I previously did a post on homemade pretzels, this one is a continuation. This is a pre-boxed recipe that my mom bought a few months ago from Shop-Rite. It’s a prepackaged pretzle mix kit. The kit is made by Fun Pack Foods and is called Soft Pretzel Kit. It includes: a premade pretzel mix, a yeast packet, and salt.
The first step, empty the yeast into a bowl and combine it with water. After doing this pour out the contents of the pretzel mix.
The yeast is the longest part of the pretzel making. The recipe said the process would be done in 45 minutes.
After kneeding the yeast into a smooth bowl; I placed it in a bowl, covered it and put it in the dark, cool oven to rise.
I dipped the done pretzels into the mixture of baking soda and hot water. After dipping, I placed them on a cookie sheet.
Next, I placed the cookie sheet in the oven for 10 minutes; the recipe called for longer, but they came out perfect at that amount of time.
Another family favorite, these pretzels were not as sweet, but tasted more like a plain pretzel. My mom’s favorite, she enjoyed them with a hot cup of tea as her evening snack.
This next picture is of both the ‘buttery pretzel’ and the boxed pretzel.
