One of my New Year’s resolutions was to cook more and new things. I also wanted to master Thai cooking-but um well yeah. Not doing too well with that! Anyway, I have been cooking a lot more, and it helps that I’m keeping a (long!) list of recipes to try.
Last weekend I had a bit of time so I tackled a few on my list and I’ll be posting about them over the next few days.
This recipe comes from an amazing blogger called “17 and Baking”. If you click through, you’ll see just how talented this lovely lady is, in both food and photography!
These little bits are a doddle to make, require no cooking (yay!) and are totally delicious.
I ran around town trying to find plain salted pretzels. I could only find ‘mustard & honey’ or ‘sour cream & chive’ flavoured ones which somehow I don’t think would have worked. Eventually I found a mixed bag of plain pretzel-type things so I used those. That’s why there’s a weird triangle pretzel in the middle. He’s a freak. So are the ones that look like drumsticks.
I made a bit of a mistake with the recipe. I only made a half batch. They didn’t even last that evening. Boo! Silly me! BUT I found some plain pretzels today and I’m going to make a big batch this weekend. Yum!
The only problem with them that I foresee will be that the pretzels won’t stay crisp and crunchy for very long. I imagine that they are the type of thing you’d serve on the day they are made. A brilliant recipe for kids!
