These Soft Pretzel Rolls are a great option to serve to the boys when they come over to watch a match. Paired with a cold beer, these soft and chewy pretzels are a total score! The kitchen secret to these little balls of chewy dough is the water bath process used to create a smooth and scrumptious outer layer with a soft and fluffy center. Enjoy them one bite at a time or spread some cream cheese all over!
