The single worst motherhood decision I’ve made this year to date: making my kids homemade soft pretzels from this kit. Omg…if you love to bake and follow nit-picky directions on a clock, this kit is for you!! If you do not like to make complex baking recipes, just light your $4 on fire, if you’ve already purchased this kit.
They save the directions for inside the box, O-N-C-E you break that safety seal…
for a reason…
AND, THAT REASON IS THE REASON I AM HAVING A MARGARITA, AS I MAKE THEM!
Salty it is, Auntie Anne’s, because this kit is made from my tears of frustration.
My two cents? Avoid the three hours of frustration from beginning to clean up, and try Bust Magazine’s simple pretzel recipe. This was my previous try, and I like this girl’s approach. It isn’t the same as the mall’s generic versions, but these were tasty and worth a try again.
I think we should keep a close eye on the youth working the mall and preparing our pretzels. This would seriously make you nuts!!
