Soft Pretzel Bites Recipe
Homemade Pretzel Bites
- 1 1/4 cup warm water
- 1 T. yeast
- 3 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
- 3/4 c. powdered sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. vegetable oil
- 2 c. hot water
- 1/4 c. baking soda
- Mix water/yeast. Cover and let it rest for 10 minutes or until it is foamy.
- Mix dry ingredients together. Slowly add water/yeast mixture and mix until a soft dough forms. Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.
- Spray bowl with non stick cooking spray and return dough to bowl. Cover loosely with a towel and let raise until doubled, about an hour.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Make a bath for the pretzels by combining the baking soda with hot water and stir until soda is mostly dissolved (it won't dissolve completely).
- Roll out dough into a long rectangle (about 12"x24"). Using a pizza cutter, cut into small 2" sections. Dip each dough square into the water/soda bath and place on a greased baking sheet. If you are making salted or garlic pretzels, sprinkle with kosher salt.
- Bake for 4 minutes, then rotate pan and bake another 4 minutes.
