These pretzels are boiled in baking soda solution for that unique chewy texture.

I served these with mustard for dipping at a Grey Cup party and they went over really well. They are quite simple to make but will really impress your guests.

This recipe makes 16 palm sized soft pretzels.

Step 1: Materials

1-1/2 C Water
1 Tbsp Sugar
1 Packet Yeast
1 tsp Salt
1 Tbsp Oil or Butter
~4-1/2 C Flour
1/2 C Baking Soda
Course Salt

Punch down dough and divide into 16 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a rope 16 to 20 inches long. To form pretzel shape, fold rope in half, twist twice and fold over. Press lightly to stick everything together and place directly into boiling water.
