Another fabulous Superbowl party in the books! Really for me, it’s all about the people and the food. Oh, and the impromptu half time dance party to the Black Eyed Peas.The cooking crew pulled together to make quite a feast – BBQ chicken, cole slaw, cornbread, macaroni and cheese, two different kinds of chili, nachos, and of course, the football cookies.
I made these Homemade Soft Pretzel Bites
, and really liked how they turned out. I admit, I was intimidated at first because of all the steps. First, you make the dough, let it rise, and shape it into 1″ pieces. Then, you boil 15 pieces at a time for 30 seconds. Finally, you brush the bites with an egg wash and a sprinkle of salt, and bake them for 15 minutes. But you are rewarded well when these come out of the oven and cool for just a minute. They are salty and addictive! And although the game of the evening was football, the taste reminds me of the soft pretzel that you might get at a baseball game. Or maybe I was just wishing that baseball season would get here a little faster. Either way, these pretzels are the perfect project for a weekend afternoon, and make a great snack!
