These pretzel bites are incredibly yummy, but best of all they’re frugal and EASY to make. They taste a little bit like donut balls or monkey bread, but the boiling makes them chewy like a pretzel. Here’s how to make them home:
- One loaf Rhodes Frozen Bread Dough (one loaf costs about a dollar)
- Cinnamon and Sugar
Start by tearing off or cutting pieces of the bread dough and rolling into 1′ balls (I just cut mine with a knife). Place on a greased cookie sheet and let the dough rise until doubled in size. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Next, bring a pot of water to a rolling boil and toss in about a dozen dough balls until they rise and puff up (about 45 seconds). Remove and drain on a layer of paper toweling. Don’t worry if they look funny, they’ll puff up in the oven.
Place pretzel bites on a greased cookie sheet and bake for about 15 minutes, until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly, then brush with butter. Roll in cinnamon and sugar and enjoy!
