Pretzel Dogs

Copycat Auntie Annie's Pretzel Dogs

I love sausages but due to health concerns I always refrain myself from buying them. Processed food isn't at the top of my food choice, well, at least most of the time. However, whenever I see those mini pretzel dogs from Auntie Annie's, that is the time I let my guards off and... succumb to the temptation. After all, those are tiny, and they can be shared. 

The distinctive aroma of pretzel while they are baking is both enticing and irresistible. It made it almost impossible not to grab one or two while you are pulling them out of oven. When freshly baked, they are a little bit crunchy, and a little bit chewy, but still retain a fluffy texture. Pretzel is something best eat warm and fresh. It doesn't keep well as it will get hard and dry. However, with the smell and taste so good, I bet it will be gobbled up in a blink of an eye. 


See... they are gone!
