This weekend I was craving a salty snack. So I went on my new favorite food website foodgawker.com and looked up something good. There it was, the perfect snack. I found the copycat recipe for Auntie Anne's pretzels! I almost died. Funny thing was Rob and I were at target yesterday and he said he was really craving a soft pretzel. You should of seen his face when I told him what I was going to make that night. The recipe is pretty simple. Now they don't taste exactly like Auntie Anne's but they are pretty close. I doubled the recipe because well we are fatties. Actually we aren't but I wanted to have enough for a few days of snacks.

2 cups milk
1 1/2 tablespoons (2 packets) active dry yeast
6 tablespoons brown sugar
4 tablespoons butter, melted
4 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons salt
1/3 cup baking soda
3 cups warm water
8 tablespoons butter, melted in a shallow dish
Mine came out a little puffier than the original but they were delicious. If you want something sweet you can dip them in cinnamon and sugar after dipping them in butter. I just might have to do that tonight. Hope you guys enjoy!
