Easy Homemade Pretzel Bites

Easy Homemade Pretzel Bites #superbowlsnacks #afterschoolsnacks

Have you made your menu for the big game coming up?  I know my hubby is super excited that his Broncos are in the Superbowl!  For once, we will actually be watching it!  These Easy Homemade Pretzel Bites will be perfect for your get together, or for an after school snack on these cold winter days.  I’ve made these several ways.  I’ve done them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and in my mini muffin tin. I tend to like them better in the muffin tin size wise.  Remember to shape them smaller than what you think they should be, because when you put them in the boiling water and then bake them, they tend to puff up!  But they are SO good, and you can make them as salt flavored or as Cinnamon Sugar, too!

Pom pom Garland

So here’s a little confession — I’m not much of a mantel decorator. I put some pictures on mine about a year ago, and most of the year they sit there with nary a change.

But I do decorate it for Christmas…and then when the Christmas garland comes down, it looks sort of sad and naked. It needs a little something. Preferably something bright and cheery since we’re now into the doldrums of winter.
