Mickey-Shaped Pretzels

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 ounces butter, melted
  • 2/3 cups baking soda
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Sugar, for sprinkling on top
  • 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles + a bit more for sprinkling on top

Directions:

1. Combine water, sugar, and salt in a large bowl, and sprinkle yeast on top. Let sit for 5 minutes or until the mixture begins to foam. Add the flour and butter, and mix on low speed until well-combined. Add a ½ cup of rainbow sprinkles. Mix on medium speed for about 4-5 minutes until dough is smooth and pulls away from the side of the bowl.

2. Remove dough from bowl. Clean the bowl and spray with oil. Return dough to bowl and cover with a tea towel, and let it sit in a warm place for about 50-55 minutes, or until the dough has doubled in size.

3. Preheat oven to 450˚F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with oil.

4. Bring a medium pot of water and the baking soda to a rolling boil.

5. Turn dough out onto a slightly oiled surface and divide into 16 equal pieces. Roll out each piece into a 12-inch rope. Loop a dough rope to form a circle in the middle, but with about 2 inches of dough on the ends. Roll the dough ends into coils on top of the circle to form a Mickey shape. Place onto prepared baking sheet. Repeat for remaining pieces. 

6. Use tongs to place pretzels into boiling water, one by one, for 15 seconds. Remove from water and place onto lined pan. Brush tops of pretzels with beaten egg and sprinkle with more rainbow sprinkles and sugar. 

7. Bake until dark golden brown, about 10-13 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack for 5 minutes before serving.

Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
