These Quick Soft Pretzel Bites with Herb Brushed butter are so addicting you better get ready to make more than one batch!


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.


The flavors you can make are endless


Better than any mall pretzels and you can shake them in cinnamon sugar, butter, and garlic, Italian herbs, and butter, Parmesan and garlic, even dip them in (my son's favorite way is melted cheese or Queso) but for a sweeter version try Nutella or Peanut Butter.


If you're like me I just love them in regular plain old mustard!


I am sure you have a favorite soft pretzel flavor, just get creative and make this recipe of pretzel bites your next favorite snack!


This simple recipe will make everyone happy and your friends jealous that yours are homemade from the kitchen and better than store-bought!
