    The picture above doesn't look anything like the final product, the dough is a dark chocolate brown and it was a bit plain. But the floating was very sweet and chocolatey. Overall we enjoyed it but they don't look like regular pretzels, they're literally dark chocolate brown colored, but still pretty good

    I substituted the flour with whole wheat flour, and omitted cocoa as I don't have any in hand; but the results was quite poor - the texture was extremely dry and hard, neither chewy nor soft and airy.

    These pretzels taste awesome! They were very easy to make. However, it did take some time to get used to making them into pretzel shape. The frosting does need a little bit of milk and the pretzels were kind of hard to frost. So, I ended up only frosting a few and leaving the rest unfrosted. Leaving the pretzels unfrosted does NOT take away from how delicious they are. Highly recommend for something different!
