Technically this could be filed under the Sundays With Sarah posts but since I helped I am putting it under the pinterest test kitchen. It's one of the perks of being both the blog owner and mom so even though Sarah mixed and made the dough I'm still claiming it :-)
Plus we tried it once before and it could have been submitted to that pinterest fail site. But we read up on homemade pretzel making and figured out what to do differently and easy peasy we had a delicious treat for this summer's first ladies swim night. (What is a lady's swim night? An evening moms and ladies eighteen and older bring a favorite finger food and beverage to my house and come float in the pool. It's so fun and relaxing!)
We served them with both sweet (chocolate and caramel) dipping sauces as well as two different kinds of cheese sauces. I couldn't choose a favorite...it was all good!
The original recipe did a few things differently. Firstly, they left the dough in ropes and made sort of long pretzel sticks instead of bites. Secondly, they also had a second 20 minute rest before they boiled the dough.
Hope you enjoy!
