Pimping my home baked pretzels!

Hard pretzels with a raspberry honey mustard dip.

So Germany won the world cup then. I’d been planning to have a go at pretzels for a while now so now was my opportunity. I had no idea exactly how you made hard pretzels so I turned to google. I found a simple and very easy to follow recipe on Foodomania. 

Hard pretzels, sticks and in traditional shapes.

Once made, I then had to decide what to eat them with. I could, of course, have had a beer and some mustard to dip the pretzels in. However I really wanted something a little more sophisticated I decided to make a dip and also pimp some of the remaining pretzel sticks with chocolate and sprinkles.

How to…

  • Push the raspberries through a sieve to remove the seeds. Scrape the seedless pulp into a bowl.
  • Stir in the honey and the mustard until well combined.
  • Dip in the pretzels, open a beer and really enjoy.

I’m going to open a mini bottle of  Sainsburys Prosecco and sit in the garden. An ideal accompanyment to these buttery, salty snacks. An IWC Gold winner, at 5.25 for a 37.5cl botle it is an inexpensive treat on a warm summers evening with a few canapes.

Chocolate dipped pretzels

I love the combination of salty and sweet, so dipping the salty pretzels into milk chocolate is my idea of heaven. Not only that adding a few sprinkles really over eggs the pudding, in a good way you understand.

    D’aw! Your pretzels are so cute! I have to applaud you for even making them. I ain’t about that proofing and boiling and then baking life. Too much work for me. 😛
    That raspberry honey mustard dip looks good! Maybe it can be used on a chicken sandwich?
