Homemade Pretzels

Pretzels are to Germany as rice is to China, so it was almost obligatory that we make a batch of our own last week! They were fantastic! Almost as good as those little twists of heaven that the mall shops sell. A&G had a lot of fun helping too, dumping ingredients, rolling the “snakes” not so much waiting for them to rise, but the eating of our carb-y treats more than made up for it I think! Here’s the recipe if you also want to partake in some delicious German culture with us. πŸ™‚
