My son adores these pretzels dogs! My Better Half introduced them to us, and now we know how to make them on our own — although as my mom used to say, it always tastes better when someone else makes it! Watch your water temperature with the yeast, and you'll find that while these do take a while to make, especially due to the rising time for the dough, they really aren't difficult at all. They make simple (and cheap) hot dogs into more of a meal and turn them into something special! Enjoy!
