On Fridays while my Mother-in-law is back in Vietnam to visit relatives, I watch my little niece and one of my nephews. Since it was Good Friday, the older kids did not have school so I had 7 kids that day to keep entertained. Luckily it was a BEAUTIFUL spring morning and the kids played outside the majority of the day. I decided it would be fun to make a snack, and whipped up some pretzel dough with my new Kitchenaid mixer. It took no time at all and the kids were so excited when I called them inside and they each got their OWN piece of dough to make their pretzels with. Believe me, when you are from a family with a lot of kids/ and or cousins, that is a BIG deal! I usually let them help make the dough too if there are only one or two kids around to dump in the ingredients, but I knew that there would be a lot of fighting over who got to do what so I figured it would be easier this way.
I used this recipe off of pinterest that I had tried the weekend before so I knew that it was good. :)
I doubled the recipe and didn't bother with the frosting though. They are sweet enough without it...
This little girl slept the whole time, which I admit made it a bit easier.
Kien was so excited to play with the dough. Don't worry, I made them all wash their hands before they could help since they had been playing outside.
Here they are before baking. We had about 10-15 minutes to wait while they baked so we went outside and had icy pops! (Not sure if that's what they are called, but that is what we call them)
Baking with me always makes Kaia super happy. :) It is one of her favorite things to do with me.
I'd say they turned out great! ANd, I didn't even help roll them and they didn't turn out funny looking!
In fact, they were so good, we ate them all up!
You should try to make it, it is so much fun... and your kids will think you are the best mom ever!
Hope everyone had a good Easter! I will post those pics later this week... Now back to the editing!
