Easy Bake Oven Pretzels

Sharing is caring!

These Easy Bake Oven pretzels are fast and very easy to make. I like to make these when we have guests over but my brother and I usually eat them all.  I also love to make pretzel bites to have as a little treat or snack.

Easy Bake Oven pretzels are not too sweet like my Sugar Cookies Easy Bake Oven RecipeOrange Cookies or Easy Bake Oven Brownie Recipe but they have a nice sweet and savory taste. Great for dipping (see my dipping ideas below)and sharing all year long.

Are Pretzels Good For You?

Pretzels are lower in fat than chips but still high in calories and salt. That is why we sadly don’t eat pretzels very often in our house. The upside of these tasty easy bake oven pretzels is that they are small so you can eat the whole batch! I just do more backflips in gymnastics.

How Do You Fold A Pretzel

It’s actually really easy to fold a pretzel:

  1. Divide your dough in half until you have six pieces of dough;
  2. Roll them all into little logs about ¼ inch thick and about 3-4 inches long;
  3. Create a letter “U” with each piece;
  4. Cross the ends over and then fold them over onto the loop (the middle of the”U”).

It sounds hard but once you do a few it becomes super easy. Just keep trying you will be able to do it. Then you can show your friends this recipe and how to fold it.

Egg Wash For Pretzels

When you are making pretzels you would normally brush some egg wash on them to make them shiny, make the salt stick and help give them a crunchy, crisp texture.  You can even make scrambled eggs with the leftover egg wash.  Stay tuned for my out of this world scrambled eggs recipe!

How to Make Easy Bake Oven Pretzels From Scratch

Easy Bake oven pretzels are one of my favorite snacks. They are fun to make with your family or with friends. This is one of the easiest ways to prepare homemade soft pretzels and the results are super delicious.

  1. Mix all dry ingredients and set aside
  2. Add butter, crumble with a fork and add a bit of milk at a time to the mix until it turns into a dough
  3. Mix well and knead the dough
  4. The soft pretzel dough is a family recipe that only needs to rest for 10 minutes before shaping
  5. Shape dough and bake

How to Make Pretzel Bites

Pretzel bites are just smaller pretzels. Don’t bother shaping the dough after rolling them up. Just chop’em up into bite-size pieces (about an inch long) and bake these pretzel bites in your Easy-Bake Oven.

What’s a Good Pretzel Dip

One of my favorite sweet ideas is to dip in butter, and then dip in a mixture of cinnamon sugar!

Here’s my list of yummy dips:

  • Honey mustard (like McDonald’s restaurant)
  • Cream cheese
  • Nacho cheese
  • Ranch dressing
  • Marinara sauce
  • Melted butter
