Stuffed Soft Pretzel Bites

I love soft pretzels and thought I would try my hand at making them from frozen dough.  Super easy and fun!  I stuffed them with everything!  Chocolate chips, colby/jack cheese, hot dogs, rolos, broccoli and cheese,  and even chocolate chip cookie dough.  Yes, I did!  ~smiles~  Only thing was....they got mixed up and I didn't know what was in each one!  LOL  We had fun guessing and biting into each one.  It was like a box of chocolates.  You just don't know what you are getting until you dive in and take a bite out of it.  And, just like have to eat what you get.  ~smile~  Mix yours up too, for a little added fun!  Enjoy!

Stuffed Soft Pretzel Bites

18 to 36 Rhodes Bake-N-Serve White Dinner Rolls 
whatever you want to stuff in the bites
6 cups water
1/2 cup baking soda
1 egg beaten plus one teaspoon water*
kosher salt or cinnamon sugar


Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. 
Thaw dough,  once thawed but still cold   Cut each roll in half.

The boys wanted cookie dough inside!  ~smile~ To stuff, stretch the dough a little bit and put a tiny bit of filling on dough.

Fold over and seal completely.  Place seal side down to rise until doubled in size.
Once risen, heat water to boil in a large pot.  
Carefiully, add baking soda.  It will make the water RISE and may overflow if added all at once.
Check to make certain bites are sealed and add a couple at the time

Boil, in a gentle boil, for 30 seconds..flipping at flip and cook another 5 to 15 seconds.  Remove with a slotted spoon. Drain over a paper towel and put on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper right away. 
*Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven 6 to 8 minutes, depending how brown you like them.
 Once done, take out of oven.  Turn oven to broil.  Spray with margarine. Sprinkle with kosher salt and put under the broiler until  a dark brown.  Leave oven door opened a crack so you can watch them carefully.  They will brown very fast and can burn if you are not constantly watching them.  This gives them a hard, buttery and salty top.  Enjoy!  

*Alternate method....Brush tops with egg wash.  Generously coat with kosher salt before baking and skip spraying margarine, adding salt and broiling.  Cook as directed.
