For those who love garlic knots which is a family favorite of ours, here is a great little soft garlic pretzel that is every bit as good and so easy to make. You will not believe how quick and easy these come together, no rising the dough, just mix, cut, boil 30 seconds, bake and eat (or use your favorite dip) but you really don't need a thing! They are fabulous the way they are.
A delicious snack anytime of the day!
Whether you love to dip soft pretzels in mustard, melted cheese or Nutella or even plain, these are the perfect easiest homemade dough you will ever make! A great snack for the kids and you can change it easily with brushing some different flavorings on top additions in the dough. Some people like them with dipping sauces and some more suggestions that I've made below! Very versatile and easy to make. They are perfect just plain but for an added change try the butter and garlic flavored!
