Bread Machine Pretzels
Layer ingredients into your bread machine as directed in your manual.
1 1/8 cup water
3 cups all purpose flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
Set machine to dough cycle and let it do all the work. Once complete, grease your work surface and turn out dough. Let rest while you get 2 quarts of water to boil with 1/2 cup of baking soda. Also preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cut and shape pretzels into your desired shapes. Place each piece into the boiling water for 10-15 seconds. Arrange them on a baking sheet and top with salt crystals.
Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes. The longer they are in the oven, the more that dark brown color will develop.
Pretzel bites are great as is, but dipped in cheese sauce or ranch is super yummy too!
