Parmesan Pretzel Bites

Now these little beauties were the definite favorite of most of the girls and the leaders.  I made almost 100 of these things and they were almost completely gone by the end of the night.  These come from a blog called Get Off Your Butt and Bake!.  She also gives a dessert version called Cinnamon and Sugar Pretzel Bites so I’ll give you the recipe for that as well.  I’m sure I’ll be making that version in the future at some point and when I do, I’ll include a picture of those too.

Texas size Rhodes frozen roll dough, as many as you like, each roll makes 4 bites

butter

coarse salt, garlic and Parmesan

or

cinnamon and sugar

1  Take a thawed roll and cut it into 4 sections.  Place dough on greased cookie sheets and cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Let dough rise until double in size, about 35 – 45 minutes.  Bring a large pot of water to a gentle boil.  Plop about 10 pieces into the boiling water, tossing gently for about 45 seconds.  Remove with slotted spoon and place on paper towels to drain.  Move bites to greased baking sheets and bake at 375 for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.

2  Brush bites with melted butter and sprinkle with a mixture of coarse salt, garlic and Parmesan or you can mix together about 1 cup sugar with 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon and sprinkle with that after brushing with butter.

You can serve the Parmesan Bites with a Cheddar Dip:

1 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon flour

1 cup milk

1 1/2 – 2 cups grated cheddar cheese

Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat.  Add flour and stir until well blended and butter has turned light golden brown.  Slowly whisk in milk and cook until thickened slightly.  Remove from heat and stir in cheese until smooth and cheese has melted.  Season with salt and pepper.

And you can serve the Cinnamon and Sugar Bites with a Vanilla Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar

2 tablespoon milk

1 tablespoon melted butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine all ingredients and mix well.
