How can you not fall in love with these golden nuggets of amazing?! I made a spicy Mustard Sauce to go with them.  Use 3 Tbsp of  Yellow Mustard and 1 Tbsp of Sriracha Sauce and stir together.

Spicy and Tangy! A perfect accompaniment to this snack!

The trick that gives these pretzel bites their classic flavor is a quick dip in boiling water with baking soda.  Its an essential step that you can’t leave out if you want an authentic soft pretzel taste.  When I say that these are super easy I really mean it!  The dough comes together super easy and is a no fuss low maintenance yeast dough.

I like to use Red Star quick rise yeast that comes in a jar.  I just use 1 tbsp for this recipe.  You can also use 1 package dry active yeast.  I just think that Red Star is a superior ingredient and I never have any issues with it rising.

To top off these beauties is a tasty sprinkle of coarse Kosher Salt.  You can use Sea Salt if you like also.  That bit of salt really amps up the pretzel flavor.  Well that is salts job afterall.

These are the perfect Football Party Food also!! Beer, Pretzels and Football…….

Sounds like a perfect Autumn Day!

    Oh my gosh, girl. I want to pop everyone of those little pretzel bites in my mouth! But only after dipping them in that mustard, of course. I’m a freak for dips and that spicy mustard sounds awesome!
