Easy Pretzel Bites Recipe


What goes together better than pretzels and honey mustard? Not much that I can think of. Our Easy Pretzel Bites Recipe is about to be the ultimate summer snack with their salty, crisp outside and tender, fluffy inside!

This recipe technically feeds 8 people; however, I would recommend making a batch and a half because their bite-sized pieces are just too easy to pop into your mouth as you work, study, or entertain guests.

How do you keep pretzel bites warm (without drying them out)?

If you are making them fresh, I recommend lightly wrapping the pretzel bites in tinfoil and place in a slow cooker covered on “warm.” The foil is important in distributing the heat amongst all the stacked pretzel bites without them drying out. If you don’t have a slow cooker, then you can do the same in your oven. Simply wrap all the pretzel bites tightly in foil, sealing the edges together, then place in your oven on “keep warm,” or 170F.

What sauces do you pair with pretzel bites?

  • honey mustard
  • coarse dijon mustard
  • cream cheese (whipped with a drizzle of honey)
  • nacho cheese or queso
  • marinara sauce
  • ranch dressing
  • chipotle ketchup
  • artichoke & spinach dip
  • (for a sweeter option) peanut butter & chocolate sauce

Now, it’s time to grab our aprons and begin baking deliciousness! ’till next time! xxL

Easy Pretzel Bites Recipe



  • 1 1/2 cups Warm Water
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 2 1/4 tsp. Active Dry Yeast about 1 packet
  • 4 1/2 cups Flour
  • 2 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Egg, preferably room temperature
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 cup Baking Soda
  • Coarse Sea Salt, for topping


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk together the warm water, brown sugar, and active dry yeast. Set aside at room temperature for 5 minutes, or unitl foamy.
  • On medium speed, mix in the olive oil, egg, and salt. Using the kneading attachment, gradually add in the flour. Knead for 5-7 minutes, until smooth and pliable. If the dough seems too sticky, gradually add more flour one tablespoon at a time, up to 1/3 cup.
  • Transfer to a boil that is lightly greased with olive oil, cover with a damp kitchen cloth or saran wrap, then set aside to rise until doubled in a warm environment, about 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 425F.
  • Punch down the dough, then transfer to a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces, then roll each piece into a long strip, about 1 – 1.5" diameter thickness. Cut each long strip into bite-sized pieces.
  • Add the baking soda to a large pot of water (3-4 quarts), then bring it to a boil over high heat.
  • Boil a handful of pretzel bites at a time, using a slotted spoon to remove them onto a pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Brush with an egg or olive oil wash, then top with coarse sea salt.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce!
