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! 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 chocolates…you have to eat what you get. Mix yours up too, for a little added fun!
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! 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.
*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.
