Food Storage Recipe - Homemade Soft Pretzel Valentines

Make these for the kiddos instead of them eating all of that Valentine candy and chocolate. These are better for them and fun. Make these pretzels into heart shapes and it will be a hit for the whole house.

Homemade Soft Pretzel Valentines

1 package of yeast

1 1/2 cup of warm water

1 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon salt

4 cups of flour

1 beaten egg

Coarse salt for sprinkling on top

Combine the yeast, water, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Let sit about 10 minutes until it foams. Stir in the flour. Knead on a table until the dough is smooth. Divide into about 8 - 10 equal sized pieces and then Shape the dough into tube by rolling with both hands. Shape each tube into a heart shape , squeezing the ends together in the middle. Place each one into boiling water that is at a rolling boil for no more than 30 seconds and take out with a slotted spoon. Put them on a baking sheet and brush them with the beaten egg. The egg helps them to get to that nice golden "pretzel" color. Sprinkle the tops with the coarse salt. Bake for about 12 - 15 minutes , but WATCH THEM VERY CLOSELY - THEY CAN GET VERY BROWN ON TOP VERY QUICKLY.

Serve! Give them to everybody on your Valentines list. Great idea for something to take to your kid's class. Healthier than cupcakes, cookies, candy, and chocolate.
