Soft Pretzel Bites...2 Ways! Stuffed and Sweet!

I am so hooked on this new recipe I just tried!!! I've been wanting to make my own pretzels for years, but I kept putting it off because I thought it would never work out for me! Then a few days ago I saw this recipe a food friend named Bill Wentz posted on Facebook! This recipe was the easiest I've seen for soft pretzels!!! It's just 5 ingredients! You just mix everything together and then knead, shape, dip and bake for 10 minutes! The hardest part for me was shaping the pretzels! Here's a picture of my first attempt at pretzel shaping.......

First attempt!
I know these look bad!!!
But they tasted great!
These are coated with cinnamon and brown sugar!

Then I tried it again and added jalapeno and shredded cheddar to the dough! My pretzel shaping skills slightly improved with these!

Second attempt!

Then I made these yet again and decided to make them into nuggets! I split the dough in half and filled some of the nuggets with chopped jarred jalapeno and shredded cheddar cheese. I also sprinkled some cheddar on top before baking them for 10 minutes!

These were DELICIOUS!!! And so easy to eat!!! A few bites and they were gone!!! I made the other half of the batch into a sweet pretzel nugget!
I mixed about 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 1 tsp. of cinnamon powder into the dough. Then I sprinkled the tops with cinnamon and brown sugar before baking them. These were just as delicious...perfect with a cup of coffee!

  1. Looks great Lillian. I LOVE those big soft pretzels at the mall that they do all sorts of different ways. These would be fun to make at home!

    1. Thanks Val! Yes, and I'm having so much fun trying different ways! Next I'll be making these chocolate filled! My food friend Bill Wentz just gave me that idea!
