FAQ's


  • How do you reheat soft pretzels? How do you soften hard pretzels?

You can microwave the pretzels if they get hard by refrigeration or even bake then again to get them soft and warm to consume.

Mostly these delicious pretzel bites wont last longer to refrigerate them but in case you have leftovers then you can refrigerate them up to 3 days to get the same freshness once reheated.

Tip's to make the Aunt Annie's Copycat soft baked pretzels:


  • The milk used in blooming the yeast has to be warm and not HOT or COLD. Either ways the yeast wont bloom well and you will not have dough that is doubled.

  • Make sure the dough is not sticky and nor too dry. When you poke finger in the dough it should bounce back.

  • Keep the yeast to bloom for at least 7 to 10 mins and dough to double in size for at least 35 to 40 mins.

  • Do not leave the dough pieces in baking soda bath for long,few seconds is enough.If you leave for longer then the dough will start spreading in the soda water and it will turn all messy.

  • Bake the pretzel bites as per temperature that suits your oven size. Since different ovens have different temperature capabilities so to get perfectly baked pretzel bites always check if they are cooked well or bake for more or less time to suit the individual oven temperatures.

  • Brush the baked pretzel bites with generous amount of melted butter,that will stick the cinnamon sugar mix very well to the pretzel bites.
