Auntie Anne's Pretzels

Is anyone else a sucker for mall pretzels?
They are one of my favorite treats.
But...they are kind of expensive.
And when I'm buying pretzels for the whole family, it adds up.
I've tried making them at home, but they just turned out tasting like pretzel-shaped bread.

My kids love pretzels so much that when Saxon went on a "date" with Aunt Brittany, the only thing he wanted to do was go to the mall and get pretzels.

The other day at Wal-mart, I found this:
Auntie Anne's at Home Baking Kit.

I decided to give it a try.
It was really easy.
Everything was in little packages and the only extra thing I needed was warm water.
It even came with salt and a cinnamon sugar mix...
When the first tray was done baking, I broke off the corner of one to give it a try.
Oh wow...
It was amazing!
Melt in your mouth amazing...
It had that perfect buttery soft flavor.
We devoured them within minutes.
We did realize though, that the key is to eat them hot and steamy right out of the oven.
When they cool off completely, they taste like cold mall pretzels.
Not bad, but not as amazing as steaming hot.
My kids ate the salt pretzels dipped in cream cheese for lunch and cinnamon pretzel for dessert.
Just thinking about it is making me crave pretzels! :)

  1. Oh, I have to look for this. I love mall pretzles and the ones I've bought in the freezer are just not as good.
