I first made this recipe a couple months back around Christmas. The pretzel bites turned out perfect but the cheese dip was awful. Here are a few things I learned and adapted from this recipe:
- Instead of making traditional pretzels, roll doll dough out and cut into 1-1 1/2 inch bites
- Let the cheese dip take adequate time to thicken up after adding milk (I rushed this in my first try).
- Salt and pepper are crucial. Season your cheese dip well but don't forget you have sea salt on the pretzels!
Overall, I have loved making this recipe. There are many little steps but simple in process and a guaranteed crowd pleaser. I'm hoping to expand on my dips for the next Sunday gathering... how good does Jalapeno cheese dip sound? Yep, I'll blog it after.
