This isn’t pretzel logic.
Attention all pretzel lovers I have the easiest recipe that you’re going to love.
During the Blizzard of 2016 I had the chance to do some experimenting in the kitchen and as the self-proclaimed snicker extraordinaire that I am I combined my love of soft pretzels with my love of snacks.
That product of that combo is my baked pretzel bites.
The recipe couldn’t be simpler so I’m here to share it with you in all its glory.
Now, I’m new to this whole blogging thing so I didn’t take a perfect picture of the pretzel stick in its bag. It’s shocking, I know! You’re probably thinking, “Maria, you’re so hard on yourself! That’s such a high-quality image of a plastic bag!” But, I feel I owe it to you to let you know that when I took this picture, I had already cut the pretzels and realized, “OH, maybe I should have taken a picture of that!”
The first step is to preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Next grab a cookie sheet and spray it with non-stick spray. Now that the busy work is done its on to the prep work we go!
All I did was cut the pretzel stick into about a half inch slices.
From there I gave the pretzel bites a little spritz of spray butter. Because, what’s better than a buttery and delicious bite of pretzel?
Anyways, since I was in total experimental mode I flipped my Emeril switch and BAM! I threw some shredded low-fat cheese on a couple lucky bites.
After all the pretzel bites were either cheesed or buttered off they went into their warm nesting place – AKA the oven for about 20 minutes.
And here’s what I came away with!
I paired these pretzel bites with Harry & David’s honey mustard and it was a match made in snack heaven.
