Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites
@partyfoodfavorites These dessert pretzel bites are so easy! Serve with a cream cheese frosting 👌🏻 same recipe as previoua video but dip in melted butter and roll in cinnamon sugar. #DoTheSmartThings #partyfood #cinnamonsugar #fingerfood #dessertsnack ♬ Sweet Child o’ Mine (Acoustic Guitar Version) – Mount Hayes
I was making the 3 ingredient pretzel bites and halfway through the batch, I realized that they would be even better turned sweet.
So I whipped up another batch and instead of sea salt and butter, I dipped the pretzels into butter and rolled them in a cinnamon sugar mixture.
They were so good.
The ingredients are easy to come by as they’re pantry staples.
The greek yogurt is plain 0% Greek yogurt (fat free greek yogurt). This recipe does not use self-rising flour as most simple homemade pretzels do, instead, I use a rising agent (baking powder).
There’s no yeast, no fuss, it’s a beginner recipe that’s a sure-fire hit.
For the Soft Pretzel Bites
- All purpose flour
- Baking powder
- 0% plain greek yogurt
Baking Soda Bath
- Baking soda
For the Toppings
- Melted butter
- Ground cinnamon
How to Make Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites
The instructions are simple.
Add the ingredients to a stand mixer and mix everything together until it forms a ball. I used the dough hook attachment on the stand mixer (as I do with all bread). If you have a hand mixer, you can use the dough hook that came with that.
Roll the ball into a dough, and divide it into four. Take out one section and set aside the rest.
Using your hands roll the dough out until long. Remember when you used to play with playdough and make snakes as a kid? Like that.
Cut the dough into little sections. They look like little pillows, cut 7-9 pillows out of each roll.
Dip each “pillow” into the baking soda bath, and lay on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes.
Dip the cooked pretzel bites into a small bowl of melted butter and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
You can store the cinnamon sugar soft pretzel bites in an airtight container and leave them on the counter for a few days.
They do dry out fast, so I would eat them within 1 – 2 days.
Dessert Dips to Serve With
You could whip up a cream cheese dip or frosting to dip these in (cream cheese, milk, powdered sugar, vanilla) or you could try the following dessert dips and dipping sauce:
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup 0% Greek yogurt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
Baking Soda Bath
- 1/2 cup hot water
- 1 tablespoon baking sofa
Cinnamon Sugar Topping
- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 4 tablespoons melted butter
- Preheat oven to 425F, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Using a mixer with a dough hook, mix the pretzel ingredients together until combined into a ball.
- Sprinkle flour on your work surface, and place the ball of dough on the counter. Work it a little and split it into 4 sections.
- Roll each section with your hands back and forth until they become long rolls of dough.
- Slice the dough into roughly 1" - 1 1/2" sections. I was able to get 8-9 pretzel bites out of each section.
- Dip each pretzel bite into the baking soda and water bath then place on the lined baking sheet.
- Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, and let cool on a rack.
- In a small bowl add the cinnamon and sugar together. Blend well.
- Dip each bite into the melted butter and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
