Homemade Pretzels and Pretzel Bites are a favorite treat for our family. We make them twice a year during a special weekend we spend watching and listening to General Conference from our church. My kids never let me forget the fact I need to make a large batch of these pretzel bites for this time of year. We gobble them up so fast you’ll want to make sure you make plenty! These pretzel bites are so chewy, tender, soft, squishy and perfection. Dip them in the mustard sauce below, in ranch, in cheese sauce or in cinnamon/sugar. No matter how you serve them, they will disappear right before your eyes.
This batch is a triple batch because that’s how many my family needs. Feel free to cut back the recipe as needed–but I promise, you will want them all! 🙂
Mustard Ranch Dipping Sauce
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
- 1 package dry ranch seasoning mix
- Dash salt & pepper to taste
- Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
Use the same dough recipe to make large, chewy pretzels. Use the same method as the bites, just roll the dough out into a long strip and twist the pretzel into a pretzel shape. Dip in the baking soda and bake as normal.
With the pretzel bites, we serve them with this Mustard Ranch Dipping Sauce. My friend made this for us the other day and it was so good we had to make it again with these pretzels. It was so good we even dipped dry, store-bought pretzels in it and it was even great. I used the leftover mustard sauce on sandwiches for the next couple days and it was awesome. Really, I’m sure a lot of things would be great in this sauce 😉 Enjoy!
