Pretzel Bites with Dipping Sauces

They’re baaaaack! It’s my favorite chefs, Katie and Allie from Goodie2Spoons, with an appetizer that is so good we literally ate them all by the time we finished shooting them. (That’s not a joke, guys. We ate them. All of them.) These delicious pretzel bites are just the snack for game day or to have around while you’re waiting for Thanksgiving dinner. They’re the perfect mix of doughy pretzel & salty sprinkles, and when you combine them with either the sriracha or the pesto dipping sauces they’re next level. 

Prep Time: 30 Minutes (Plus 1 hour for dough to rise)
Bake Time: 8-10 minutes

Pretzel Dough

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp butter (room temp)
  • 1 tsp table salt
  • 1 tbsp coarse kosher salt

Baking Soda Slurry

  • 2 cups warm water
  • ¼ cup baking soda

Heat milk to 110°F and remove from heat. (As soon as bubbles form around the edges of the sauce pan, about 2 minutes.) Pour milk into a separate bowl and add the yeast. Let the yeast soften in the milk for a few minutes.

Stir in the brown sugar and mix until dissolved. Add half of the flour and stir with a wooden spoon. Add diced butter and mix until it’s fully incorporated. Stir in the table salt and the remaining flour, and mix until a loose dough forms—dough may be sticky.

Sprinkle rolling surface with flour and knead the dough, adding flour if necessary, for about 5 minutes. The dough should be slightly sticky but smooth and consistent. Form the dough into a ball and place in a greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise in a warm place for at least 1 hour. After the dough has risen to double its size, remove from the greased bowl and separate it until smaller pieces on a floured surface.

Roll the smaller pieces into long snakes, and cut into 1 inch “bites”. Dunk each bite into the baking soda slurry and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Separate the bites about an inch apart, and sprinkle with coarse kosher salt.

Bake at 450°F for 8-10 minutes, rotating the baking sheet 180° half way through the baking time.

While the dough is rising, you can prepare these delicious dips!

Sriracha Dip

  • ¼ cup whipped cream cheese (room temp)
  • ¼ cup sour cream (room temp)
  • 1 tbsp sriracha

Combine ingredients until you get a smooth consistency.

Pesto Dip

  • ¼ cup whipped cream cheese (room temp)
  • ¼ cup sour cream (room temp)
  • 1 tbsp jarred pesto sauce

Combine ingredients until you get a smooth consistency.

Now, don’t be scared of trying these, y’all. It may sound fancy to make your own pretzel dough, but you’ll be masters in no time. And I’m dying to know which dip you like better! I think the sriracha dip is my jam, but then again sriracha anything is my jam. And now, can we all just high five Katie and Allie for this crazy good recipe?!
