    I had a very difficult time with the dough being too sticky and unable to make a “pretzel” shape. However, I dropped them in balls in a greased muffin tin / they were amazing!

    Turned out just like the mall pretzels, kids loved them. Planning on making them again for an adult party with beer cheese and other dips
