I first had these in Sweden and absolutely loved them. These are great as well. It took me a couple trips to different grocery stores to get the malt, but other than than, very easy to make!
These were AWSOME! My kids had a blast helping shape the pretzels! I just put everything into my kitchen aid and let it go for 10 minutes. SO EASY! I have been searching for a traditional pretzel recipe since a friend brought pretzels to a potluck. Wow! These were great. Got Malt Extract from a friend who brews his own beer(probably don't need it) and shaped into a traditional pretzel shape. Divided the dough into 1 ounce portions and made smaller pretzels. This recipe uses more baking soda than others, will try less next time. My only problem was that I put too much salt on top of the pretzels before I baked them.... my bad! Thanks for posting!
