We make home made pretzels every fall and our kids love them! I'll bookmark this recipe to give it a try. We still haven't found "the" recipe yet so we're willing to give a new one a try.

I made these yesterday and they were pretty darn incredible.  I like my pretzels a bit on the sweet side so next time i might add another tablespoon of brown sugar.

I just made up a batch and they were good! My picky little eaters even loved them. I've tried a few other recipes before but I will be sticking with this one!

My mom taught me how to do these when I was 12. They taste every bit of good has they look. You did a nice job on these.

I tried making pretzles once and it ended in tears and tragedy. I should try again now that I'm not 10 years old anymore

pretzels are awesome! we make them every year for our oktoberfest party using the "mall pretzels" recipe on allrecipes.com. except now we've graduated up to using a lye bath instead of baking soda before cooking them. you can order food-grade lye online. if you get it, the ratio is 40 grams of lye to 1 liter of water, stir until dissolved. the pretzels sit in the bath for about 15-30 seconds, and then you place them on a tray and bake them. try not to get the lye on your hands, it is a bit caustic, but it won't kill you. we think it makes them taste more like pretzels and as a bonus, they also seem to get browner and shinier than with baking soda. try it!

I made 3 batches of these today!
It's a wonderful recipe for basic pretzels that you can really spice up. The second batch I made was Wheat apple-cinnamon:
 substituted reg. flour for wheat flour, substituted milk for 1/2 cup of warm applesauce and 1/2 cup of warm water, added 4 tablespoons of brown sugar, added a tablespoon or so of cinnamon.

followed rest of directions as usual. I know I used more flour on this batch than the regular one..These were really lovely! Also, instead of salt on the top I sprinkled them with regular sugar before they went into the oven...

The third batch was garlic-cheese:
  used half wheat flour and half bread flour, substituted brown sugar for a pinch of regular sugar, added a teaspoon of garlic salt, added about 2 tablespoons of minced garlic (We like our stuff REALLY garlicky, it'll be just as good if you add less) and a few handfuls of shredded cheddar cheese.
topped with more shredded cheese and some kosher salt before baking..


How did you get your pretzels so pretty? My pretzel shaping skills need some SERIOUS work.

Wow these look GREAT.  I copied down your recipe and plan on trying it out later tonight.  Nothing like warm pretzels on a cold dreary night.
