While shopping for clothes at our local mall recently, we stopped by Auntie Anne’s and picked up some Nuggets. They were absolutely amazing. They tasted just like the Auntie Anne’s Pretzels we’ve been making, except they were in nugget form.
This spurred a cooking day soon after in order to convert our pretzels to nuggets. Here’s how you do it:
Use this recipe and follow the instructions up to when you divide the dough. Instead of dividing the dough into 12 lumps roll it out into a rectangle roughly 8″ x 12″. Using a pizza cutter cut the dough into 48 pieces by cutting the it into 8 strips on the short side then cutting each strip into 6 pieces. Each “nugget” should be about 1″ x 2″.
Dip in the baking soda and water mixture, place on a greased pan, and cook until the bottoms are a medium brown. Ours took about 6 minutes. Now dip in butter and enjoy!
