  • 1/4 cup Sue Bee® Honey
  • 1 1/3 cups warm water
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 package yeast
  • 5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ounces unsalted butter, melted
  • Vegetable oil, for bowl
  • 10 cups water
  • 1/3 cup baking soda
  • 1 large egg yolk beaten with 1 tablespoon water
  • Pretzel salt


  • Dissolve yeast in warm water. Let mixture stand until yeast begins to foam vigorously (5-10 minutes).
  • Combine the Sue Bee® honey, yeast/water mixture, kosher salt, flour and butter in a bowl; mix well.
  • Knead the dough until it's smooth – about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Remove the dough from the bowl and coat the bowl lightly with the vegetable oil; return the dough to the bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let sit in a warm place for 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 F.
  • Cover a baking pan with parchment paper and lightly brush with vegetable oil; set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, bring the 10 cups of water and baking soda to a boil.
  • Place the dough onto a slightly oiled surface; divide into 8 equal pieces.
  • Roll each piece of dough into a rope and cut into 1" chunks.
  • Place the pretzels into the boiling water – one at a time – for 30 seconds each; remove them from the water using a large flat spatula, placing pretzel pieces one inch apart onto the parchment-lined baking pan.
  • Brush each pretzel with the beaten egg yolk and water mixture; sprinkle with the pretzel salt.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until dark golden brown in color; transfer to a cooling rack for at least 5 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with a side of our Sue Bee® honey Mustard or your favorite dipping sauce!
