Loving shop bought pretzels but unable to afford them very often, I decided to have a go at making my own. I found a recipe that worked quite well but have tweaked it to improve the outcome. These are particularly good coated with cinnamon and sugar. They can be reheated and taste just as fresh as they were when they first came out of the oven. Enjoy!"

Use your bread machine to make chewy baked pretzels at home. Beer in the batter makes them especially light and delicious.

These mini pretzels are pretty and delicious. If you find shaping the pretzels too fiddly, feel free to roll out the dough and cut out shapes with a cookie/pastry cutter.
