DIRECTIONS

  • With your mixer, combine flour, salt, sugar, and yeast. Then add in 1 cup warm water and mix until well combined. You could also do this by hand or use a food processor. Knead the dough until it is smooth.
  • Sprinkle flour in the bottom of a bowl. Place the dough in the bowl and cover it. Allow it to sit for about 30 minutes to rise.
  • Knead the dough for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Divide the dough into 4 equal sections. Form each section into strips about 8 inches long and about 1 inch wide. Cut each strip into 8 pieces so that you have 32 pretzel bites.
  • Pre-heat your oven to 475 degrees.
  • In a shallow dish combine one cup of very hot water with 2 tablespoons baking soda. Whisk well to combine.
  • Place pretzel bites in the water/baking soda mixture and allow to site for one minute. Then flip the pretzel bites and allow to sit in the mixture for one minute longer. Arrange the pretzels on a greased baking sheet.
  • Allow the pretzel bites to rest for about 5 minutes, then place them in the oven for 10-11 minutes, or until the pretzel bites are nice and brown.
  • While the pretzel bites are baking, melt 4 tablespoons of butter (1 minute in the microwave does the trick) and in a small bowl combine 1/2 granulated sugar with 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Dip each pretzel bite in butter, then in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • With your mixture, cream together cream cheese and butter. Add in confectioners sugar and mix until smooth. Add in 1-2 tablespoons of milk depending on your desired consistency.
  • Serve pretzel bites with cream cheese frosting on the side.
