Sweet Pretzel Bites These Pretzel Bites rolled in Cinnamon Sugar are highly addictive and perfect after-school snack for the kids.

We are baking ‘Pretzels’ for the first Bread Baker’s challenge of the year. Our lovely host Stacy (Food Lust People Love) wanted us to bake some pretzels – either traditional or get creative with them. So I made these cinnamon sugar covered pretzel bites. These little snacks are highly addictive, so make sure to make the whole batch.Sweet Pretzel BitesMy daughter loves pretzels especially the samples given out before the pretzels stalls in the mall. Couple of years ago, she used to keep asking if I was going to Walmart all the time. I didn’t know what a 3 year old had to get from Walmart. It wasn’t until I got there that I realized that they were giving out pretzel bites at the door from Aunt Annie’s that opened in the store.Sweet Pretzel BitesI have a couple of pretzel recipes on the blog already (Vyborg & Sourdough). But I have always wanted to bake these mini ones at home and finally got a chance. Recipe is from the King Arthur flour site. This recipe takes less than 1½ hours from start to finish. The only change I made to the recipe is to add some wholewheat flour to make them a little less guilty to eat.Sweet Pretzel BitesThese pretzel bites are soft, sweet and absolutely delicious. I made them for my kids as their after-school snack and they couldn’t be happier. My daughter said she can eat these ‘aall day’ and I take that as a complement 🙂

Ingredients
For the Dough:
  • cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup White Wholewheat flour
  • tsp Instant Yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup Lukewarm Water
For the Baking Soda Bath:
  • 1 cup water

Other Ingredients:

  • 6 tbsp UnsaltedButter, melted
  • ¼ cup Granulated Sugar (I used Imperial Sugar)
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
Servings: Pretzel Bites
Instructions
  1. Combine all the dry ingredients for the dough in a mixing bowl. Add 7/8 cup of lukewarm water and mix. Knead until a smooth, pliable dough forms. Add more water if needed. Cover and set aside to rise for 30 minutes.
  2. In the mean time, make the baking soda bath. Bring water to a boil and add the baking soda. Mix well and turn off the heat. Let the mixture cool to lukewarm or cooler.
  3. Combine cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and keep ready.
  4. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly grease the paper.
  5. Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces. Roll each piece into 12"~15" long log. Cut the log into 12 equal size pieces.
  6. Pour the baking soda mixture into a large bowl and add all the dough balls. Swish them around for 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon onto the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Sprinkle the bites with the sparkling sugar and bake for 12~15 minutes or until the pretzel bites are golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and roll them in melted butter. Immediately take them out and roll them in cinnamon sugar. Place them on cooling rack. Enjoy them warm or store them in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

  1. oh ! these look so perfect, Pavani ! I had only one the original pretzel shape in mind and that was daunting , so gave up the theme ! This is such a fun idea to make and bite into 🙂 glad ur lil one liked it and eats it “aaal day” 🙂

    Btw, I must say u r the best ambasssador for KAF recipes :p – I visit that often after ur baking links !

  2. Beautiful and tempting. I so wanted to try making pretzels at home so when the theme was decided I was happy. However, couldn’t participate as I didn’t have access to a kitchen. I think these bite size pretzels would probably be easier to make as a first timer.

  3. I am bookmarking it, loved these cinnamon sugar covered pretzel bites. I love the flavors of cinnamon and I frequently use it my recipes. beautiful photography!

  4. Pavani, those are amazing. Looking at those pics, am literalyy drooling here. They look so soft and spongy. Nice one.
