Soft Beer Pretzels

Published On May 9, 2013 | By Jonathan Melendez | Snacks

Everyone loves a good soft pretzel. These giant savory snacks remind us of our childhood and take us back to those excursions at the zoo, the circus, the amusement park, or even trips to New York, where they can be found on almost every street corner.

But, just when you thought they couldn’t get any better, we went ahead and added beer right into the dough. Talk about a recipe makeover! The subtle flavor that the addition of the brew adds to this snack transforms it into the perfect treat that you’ll want to serve for happy hour and everything else in between. Best served warm with a giant pitcher of beer, these pretzels are one snack that you won’t be able to get enough of.

You’ll find these pretzels to be the perfect combination of textures. They’re crusty on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. Sprinkle them with sesame seeds or coarse salt for that authentic look and taste, and dip them in spicy honey mustard sauce for an extra kick of flavor.

    Is there anything better than a soft pretzel with a cold beer? I don’t think so…

    This recipe calls for beer in the mix, but I think the real star–and twist–is the cayenne pepper in the dough! Who’d a thunk it?
