Who doesn’t love freshly made soft pretzels? My latest Caramel Apple Soft Pretzel Recipe is almost too much to handle. Stuffed with apples, smothered with dulce de leche, then sprinkled with sea salt, these big softies are our newest favorite fall treat.
Every April, Lt. Dan asks me to make soft pretzels for his birthday. He could have anything under-the-sun to eat, but he asks for soft pretzels.
Pretty cute, if you ask me.
Today I made his favorite soft pretzel recipe just for the heck of it. …Because that’s the kind of thing you do when you love somebody.
You don’t wait until they ask.
You don’t ponder what they’ve done for you lately.
You don’t check your schedule to see if you can fit it in.
You just do things you know they like, because it will make them smile.
Dan loves this Caramel Apple Soft Pretzel Recipe. And who wouldn’t?
Pillowy twists of buttery dough, with tiny morsels of apple nestled deep within. Then each soft pretzel is generously drizzled with creamy “dulce de leche” caramel and sprinkled with a hefty dose of course sea salt.
Soft pretzels are much easier to make than they appear.
Simply make the dough and let it rise. Then using a mixer, “knead” in the fresh apple chunks.
Separate the dough into equal pieces.
Then roll each piece into a long doughy snake, on a greased surface. Some of the apples will pop out, but keep rolling and you’ll recollect them all.
Lift the ends up to make a U shape. Twist and press the ends close to the bottom. Don’t worry if they are imperfect. Caramel Apple Soft Pretzels “pretty-up” as they bake.
Quickly boil the Caramel Apple Soft Pretzel Recipe to create the “skin.” Then place them on cookie sheets and bake.
Drizzle, Sprinkle, Devour.
I can’t say enough about this Caramel Apple Soft Pretzel Recipe, other than you REALLY should make it.
