Pretzel Bites

Ever been to the mall and gotten one of those yummy soft pretzels?  Yeah, they're delicious.  When I saw a recipe for them on Pinterest, and that the recipe involved making the dough in my beloved bread machine, I was in!  Every time I've made them, they are gone in a heartbeat! 

Here's the recipe (originally from Dine and Dish):

  • 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 (approx. 4 Tbsp.)

  • Directions:
    • In bread machine pan, place the first four ingredients in order suggested by the manufacturer. Select dough setting.
    • When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Pinch off a decent size piece of dough and roll into a rope.  Cut rope into 1-inch (ish) pieces.
    • Bring water and baking soda to a boil. Drop pretzel bites into boiling water, about 10 at a time; boil for 10-15 seconds. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.
    • Place pretzel bites on greased baking sheets. Bake at 425 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
    • Immediately toss bites in melted butter in a large bowl, while sprinkling with coarse salt.
