How to make the dough
Preparation
Watch our dough preperation video below, or use the instructions that came with your baking kit for best results.
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Yields: 20 Jalapeño Pretzel Poppers.
  2. Follow directions included with the baking kit through Step 1 of the TWIST section.
  3. During the dough-resting phase, drain and chop jalapeños and add to softened cream cheese. Chop bacon slices and add to cream cheese mixture. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, dissolve the baking soda packet in 4 cups very hot tap water and stir until almost completely dissolved.
  5. Cut off a two-tablespoon sized piece of dough and roll into a ball. Flatten ball on flat surface (no spray or flour) with bottom of a glass to form a 2” circle.
  6. Place 1 rounded teaspoon of cream cheese mixture onto dough circle and pull up all sides to form a sack. Twist top of sack to pinch dough and trim off excess top with a knife.
  7. Dip the filled dough sacks in baking soda mixture and drain on paper towel. Top with a pinch of chopped fresh garlic and place on sprayed baking sheet.
  8. Repeat with remaining dough. Bake 1 tray at a time, on center rack of preheated oven for 5 minutes. Turn and bake an additional 2 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
