I discovered Trader Joe's peanut butter pretzels while I was in New York and really craved them when I got home. Luckily, the shop near me sells American peanut butter, so I decided to figure out how to make my own!
These aren't as crunch as the ones we bought but they do taste great and any peanut butter addict will love them.
Set the breadmaker to knead or use a hand mixer to mix the dry ingredients together. Slowly add the warm water and let it mix in.
Once you've added all the water, let the dough knead until it forms a thick dough.
When the water is boiling add the baking soda and drop in the pretzel bites. Let them cook for a few seconds and then when they rise to the surface, fish them out with a spatula.
