Total time




  • 1 package active dry yeast (1/4 oz.)

  • 1 cup warm water

  • 2 Tbsp. softened butter

  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

  • large pot of boiling water

  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda

  • 4 Tbsp. melted butter

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 2 Tbsp. cinnamon

  • Cream Cheese Dipping Sauce
  • 8 oz. softened cream cheese

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar

  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract


  • In the bowl of your stand mixer add warm water and sprinkle yeast on top. Gently stir together and let yeast dissolve and start to foam for 10 minutes.
  • Once dissolved, add in softened butter, brown sugar, salt, and 2 cups of flour. Using a dough hook, mix on medium low until dough starts coming together.
  • Add in remaining flour and mix until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl and is no longer sticky.
  • Place in a lightly greased bowl, cover with a damp towel and let rise for 20 minutes or until doubled in size.
  • Punch the dough down a couple of times to remove any air pockets. Divide dough into 8 equal parts.
  • Using the palm and the heel of your hand, roll each piece of dough into a 12″ long rope. DO NOT FLOUR YOUR SURFACE! This will prevent the stretch of your dough.
  • Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut 1″ pieces out of your ropes.
  • Grease baking sheets with oil or line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • Par boil pretzel bites. Bring a large pot of water to boil and add baking soda. The baking soda bath gives pretzels their signature chewy crust. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!
  • Drop pretzel bites into baking soda bath in batches and leave for 1 minute. With a slotted spoon, remove pretzel bites and place on greased baking sheets.
  • Bake pretzel bites in the oven until golden brown. Remove bites and let cool for 10 minutes, and brush with melted butter.
  • Immediately place buttered pretzel bites into cinnamon sugar mixture and coat well.
  • Serve pretzel bites with cream cheese dipping sauce.
  • Cream Cheese Dipping Sauce
  • Combine softened cream cheese, heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl and mix together with a hand mixer until smooth.
