Yummy yummy yummy

You have to try these...they are so simple and easy and will be gone as soon as you're done! (The reason I didn't get a picture of the finished product:) ) They're Pretzel Bits...easy, easy, easy!

You start with thawing the dough (I used Rhodes dinner rolls but you can also use the Texas style as well) until it's soft enough for you to work with. Cut them in half and roll to make round balls. Place back on cookie sheet to rise until doubled.

Bring a large pot to a gentle boil and toss them in (enough that the whole ball gets shocked) and leave for about 45 seconds.

 Remove with a slitted spoon and place on a paper towel to drain slightly (don't leave on for to long cause they'll start to stick to the paper towel, learn from my mistake. They were a pain to try and get all the paper towel off). Don't worry if they look a little funny after you take them out, they be perfect after you bake them.

 Bake in 375 degree oven for about 15 minutes until golden brown. Brush with butter and roll in a cinnamon and sugar mixture (1/2 cinnamon, 1/2 sugar). You can also sprinkle with sea salt and roll in garlic and Parmesan cheese.

I only cut them in half but I still think they could have been smaller so you could just plop them right into your mouth.
I can't wait to make them again cause they were so easy, next time we're trying Parmesan cheese.
