Believe it or not, soft pretzels are really easy to make at home. They may seem really difficult, but they aren’t. If you’ve never had a real soft pretzel you’ve gotta try making these at home. They are so good. And they are much better than Auntie Anne’s pretzels. Those are just so heavy with all of that butter on them. Don’t get me wrong, I like butter. But wow.
