Soft Pretzels

Stephanie Gallagher
Making soft pretzels with the kids is a fun cooking activity. From preschoolers to teenagers, kids of all ages enjoy shaping the dough to make these soft pretzels. And with this recipe, a lot of the work is done for you in the bread machine.

The first step is gathering your ingredients for the soft pretzel recipe.

You will need:

  • 1-1/2 cups water

  • 1 tsp. kosher salt

  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar

  • 3-1/2 cups flour

  • 2 tsp. active dry yeast

  • 2 quarts water

  • 1/3 cup baking soda

  • kosher salt (Important: You must use kosher salt or a sea salt. Don't use regular salt. The grains are too fine.)
