Cup of Cheer!

When I was contacted by Auntie Anne’s Pretzels to participate in their #CupOfCheer, I couldn't wait!! I received my box just a few weeks ago, and the contents were amazing.

I knew that I wanted to make the pretzels with Hadleigh.  She loves helping me bake and this was a perfect opportunity for her to do some “hands on” baking J I usually am telling her the whole time we make brownies not to touch the batter, not to eat the batter….etc.
I prepped the dough and let it rise just like the directions said.  The kit comes with everything you need and the directions are very easy to read through.  Once the dough had risen, it was time to make some pretzels! I rolled a few long strings of dough (is that what you call it?!) and attempted to make the pretzel shape. I’m no expert, but I’d say they turned out decent.  Hadleigh ended up making “a bunch of pretzel babies” {aka pretzel bites}. J  
After popping them in the oven for 5 minutes ( – they were done.  I sprinkled a few with butter and salt, but most were sprinkled with butter and then the cinnamon sugar mixture (selfishly my favorite). They tasted so good and the girls loved them as well!

We have Auntie Anne’s pretzels around us, but I love that you can have the same great taste in your own home.  It was a nice plus to be able to incorporate some Cheer into our day by spending the time together making them.
