These pretzels are really good; I found them on a site called Kids Health Recipes. Sesame seeds are great on them, but your kids might like cinnamon & sugar. I hope you like them because my family and I sure did! :)

My kids had fun making these. But they didn't like them (the yeast flavor was to strong), which was a good thing. DH ate most of them. We made these with 3 different toppings, colby-jack cheese, kosher salt and cinnamon sugar. I used an egg wash for the salt and sugar to help it stick. Made for Spring PAC 2010.
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (165 degrees Celsius).
- Put the yeast in a small bowl with the water and honey. Stir a little, then let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.
- Mix the flour and salt together in a medium-size bowl.
- After the 5 minutes is up, check on the yeast mixture. It should be bigger than before and a little bubbly. Add this mixture to the flour and salt mixture.
- Stir everything together. Use a spoon to start. Finish with your hands. The dough is ready when it's still a little crumbly and flaky.
- Put the dough on the cutting board and knead it like you are playing with clay. Knead it into one big ball.
- Break off a piece of dough that's about the size of a big gumball or superball. Use your hands to roll it into a skinny snake.
- Twist the snake into a medium-size pretzel shape, and put it on the cookie sheet. Do this with all the dough, making 12 pretzels.
- Bake your pretzels for 10 minutes. Let them cool, add the toppings, and take a bite! I hope you like them! :D.
