Ingredients

  • 1 package Simply Homemade® Pretzel Creations™
  • 3/4 cup very warm water 120º to 130ºF
  • 2 tablespoons Mazola® Corn Oil
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • Combine pretzel mix and yeast in a large mixing bowl. Add very warm water and oil and stir until thoroughly combined. (Dough may be stiff; use hands if desired).
  • Cover dough and let rise 25 minutes in a warm, draft-free place. (Dough will not double in size.)
  • Divide dough into 8 equal portions; roll each into a 16-inch long rope. Cut each rope into 10 pieces, each piece will be about 1-1/2 inches long. Place the pieces (bites) on 2 greased baking sheets (they can be placed quite close together). Cover bites with towel to prevent them from drying out. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Combine 6 cups water with baking soda in a large deep saucepan until water boils (mixture will be foamy). Using a slotted spoon or spatula, dip bites (4 to 5 at a time) into the boiling water for about 15 to 20 seconds, until they rise to the surface. Remove from water and place back on baking sheet. Continue with remaining bites.
  • Bake for 5 minutes and then switch pans to promote more even browning. While bites are baking combine cinnamon and sugar in a medium size bowl and stir to combine. Bake an additional 5 to 7 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and immediately coat bites with melted butter using a pastry brush.
  • Working four or five bites at a time, transfer bites that have been brushed with butter to the bowl containing cinnamon and sugar mixture. Coat with cinnamon sugar mixture, then transfer to a clean baking sheet. Repeat with remaining bites.
  • Bites are delicious served warm and are best eaten the same day.
  • Recipe note: You won't need the pretzel salt for these.
