves).

For salt, I simply use flaky kosher salt. I live an apartment and don't have huge kitchen cabinet to hold on to a box of salt just for pretzels. Kosher salt works fine for me.

PS: you can also use egg wash for extra glossy crust yet I wanted to keep these pretzels egg-less.

I'm sharing a plain pretzel version here but you can also add some toppings like Jalapeno Cheddar Cheese is my all time favorite. Oh, other one is pretzel pizza! :) (will share recipe sometime)

PS: I missed you all yesterday. Happy to be back. I hope you enjoying beginning of a new week. Wish you a great day ahead. :)


Easy Soft Pretzel Bites Recipe

So how does the magic happen? It all starts with cutting each grand biscuit into 4 equal pieces. That will leave you with a total of 32 pretzels.

The easiest way to cut the biscuit dough is with a pair of kitchen shears.

Now prepare 2 baking sheets by lining them with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.

Next, in a medium saucepan add enough water to fill it half full. Bring it to a boil and add baking soda.

After you cut your dough you can form them into whatever shape that you prefer.

When you add the baking soda, be aware that the boiling water will bubble up significantly for a few seconds.

Working in batches, add the soft pretzel bites into the boiling water for 30 seconds. Be sure to flip each one so that the baking soda and water coats each piece.

Working in batches, place the dough in the baking soda and water for 30 seconds to coat each side.

Then use a slotted spoon to remove each one and place on the baking sheets.

Bake for 13-17 minutes or until browned. Remove from the oven and brush with melted butter and sprinkle with coarse salt.

Brush melted butter on top and then sprinkle coarse salt on top.

Serve your Easy Soft Pretzel Bites warm or at room temperature with your favorite dipping sauce.

We serve ours with nacho cheese sauce and honey mustard. And sometimes we use our Dry Ranch Dressing Mix to make a ranch dipping sauce as well.
