Soft Pretzels Two Ways

A friend of mine has a fabulous blog dedicated to recipes and decorating ideas for parties, www.sugarandbows.com. I decided to try one of her many delicious looking recipes, soft pretzels with beer cheese dip. As often the case with me, I decided to start cooking before actually checking to see that I had all the ingredients. I did not. So I decided to do a little improvising. I made soft pretzels two ways.
First I tried the Sugar and Bows recipe, with a slight variation because I was short on cheddar cheese. Then I decided to try a sweetened version with cinnamon and sugar. Both recipes were YUM and a perfect appetizer for a party or snack during the Big Game!

Sugar and Bows' Soft Pretzels with Beer Cheese Dip




The variations that I made were that I cut the recipe in half, since I only had one container of breadsticks. I also was short on cheddar so I used half cheddar and half shredded mozzarella. Still delicious. Then I decided to make the sweetened version. 

Follow the same recipe, except instead of sprinkling salt on the pretzels, sprinkle a mixture of cinnamon and sugar (about 1 part cinnamon to 2 parts sugar). Then instead of the cheese dip I made a simple icing to dip these in. Mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar with about 2 tablespoons of milk (add more of less milk to get desired consistency. Enjoy!
