My Mom’s Homemade Hot Pretzel Recipe

Hot Pretzel Recipe

Last night I made my mom’s Hot Pretzel recipe from her days as a preschool teacher and director. Yes, this recipe is so easy that she made it with three and four year olds! These yummy treats go together quickly – despite the fact that they contain yeast, there is no kneading or rising needed.

They make a great starchy side to a meal or a fun snack.
