We had plans to go to a housewarming party to celebrate two of our good friends’ new place together and I wanted to bring a snack that was quick, easy, and could be made with whatever we already had in the house. Pretzels it was! I wanted to try a new recipe than from the last time I made soft pretzels and since Alton Brown knows all, I was pretty sure his was going to be even better than the last one I used. And then, it hit me, Pretzel bites. Way better for a party finger food! Win.So instead of rolling the dough out and shaping it into a pretzel shape, I cut the dough ropes into little bite sized pieces.Meanwhile, I brought a large bowl of water mixed with baking soda to par boil the bites before going in to the oven.Then on to a parchment paper lined baking sheet, a brush of an egg wash, and sprinkled with some kosher salt.Baked in the oven for 12-15 minutes at 450° until they’re nicely browned and fluffy little bites of salty pretzels!While the rest of the pretzel bites were baking to deliciousness, I whipped up a hot honey mustard dipping sauce!Super simple. Just all the ingredients into a sauce pan to cook until all the flavors meld together and it’s thickened.Once all the bites were cooked, we had ourselves a delicious party snack! Soft pretzel bites with a delicious hot and sweet honey mustard sauce. So good that our LB declared that he needed more of the mustard in his life!
The perfect snack to also bring to Angie’s Fiesta Friday!
