Homemade Pretzel Bites

I don't know how many of you were as obsessed as I was with Pretzelmaker when you were younger, but I LOVED their pretzels. Well, I still do actually.

I came across this recipe ages ago on Pinterest and finally tried it. Super easy and they totally taste like legit pretzel bites. We practically fought over them!

Make sure you use kosher salt though because it's what makes all the difference.

Homemade Pretzel Bites
Slightly Adapted from Get Off Your Butt and Bake
Makes 30
15 regular Rhodes rolls, thawed
melted butter, about 2-4 Tbsp.
kosher salt*

1. Cut each roll into 2 sections. Roll each section into a ball-shape and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Let rise until doubled in size.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
3. Bring about 2-3 cups of water to boil in a large pot. Drop about 10 bites into the boiling water and stir gently so all sides are shocked with water. Boil for about 45 seconds.
4. Remove from water with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel that has been set on top of a dish towel.
5. Repeat with the rest of the rolls. Remove them carefully off of the paper towel onto a greased baking sheet.
6. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown.
7. Brush or roll each bite with melted butter. Sprinkle with kosher salt.

*For a variation, butter and dip into Parmesan cheese or a cinnamon/sugar mixture.
