Homemade soft pretzels that taste exactly like the ones you’d get at a ballpark – this is definitely a recipe you’ll want to bookmark for the next snow day or lazy weekend afternoon!
I’m really proud of this pretzel recipe. It took me a few tried to get it right, but the final version is perfect! The chewy, golden brown crust cracks under your teeth as you bite into it but the insides are fluffy and soft. They taste exactly like pretzels should.
I posted this recipe over on SheKnows.com as part of a collaboration with Hidden Valley. Pretzels and ranch dip are a classic combination, but I also love them with spicy mustard or with cheese spread (my recipe for that is also over on SheKnows.)
If you prefer something less traditional, you can substitute cinnamon and sugar for the coarse salt or add 1 tablespoon each sesame and poppy seeds and 1 teaspoon each of dried onion and dried garlic for “everything” pretzels that are awesome dipped in cream cheese.
