If you're looking for an innexpensive recipe to serve and make for a ton of hungry football party goers, this is it! You can make this recipe with basic ingredients that you probably already have in the house. These are also fun to make for kid's lunches. I also love that you can flavor up the pretzels anyway you'd like using the same recipe. I made three of my favorite flavors, but you can get as create as you want with it! I think I'm going to try chocolate walnut pretzel next!



  1. Mix together yeast and warm water. Pour in sugar and combine.
  2. Pour in the melted butter and only 3 cups of the flour and combine. Whisk eggs together in a separate bowl, then add to bowl and mix well.
  3. After the eggs are completely mixed in, add the remaining 3 cups of flour and salt. If you have a hard time mixing the flour in, add a tablespoon of warm water at a time.
  4. Cover the dough with wax paper and a towel.
  5. Place it in a warmer area and allow it to rise for about 45 minutes.
  6. Add flour to the countertop or a pastry cloth.
  7. Tear pieces of the dough off and roll it into mini balls. (About 1 1/2 tablespoon sized)
  8. Form the dough balls into mini pretzels.
  9. Heat oven to 350 Degrees For the sea salt pretzels, add butter and seasalt.
  10. Mix cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Add a layer of butter over the top of the pretzel dough and sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top.
  11. Add a butter layer, parmesan cheese and sprinkle garlic powder over the garlic parmesan flavored pretzels.
  12. Bake 15-20 minutes.
  13. Mix 1/2 - 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon melted butter, 1/2 tablespoon milk for the icing. If it's too thick, add more milk. If it's too runny, add more powdered sugar.
  14. The sea salt pretzels are best when dipped in yellow mustard.
  15. The garlic parmeson pretzels are best served with pizza sauce
  16. Enjoy!
