Pretzel Bites Recipe

Pretzel Bites recipe


These are yummy, twisty bread snacks. They are brown and salty on the outside, and soft inside. You can make them with flour, water, and a few other things. They're fun to shape like a twist!


1 packet (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water (110°F)
1 tablespoon sugar
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
10 cups water
2/3 cup baking soda
1 large egg, beaten
Coarse sea salt, for topping


In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water. Let it sit for about 5 minutes, until it becomes frothy.
Add the flour, kosher salt, and melted butter to the yeast mixture. Mix until a dough forms, then knead on a lightly floured surface for about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic.
Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
Preheat your oven to 450°F (232°C) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large pot, bring 10 cups of water to a boil. Slowly add the baking soda (it will bubble up).
Turn the risen dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and divide into 8 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a rope and cut into 1-inch bites.
Boil the pretzel bites in the baking soda water for 30 seconds, then remove with a slotted spoon and place on the prepared baking sheets.
Brush each pretzel bite with the beaten egg and sprinkle with coarse sea salt.
Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool slightly before serving.
