Confession.

The day we made these, I had about 20 as soon as it hit the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

And this was all before 9:07am.

But don’t judge me too hard. My food stylist and her assistant had just as much.

Maybe I had more. But that’s irrelevant here.

What is relevant here is that you need to make these asap.

Because there’s no rising. There’s no kneading.

There’s no use of yeast here.

We’re using pizza dough as our base instead.

Because guys. It’s New Year’s Eve.

And because we really need these warm pretzel bites coated in that crisp, sweet cinnamon-sugar mixture to end 2017.

We just do.

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites

The absolute quickest and easiest way to make homemade pretzel bites! No rising or kneading here! And it is the best when served warm. You cannot beat that!

30 minutes15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 pounds pizza dough, store-bought or homemade, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup baking soda
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
  3. Working on a lightly floured surface, cut dough into 4 equal strips. Roll each strip into a long rope, about 12-14 inches; cut into 1-inch pieces.
  4. Heat 6 cups water and baking soda in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; working in batches, drop dough pieces until slightly puffed and dimpled, about 30 seconds. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain well.
  5. Place dough pieces onto the prepared baking sheet, about 1/2-inch apart. Brush with egg.
  6. Place into oven and bake until golden brown, about 9-12 minutes.
  7. Working in batches, combine warm pretzel bites, butter and cinnamon-sugar mixture until evenly coated.
  8. Serve warm.

    Literally. Gone. Before all were made. Family members were grabbing out of the bowl as I made them and were gone by the time I finished the last one. SOOOO GOOD.

    So delicious 

  4. The baking soda made them taste REALLY salty and not very appetizing. I would suggest not using the baking soda 🙂 

    • The first time I made these, they did not come out too salty. The second time, they were too salty. The first time I used Arm & Hammer baking soda and the second time I used a store brand. After reading your comment, I checked the sodium levels and Arm & Hammer has less sodium, so maybe that played a factor? I will use a little less baking soda next time to see if that makes a difference.

      Soo Good!

  5. These look great! A fun recipe to do with kids I’m thinking! Do you really combine toppings as stated in step 7 or dipping in butter & rolling in cinnamon sugar?

  6. Oh these look fantastic. My kids will ADORE them! I’ll try them soon and post an update…

  7. I had already resolved not to change out of pajamas/leave the house today. May have to rethink that and go buy pizza dough. Happy New Year!
