      My boys love pretzels so I had to try making my own. They were easier than I thought they would be to make! I found that the dough was pretty simple to work with. The flavor of these pretzels was really good and my sons just loved them. Made for Breads and Bakery of Eastern Europe Challenge ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.

      I have never made pretzels before. The dough was easy to work with. I got 16 pretzels that were perfect for before dinner appetizers with some coarse ground mustard. They were a big hit. I think I would have enjoyed these more if they had been sprinkled with coarse salt instead of the salt mixture being brushed on. Made for Breads and Bakery of Eastern Europe Challenge *ZWT 4*
