Recipe for Soft Pretzel Bites. These are a favorite at Super Bowl parties! Great for dipping in homemade nacho cheese sauce from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

I love Super Bowl parties because of all the delicious finger foods like these fun to make Homemade Pretzel Bites.

We love to dip the Soft Pretzel Bites in Homemade Nacho Cheese Sauce or Chili Queso Dip. Dear lord have mercy on my thighs! 

These are perfect for game day snacking or your next party.

Here's how I make the recipe for Pretzel Bites:


In a mixer fitted with a dough hook combine:
  • 1 1/2 cups Warm Water no hotter than 110 degrees
  • 1 tablespoon Honey
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons Active Dry Yeast


Allow yeast to sit until it becomes foamy about 5-8 minutes.

Flour and Butter added to Soft Pretzel Bites yeast.

Add: 
  • 3 tablespoons Melted Butter
  • 3 cups All-Purpose Flour. 

Soft Pretzel Bite Dough kneaded and resting to allow yeast to develop.

Knead until combined. Cover dough and allow to rest for 15 minutes for yeast to develop. 

Remaining Flour and Salt added to Soft Pretzel Bite Dough.

Add remaining: 
  • 1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Salt

Soft Pretzel Dough being kneaded in mixing bowl.

Knead on medium speed until firm and smooth about 5-7 minutes.

Soft Pretzel Bite Dough in a greased bowl.

Place dough in a well grease bowl and cover. 

Allow dough to rise until doubled in size about 1 hour.

Soft Pretzel Dough divided into 8 equal sized pieces.

Cut dough into 8 equal sized pieces.


Roll each piece into a 20" long rope. Cut rope every 1". Repeat with remaining dough.


At this point allow dough to rest for 20 minutes and rise or place in refrigerator to finish later.

If refrigerated, remove from refrigerator 40 minutes before boiling in baking soda bath to bring to room temperature.

Egg and water whisked together for Pretzel Bites.

Add 1 whole Egg and 1 tablespoon water to a small bowl. Whisk until well combined.

Baking Soda being poured in boiling water to cook Pretzel Bites in.

In a large pot bring 10 cups water to a boil. Add 2/3 cup baking soda.


Add about 8-10 pretzel bites at a time to the boil water. 

Allow to boil for about 30 seconds and remove with a slotted spoon to a parchment lined baking sheet.

Boiled Pretzel Bites brushed with egg wash and sprinkled with coarse salt.

Brush each Pretzel Bite with egg wash and sprinkle generously with course sea salt. 

Bake in a 425 degree oven for 12-16 minutes or until lightly brown on the outside. 


These are delicious plain or with a little melted butter brushed over the top and amazing with a little Homemade Nacho Cheese Dip

Pretzel Bites recipe baked in the oven are a family favorite for dipping in nacho cheese sauce.

I love the little bites because it prevents double dipping if you're sharing dip.
