How to make the dough
Preparation
Watch our dough preparation video below, or use the instructions that came with your baking kit for best results.
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Spray an area of the counter with baking spray and turn the risen dough out onto that portion of the counter. Do not spray or flour the area where you will roll pretzels.
  3. Cut strips of dough that measure 3” wide x 6” long.
  4. Lightly flour your counter and rolling pin. Roll the dough to 1/4” thick.
  5. Use cookie cutters or a knife to cut shapes into the dough or follow pretzel twisting directions (in the kit). Use your creativity!
  6. In a medium bowl, dissolve 1 baking soda packet in 4 cups of very hot water (150°F). Stir until nearly dissolved.
  7. Lightly coat a baking tray with nonstick spray. Pick up each pretzel shape and quickly dip into the baking soda solution. Place the pretzel on a towel to drain off the excess solution, and then place on the coated tray.
  8. Bake one tray at a time on the center rack in the preheated oven for 6 minutes or until golden brown. After 6 minutes, rotate tray 180° and bake for an additional 2-5 minutes or until golden brown. Baking times may vary.
  9. Once the pretzel shapes cool spread on icing and candy decorations.
