Making Pretzels Together

If there was a theme to my Grace's Kitchen posts over the last year, it would be this –

Let your kids help in the kitchen.

I don't think the importance of that statement can be over stressed. Kids learn to cook by cooking. They learn to appreciate food, understand food, enjoy food, and develop healthy habits by watching their parents (hopefully do all of those things).

Earlier this year, I received an Auntie Anne's Make-Your-Own Pretzel Kit to review with my family.

On a rainy Saturday, we decided to make the pretzels.

Let me pause to say that this is an awesome family activity. Even with Grace being too little to have a central role, it was a blast.

We used our bread machine to mix and knead the dough.

Then we let the dough rise in a bowl.

Next, we rolled and shaped.

Or, more accurately, one of us rolled and shaped while the other two photographed the process.

The instructions were easy to follow, and the results were beautiful.

We used the Auntie Anne's Make-Your-Own Pretzel Kit to make letters of the alphabet and numbers and shapes, in addition to the obligatory pretzel twists.

Did I mention that we had a great time? It was seriously fun.

And the pretzels were amazing. Two days later, there was nothing left but a few crumbs.

  1. Ohhhh, how did you get one of those kits? It sounds fabulous! I have a copycat recipe that is good, but probably not quite as easy as the kit.
