Soft Pretzel Bites with Maple Mustard Dipping Sauce

I have a real "soft" spot for soft pretzels!  Get it?  I know...I'm hilarious.  I could be convinced to do anything when soft pretzels are involved.  I would not survive in the CIA if they tempted me with a warm pretzels.  Man, those secrets would not be safe with me!

Seriously, these are my weakness.  Warm, soft, buttery bread is so comforting to me.  Just the smell makes me melt.  Making these with my girls was such a test of my patience.  Waiting for them to come out of the oven was SO HARD!

Maybe I have mentioned this before, but I love warm comfort foods.  While others may want to dig into a tub of ice cream when they're stressed, I would rather dive into an apple crisp or shove about 3 of these little bites into my mouth at once.

I love the ease of these little bites. I found this great recipe but thought I would adapt it to make them easy to pack in school lunches or as an afternoon snack.  My girls had a great time rolling the balls of dough, so it was a real team effort! If you don't have self-rising flour, you can always follow my recipe for making your own!

If you love dipping your pretzels in mustard, you will love my Maple Mustard Dipping Sauce!  It's sweet and tangy which is perfect with the warm, salty pretzel bites!
