Soft Pretzel Bites
March 23, 2012 § 9 Comments
I almost gave up pretzels for Lent. But then I decided not to. I know, crazy idea, right? For me, going without pretzels for 40 days and 40 nights would be nearly impossible. I’m kind-of obsessed with pretzels.
When I was training for my half marathon I would eat a banana with peanut butter and a handful of pretzel nuggets before each of my long runs. When I come home from school at 3PM and I’m absolutely starving because my lunch is scheduled for 10AM, I eat pretzel sticks dipped in peanut butter. When I’m in the lunch line at school and I spot the lunch ladies unloading a box of fresh, steaming hot soft pretzels, I buy one. When my sweet tooth is raging, I eat pretzel-crusted truffles. You get the picture. ;-)
So, since pretzels make up about 25% of my diet, I decided to give up something else for Lent. I chose Biscoff Spread. You know, that delicious Belgian cookie spread that everyone in Blog World seems to be obsessed with? Yeah, that’s the stuff that I will be going without for 3 more weeks. Waaaaaah! :-(
But enough about that. This post isn’t about Biscoff – this post is about pretzels. Not just any pretzels, though, fluffy, warm, soft pretzel bites!
A little over a year ago, I discovered this recipe for soft pretzel bites from Kirbie’s Cravings and it’s been my go-to pretzel recipe ever since! They’re the best! And that’s not just my opinion, I’ve made them for various parties and they’ve been a hit at each and every one, too!
I’m sure you’re wondering why, if these pretzels really are the best, I haven’t shared them with you before.
Funny story about that actually.
I’ve made these pretzels three times before today and, each and every time I, I mean, my family and I have demolished them before I was even able to think about pictures. They’re just that good.
I managed to take picture this time though!
You can thank me later! ;-)
