If you're like me and already stuck sending the same peanut butter sandwiches with your kids for lunch everyday, you're going to love these whole wheat alphabet pretzels! They make a great healthy lunch alternative, an easy after school snack, and making them with your kids will create fun lasting memories. It doesn't get much better than that! RhodesFinalIngredients Whole Wheat Pretzel 

Pretzel Ingredients:

Rhodes Cracked Wheat Rolls

Course kosher or sea salt

1 tablespoon baking soda

Peanut Butter, Honey,

 

Greek Yogurt Dip Ingredients:

6 ounces plain or vanilla greek yogurt

1 tablespoon peanutbutter

1 teaspoon honey

Directions: 1. Start by thawing your dough. Put your desired number of rolls on a plate and cover with saran wrap. You can either leave them on the counter for 45 minutes to an hour, or microwave on a low heat setting for 1-2 minutes. I microwave mine for 30 seconds at a time, checking and turning the rolls between heating. You don't want to cook them, so be careful to microwave them until just thawed. IMG_3338 2 2. Now, call the kids into the kitchen and get rolling! Roll each piece of dough into a snake shape about 1/2 inch thick. You may need to help younger kids with this step. IMG_3340 2 3. Have the kids form each snake into an alphabet letter or shape. This is a fantastic learning opportunity for preschoolers and kindergarteners too! Put the completed letters onto a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray or covered with parchment paper. Cover the letters with saran wrap that has been lightly coated with cooking spray and let rise for 30-45 minutes.IMG_3277 4. Now it's time to boil your letters! This step is what gives your final pretzels that delicious chewy crust. Fill a large pot with 6 inches of water. Add 1 tablespoon of baking soda and bring to a boil. Carefully add your letters one or two at a time and boil for 30 seconds on each side. Don't boil too long, or they will become a mushy mess. Not that I know from experience. ;) Remove the letters with a large spatula and let cool on a cooling rack. Once cool, sprinkle with salt. While they are cooling, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. IMG_3345 25. Transfer the letters back to the sprayed or lined cookie sheet and bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until they just start to turn a golden brown. While the pretzels cool, mix together greek yogurt, peanut butter and honey for a healthy and delicious dip. Enjoy! RhodesFinal3
