CHEATERS PRETZEL BITES w/ CHOCOLATE DIPPING SAUCE

CHEATERS PRETZEL BITES w/ CHOCOLATE DIPPING SAUCE

With me having a degree and some working experience in the pastry-field one could suspect that I have a sweet tooth. But no, I’m a savory girl (except when it comes to After Eights, never leave me alone with a box. I tell you, both you and me will regret it later).

But recently I’ve discovered the whole salty-sweet thing that’s been going on. And I love it. So this Wednesday I got home, crazy tiered after listening to one professor that had the opportunity to talk about his field of research. If you’ve ever studied at a university you know that this never ends well. So, I got home. Hungry. Then a friend texted me that they read somewhere that you could make pretzels out of pre-made pizza dough. And I happened to have one in my fridge. It was meant to be. So I quickly rolled out the dough, boiled them, threw them into the oven and whipped together a sweet and chocolaty dipping sauce to go with them. In 20 min! And they turned out so yummy! The pillowy pretzels salty topping complements the sweet dipping sauce so nicely but i could see them go perfectly on the side of a big bowl of autumn soup or filled with cream cheese and tomato for some finger food.

Ingredients – Pretzel bites;
1 pack of pre-made pizza dough (or make one yourself)
500 ml of water
2 tbs of baking soda
Sea salt 

Cheaters pretzel bites
Preheat the oven to 225 degrees. 

Divide the pizza dough into two parts and roll them out to about 1-1,5 cm in diameter on a floured surface. Cut each dough-part into 6 equal pieces and roll them out slightly between your hands. 

Bring the water and baking powder up to a rapid boil. Put half of the dough-balls in the boiling water and allow to boil until they float up to the surface (about 30 sek). Scoop them out of the water and onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Immediately cut a small incision on the top of the pretzel-ball and sprinkle with sea salt. Repeat the process with the other half. 

Bake in the middle of the oven 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with a dipping sauce, as a side to a bowl of soup or just gobble them down. Best served slightly warm. 

Ingredients chocolate dipping sauce;
2 tbs chocolate spread/nutella, heaped
1 tbs sour cream
Small handful off raspberries

Chocolate dipping sauce
Save some raspberries for decoration before chopping up the rest into smaller pieces. Mix all ingredients together thoroughly, decorate with the rest of the raspberries and serve.
