Pretzel Bites Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp coarse salt
  • 2 1/2 tsp yeast
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 egg yolk + 1 tbsp water
  • 10 cups water
  • 2/3 cup baking soda


To make dough:

Place water, sugar and salt into a mixing bowl. Sprinkle yeast over the top and let it set for about 5 minutes. Attach dough hook, add butter, mix lightly. Add flour and knead in low until blended and starts to come together. Increase speed to medium and mix for about five minutes. Lightly oil bowl, and turn dough over once to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and let raise until double in size.

Line 2 sheets with baking parchment.

Heat oven to 450.

Heat water and baking soda in a large pan to rolling boil.

On lightly sprayed surface, dived dough into six equal portions.

Roll each section into a 12-15 inch rope. Cut each rope in half, then quarters, then each quarter into 3 pieces, making 12 bites per rope. Continue until all dough is cut.

Place about 1/2 of the pretzel dough bites into the boiling water for 30 -60 seconds. Return to parchment pan, brush with egg wash, and sprinkle with coarse salt.  Bake 9-12 minutes or until golden brown.
