Soft Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites

These Soft Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites are a sure hit with my family. I have made these a couple of times now and they are always the first ones to get consumed.

Out of nowhere, I was craving for some cinnamon pretzels. I didn’t want to go out because it was cold outside and I was too lazy to drive to buy them.

Thank goodness for the internet specifically to Buzz Feed. I was able to find the perfect recipe for the cinnamon sugar soft pretzel bites I was looking for. I said perfect because I found all the ingredients in our kitchen.

These soft cinnamon sugar pretzel bites did not fail to satisfy my hunger and my taste buds. Frankly, I only ate three pieces because my daughter and my wife ate everything when I went out to get the mails. Haha.

These soft cinnamon sugar pretzel bites are perfectly soft in the middle while the outside was toasty and crunchy. For me, these bites are by far the tastiest and yummiest ones I have ever tasted. The balance of sugar and cinnamon is perfect.

I didn’t make the dip because these bites alone are perfect. These soft pretzel bites are best eaten when they are warm.

I had to make another batch, by the way, because I wanted to bring them to work for snacks.

Since that day, which was a month ago, I have made these bites a couple of times. I made them for my nephews birthday party, for our family’s road trip, and some other fun occasions. These soft cinnamon sugar pretzel bites never fail to satisfy our taste buds.

Did I say that these pretzel bites are way too easy to create? Yes, these yummy, oozing with flavor bites are easy to create than even a novice baker can make with perfection.

So, without further ado, here is the recipe for the soft cinnamon sugar pretzel bites. Enjoy, guys!

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water. Add the salt, sugar, and butter. Stir to combine.

Add flour, a cup at a time, until dough is thick and no longer sticky. Poke the dough with finger. If it bounces back, then, it’s good.

Flour a surface and knead the dough for 3 minutes or until it forms a smooth ball.

Get another bowl and spray it with oil. Place the dough in there. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 425ºF or 220ºC.

Bring 9 cups of water to a boil. Add ½ cup of baking soda. Baking soda is used to prevent the bite sized pieces of dough from sticking together.

Pull bite-sized pieces from the dough. Drop into the baking soda bath. Boil them for 20-25 seconds.

Remove dough bites from the bath and place them on a well-oiled baking sheet.

Beat together eggs and brush them over the pretzel bites.

Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until they are golden brown.

In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon.

Dip each pretzel bite into the melted butter, then, roll in cinnamon sugar mixture.
Serve warm.
