I’m lucky enough to live by not only one, but two Auntie Anne’s pretzels stands. At least once a week I take my son to the mall to walk, especially since it is starting to become too cold outside. I’ll admit, sometimes we might just stop at Auntie Anne’s for a treat! So you can imagine I was pretty super excited to learn that they now offer At-Home Baking Kits! In honor of the upcoming holidays, they now have two new flavors that are just perfect to share with your family: Apple Cinnamon and Gingerbread!
Auntie Anne’s generously sent me the Apple Cinnamon At-Home Baking Kit to test out. I have to say this was one review the family could not wait for me to conduct! Everyone wanted to taste test the Soft Pretzels ASAP!
The Kit provides all the ingredients you need, except for butter if you choose to add the Cinnamon Sugar topping. If you opt for your pretzel without this topping. You will also need non-stick spray, but when my can ran out, I was able to use a little cooking oil instead and it worked fine.
Now before I get really into the process of the baking, I just want to say I thought this was a fabulous family activity! My son was a little too young to understand what was going on, but my friend’s 8 year old daughter joined me in the kitchen while we made traditional pretzels. We had so much fun! Best part is, you don’t have to just create pretzels! At the Auntie Anne’s website, they have a whole list of fun recipes and ideas that are quite outside of the box of what to do with the pretzel dough!
