Let's Get Started
Step-by-Step Instructions



1.Start off by proofing your yeast

In a small bowl, combine your full yeast packet, 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of sugar, and 1 cup (236 ml) warm water. Stir gently. Let sit until foamy, about 5 minutes.


    2. Make Dough

    In a large bowl, add baking mix and cubed butter. Using your hands mix until crumbly. Add yeast mixture, and mix with your hands until a shaggy dough forms.

    3. Knead Dough

    Knead your dough for about 10-12 minutes. (If you're using a stand mixer, use the dough hook attachment to mix on medium for 8 minutes.)

    Dough should be a tight, elastic ball. Cover mixing bowl with plastic wrap, let rise in warm area until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.

    4. Roll in out

    Turn dough out onto a floured work surface (like your counter). Gently flatten with your hands, and then using a rolling pin, roll out to a larger rectangle about 12" x 14" (30 x 35 cm) in size. Cut into 12 strips about 1" (2.5 cm) wide by 14" (35 cm) long.

    5. Shape

    Using your hands, form each strip into a large U. Cross the ends over about two-thirds the way up for the bottom of the U. Bring the tips of the dough to the bottom of the U and press into the dough to seal. Flip over.

    Repeat with all strips of dough and lightly cover with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap once formed.

    6. Prepare Water Bath

     When done forming the dough, you’ll want to start heating up your water bath and preheating your oven to 450° F (232° C). For your water bath, bring 4 quarts (4 L) of water, malt, and 1/4 cup (59 ml) baking soda to a boil in a stockpot over medium-high heat.

    Note: To prevent boil-overs, it can be helpful to lower the heat when adding your baking soda. After it's fully incorporated into the hot water, you can raise the heat back to a full boil.

    Note: Your malt may become hardened in its packaging. That's totally fine. It will melt right away when added to the hot water.

    7. Cook

    Use a large slotted spoon or spider to add 1 or 2 pretzels to the water bath. Boil for 1 minute (pretzels will sink and then rise to the top). Remove pretzels with spoon to a clean kitchen towel and pat dry. Repeat for all pretzels.

    8. Finishing Touch

    Place pretzels on a baking sheet lined with a baking mat. Brush pretzels with melted butter and sprinkle pretzel salt over each pretzel.

    Bake 12 minutes until pretzels are a deep golden brown. Enjoy!
