Soft Pretzel Bites

Soft Pretzel Bites... Salty or CInnamon Sugar these are SO AMAZING!!

These Soft Pretzel Bites are one of the best things I have ever made. Crispy on the outside, super soft on the inside…

Like most of America I am addicted to those dang mall pretzels.  It’s not really about the pretzels so much, but those dang tubs of Pretzel Nuggets!! ESPECIALLY the ones coated in a buttery, cinnamon sugar. Gah, so good.

In my mall, the cart resides right outside the Victoria’s Secret…so yeah, let me face plant in a tub of pretzel nuggets and then go try on pretty underclothes. Someone is gonna lose in this situation and I can assure you it ain’t Auntie Annie. Sorry husband.


So the solution to this whole situation is make the very delicious Soft Pretzel Bites in the privacy of my own home. I don’t feel judgement from my sensible and comfortable drawer of Hanes Her Way.

Soft Pretzel Bites...Cinnamon Sugar or Salty BUttered. Dip them in chocolate for an over the top snack!

While I was initially a little scared to attempt pretzel making (OMGyeast) I realized it ain’t no thing.

Sure it takes a little time, but it just gives you a reason to stay home in your pjs. Sorry, can’t go out today. There’s proofing happening.

And can I tell you the result is so beyond worth it. Especially when you make some chocolate sauce to dip the pretzels in…as if they need it.

Soft Homemade Pretzel Bites. Easy to make and SO ADDICTING!

I made some Salty and some Cinnamon Sugar. It’s all about balance friends.


So hop over to Imperial Sugar for all the recipe details.

Oh my gosh, Shelly. These look amazing! Love that you went the extra mile with the chocolate sauce. Everything is better with chocolate! Now all I want to do is sit at home in my eating pants (no skimpy under garments please!!) and have pretzels!

Jessica @ Sweet Menu

I have never HEARD of pretzel bites – we serious lack in the pretzel department in Australia – but these look incredible!!! Totally going to buy them next time I’m in the US, meanwhile I can now make them at home 🙂

All the years…why have I never thought about the proofing excuse? Consider baking with yeast my new BFF. Love these!

Karen @ Sugartown Sweets

So, before I hop on over to Imperial Sugar, I have to tell you these look amazing! Can’t wait to try these with my grandkiddos! Two of my older gkids love getting into the kitchen with Grandma..they’re gonna love these. 🙂


This made me laugh out loud! Which I totally needed!
These look great, but thanks for the giggles.


Are you kidding me? The best thing you’ve EVER MADE??? I have been reading for a while now – if that’s so I think I have to go make them right this minute . . .

These look like the perfect fall snack!


OMG! I must make these!!!

Anna @ Crunchy Creamy Sweet

Love these pretzel bites! So much easier than big pretzels! Sharing!


These look divine! Do you think I could make these without the brown sugar without ruining the taste so I can dip in cheese sauce or a garlic parmesan sauce?


These look awesome!!!


These look SO yummy and you had me laughing out loud a couple times while reading about Victoria’s Secret vs Hanes Her Way 😉 Thanks for sharing! Cristin


I need these ASAP!

Jocelyn @BruCrew Life

Love the reason to stay home…gotta watch the dough rise. Jammie day at its best! And chocolate sauce for pretzel bites…heck, yeah!!!!


I will have to get over my fear of using yeast and try these. One of my kid loves the ones you buy frozen.

Love your site!

These look absolutely amazing & I can’t wait to try them! But when I look at the recipe on the Imperial Sugar site, it calls for 1 packet of dry yeast (3/4 ounces). But 1 packet of dry yeast is 1/4 ounce, the strip of 3 packets would be 3/4 ounce. One of those is a typo – I’m going to guess that 1 packet (not 3) is correct?
