My upcoming How To Make Soft Pretzels Cooking Demo is part of the #Superbowlplus Cooking Demo Series. Get a list of all the great demos going on at the bottom of this post. Or head over to Google+ and type in #Superbowlplus.

Do you like pretzels?

I don’t mean those crunchy things that come in a bag.

I mean those soft, doughy, chewy, brown, warm, salty, bready treats that you get at ballgames or at the mall.


On Thursday I’m going to show you how to make them. You’ll find out that these soft pretzels are super-easy and way more fun to make than standing in line at the mall.

But I’ll warn you now that there are a few steps involved. First you shape them (find out how on Thursday), then you give them a baking soda and water bath (find out why on Thursday), then you brush them with egg and dust them with salt (find out how much on Thursday) and finally you bake them until they’re the color of a cinnamon stick (find out how long on Thursday).

Are you excited about Thursday? I know I am!

Click right here on Thursday January 31st at 8:00pm EST to watch my live cooking demo showing you How To Make Soft Pretzels.

Not only can you watch the demo live right there from Google+ but you can even ask questions in the comment section while it’s going on. Just make sure you put a few asterisks before the questions so that I spot them.

See you on Thursday!

Find out how to make soft pretzels. Here is a basket of soft pretzels with a mustard strawberry dipping sauce.
