Whole Wheat Soft Pretzels

First off (and before I forget – because it seems like that’s all my brain does now), I just want to thank you all for your kind comments and messages about our little addition to the family.  Thank you SO much!  Besides all the kids and I coming down with a cold and running to what seems like a million appointments and errands in the last week we’ve finally settled into as much of a routine as a newborn can so you’ll be seeing a little more of me Whole Wheat Soft Pretzels

On to the food!  I just realized that this is the last day I could post these!  OK, not really.  But April is soft pretzel month and since I hardly ever do things on time, like posts for specific holidays or other occasions, I thought I should really jump on this.  Yes, on the last day of the month.  I never said I wasn’t a procrastinator Whole Wheat Soft Pretzels

So, soft pretzels are pretty awesome.  They are a ton of fun to make with the kids.  They certainly don’t need to be perfectly shaped, as evidenced by my pretzels.  And of course they’re super fun to eat with the kids, and what kid doesn’t like dipping?  We like to dip ours in hummus, but no matter what you dip them in, they’re so good.  Just make sure you have the right kind of coarse salt.  Which we actually didn’t, but they turned out good anyways even if they could have used the salt on top.

They do last for a few days just on the counter in a sealed bag or container.  I’m sure they could probably be frozen too, although I haven’t tried.  Better yet, boil them, then freeze.  And then pull them out and bake them until perfectly golden.  I haven’t tried that(although right now I’m wishing I had some ready to go in the freezer) but I’m sure it would work well since I’ve done that with bagels before.
