  • 1 tube 8 count Grands Biscuits
  • ¼ cup baking soda
  • Butter melted
  • Kosher or pretzel salt


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line two cookie sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
  • Fill a 3-4 Qt. saucepan halfway with water and bring to a boil.
  • Open biscuits and slice each into 4 pieces to make 32 pretzel bites.
  • Once the water boils, add the baking soda. The water will bubble up!
  • Working in batches, boil the biscuit quarters for about 30 seconds each, turning halfway. Remove from the boiling water with a slotted spoon and place evenly on prepared cookie sheets.
  • Bake for about 13-18 minutes, or until golden brown. Some will get more brown/golden than others.
  • Brush bites with melted butter and sprinkle with salt. Serve warm or room temperature, store in an airtight container for up to 1 day.



  • Nobody wants a hard, dry pretzel. Well, pretzel sticks being the exception. To keep your pretzel bites fresh, wrap them in plastic wrap and store the wrapped pieces in aluminum foil. You can keep them on the countertop for about a day, or freeze them for up to 30 days.
  • If frozen, allow the pretzel bites to fully thaw before reheating. Then, bake in the oven at 350°F for about 5 minutes. Alternatively, you can throw them in the microwave covered by a damp paper towel and heat them for about 20 seconds.
  • Soft pretzels will stay fresh at room temp for just one day. If you need to store them for any longer than that, opt for the freezer. Frozen pretzels will stay fresh for about a month.
