Fresh pretzels aren't so easy to find around here, so making these was an absolute winner for me, as was eating them, for sure! I'll definitely be making these wonderful treats again, I know! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
