DIY Pretzels (Recipe)


I hate the mall. †I want to love it, I want to enjoy my time there, and I always convince myself that I’ll enjoy it before I arrive. But then, as soon as I walk in the door, all the people that don’t seem to care if they’re in your way, all the kiosk workers to get your attention and all the shopping companions that want to spend 45 minutes trying on jeans sour my experience.

As my shopping trips have increasingly been online, I realized there’s one thing I’m really missing about going to the mall — the soft pretzels! So, in that spirit, I decided to make my own and enjoy one in front of the glow of my laptop.

These pretzels, like their mall counterparts, can easily be topped with a ton of different flavors — check out the last page for topping ideas and the next page for the recipe!

Though my initial thought was to ignore this post because pretzels have so little nutritional benefit, I remembered that the last time I ate bread I had a food high for hours. So perhaps it is not so bad to give in here and there, and even better if you can control the ingredients by preparing it yourself.

What's the point of kosher salt in recipes, please? Does it make any difference?
