Auntie Anne’s Pretzel Kit and Giveaway

Auntie Anne's Pretzel KitAuntie Anne's is known for their delicious pretzels.  Did you know that they also make a Pretzel Kit?  I received one of their wonderful kits to review.  Auntie Anne's Pretzel KitThe whole process is a little time consuming because you have to make the dough and then wait for it to rise.  It also takes a bit of practice to make the pretzels the right shape.  The directions have you work with the dough until it is just thin enough to twist into a  perfect pretzel.  When we made our pretzels though, we didn’t roll them out that long because we didn’t have enough room and they turned out ok.  Auntie Anne's Pretzel Kit BakedI thought I’d share some pictures of the pretzels with you!  The kit comes with a packet of salt and a packet of cinnamon/sugar!  The picture above is of the salt pretzels prior to baking (you put the salt on before you bake).  The picture to the left is of some pretzels and a bread stick after they were baked (we were going to put the cinnamon/sugar on and you do that after they bake).  Don’t they look yummy already?  The directions say to put butter on them so the cinnamon/sugar mixtures sticks to it.  However, I can safely say that these are so good you don’t have to add anything to them!  Cinnamon Sugar PretzelMy boyfriend actually preferred them plain!  I did add some cinnamon/sugar to my stick and the remaining pretzels on this tray.  Here is a photo of one of the pretzels with cinnamon/sugar on it!   YUMMY!  They were truly delicious! 

Now, for the salty pretzels!   I added some butter on top of the pretzel after it came out of the oven (as per the directions) and they were delicious!  Buttery Salt PretzelThe combination of warm pretzel with melted butter and some salt was truly amazing! 

Even though it was time-consuming and required some skill for twisting (which luckily my boyfriend had), the pretzels are worth it!  I would make them again!  It’s a good thing these are not in stores, because I would buy one every couple of months (at least). 

Now that your mouth is watering…
