Feature Friday - Pretzel Bites

Quite a while back I pinned THIS RECIPE from Get Off Your Butt and Bake for pretzel bites.  Well, the boys and I got around to trying them and they were delicious.

The recipe uses Rhodes rolls and involves dunking the bread in boiling water and then baking them.  I wasn't sure about the dunking, but then I read that that's what makes them a little chewier on the outside like pretzels.  The process worked really well.

After they were cooked I got ready to bathe them in butter and parmesan cheese (or butter and cinnamon and sugar).  Can anything dunked in better be bad?

These little hands kept removing them as I loaded the plate.  Bite size?  Check.  Yummy?  Check.

I wouldn't make them weekly.  They take some time and they aren't exactly healthy, but they were really fun to try out and they'd be fun for a family movie night at home.

You can find the recipe HERE.  Thanks for dropping in.

My mother-in-law makes these and I am obsessed with them. They are SO good.

If you dissolve baking soda (about 1/4 cup) in 2 cups hot water, you get the same results and not have to deal with boiling water. My kids love to help make homemade pretzel bites with me. I will have to try them your way with the cinnamon and sugar. I am lazy and just sprinkle them with coarse kosher salt before I bake them.

Congratulations on a new baby, and a baby girl at that! Baden's reaction really made me laugh, thanks for sharing!

We love those at my house, but you seriously have to make browned butter frosting to dip it in. I use this recipe, but I add a little extra milk to make it creamier. It will change your pretzel bite dipping LIFE! Trust me.
