Mall pretzels are pretty good, but warm, chewy, soft pretzels fresh out of the oven are so much better. Why shell out big bucks at the mall or ballpark with no guarantee of freshness (how long has it been hanging under the heat lamp?), when you can easily make a whole batch at home for a fraction of the cost and have some fun with your family. Plus, warm pretzels are the kind of snack that transcends seasons—they taste just as great on a hot summer night as they do at a dead-of-winter hockey game.
Once you see how easy it is, you’ll never buy mall pretzels again!
Pretzel Appetizer and Snack Ideas
Soft pretzels can be twisted into a traditional shape or cut into bite-sized pieces. For a super easy, delicious, grab-and-go appetizer pretzel bites are the way to go. Serve plain or stuffed with cheese, along with a variety of dipping sauces for a fun and delicious snack perfect for after-school, movie nights, party appetizers, game days, or "just because." To reheat, just pop in the microwave for a few seconds, tear a piece off, dunk in your favorite dipping sauce, and enjoy!
