Almond Toffee Pretzels

Almond Toffee Pretzels

Before we had made some Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels, it was a huge success and did not last a day in our kitchen, today we had those cravings again so we will be making some pretzels but with a slight variation and use Almond toffee as the flavour.  This was inspired by the almond toffee of Auntie Anne’s its soft and chewy it’s everything you want in a pretzel.

Ingredients

5 cups flour
1 1/2 cup soft brown sugar
4 tsp active dry yeast
1 tsp white sugar
1 1/4 cups water, warm
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp butter + some for topping, melted
1/4 cup baking soda
2 cups water, hot
1 cup roughly chopped almonds
butter

Method

  1. In a bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 tsp white sugar in warm water, set aside for 15 minutes.
  2. In a separate bowl combine flour, 1/2 cup soft brown sugar, and salt. Make a well in the centre the then pour the yeast mixture and the melted butter. Using hand, mix until it forms a dough, remove from bowl then knead until dough is smooth. Place in a lightly greased bowl then cover with plastic wrap. Let it rise in a warm place for about an hour.
  3. Divide the dough into 12 pieces then in a non-stick surface (not floured it will be hard to work out in a floured surface) roll each dough into a long rope and form it into a pretzel shape. Set aside.
  4. In a bowl add baking soda and hot water.
  5. Mix together 1 cup soft brown sugar and almonds then place on a large plate.
  6. Dip each pretzel shaped dough in the baking soda solution.
  7. Drench pretzels in almond sugar mixture then place in a lightly greased baking pan.
  8. Bake in a 220C preheated oven for 8 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven, spread some butter on top then serve.

    Divine! (I admit it: I’ve had those at Auntie Anne’s. I try not to eat chain stuff and seldom do. But sometimes one finds oneself in an airport and it seems the best of a lot of bad options.)
