Today I’m sharing the easiest and tastiest recipe for GIANT Soft Pretzels. After seeing how simple and delicious these pretzels are, you may never stop at Auntie Anne’s again 😉
Oh, it has been QUITE a while since I last posted and so I thought, “why not make my return on pretzel day?” And here I am, sharing a delicious and easy recipe for Giant Soft Pretzels (and beer cheese)! Are you drooling yet or nah?
I got the inspiration to make these soft pretzels on my initial watch of The Office. Yes, my initial watch. I did not watch The Office when it was on. I did not binge it when it first came to Netflix. Nope. I watched The Office for the first time in 2018.
*insert shame bell here*
But let’s not dwell on the past and the fact that I could’ve had this show in my life earlier. No. Let’s look ahead to the future and the future is pretzels. Giant. Soft. Chewy. Salty. Pretzels.
These soft pretzels are so, so easy to make. All you need is an hour and 9 ingredients, most of which you already have in your pantry. You’ll also need a few key tools: a large stock-pot, a slotted spatula, baking sheets, and maybe a baking mat if you have one. That’s it. Really. You’ll need a few more ingredients for your beer cheese but you likely already have everything in your fridge and/or pantry for that, as well. See what I mean, you guys? EASY.
These soft pretzels are perfect for Pretzel Day or, you know, FOOTBALL SUNDAY. Like when the Bears play the Patriots this weekend, anyone?! Make ’em ahead and once they get to room temp, store them in the freezer in an airtight container for MAXIMUM FRESHNESS. When you’re about ready to serve, turn the oven to 350F and warm ’em up for 5-8 minutes, depending on size 😉
