Just in Time for the Holidays: Auntie Anne’s At Home Baking Kit is a Perfect Activity with the Kids

An Auntie Anne’s pretzel has always been a treat reserved for a trip to the mall for our family, but I am excited that they have recently launched an At Home Baking Kit where you can make your own pretzels or other recipes. As tempting as it was to make their traditional pretzels with the sample kit I received, I decided to give their monkey bread recipe a try. It ended up being easy and the perfect baking activity to do with my toddler, because unlike many baking recipes it didn’t need to be perfect. She loved making little dough balls at it didn’t matter that they were all different shapes and sizes. Older kiddos would probably enjoy making their own pretzel creations or the traditional ones as well and pretzel sticks would probably be another great activity with your younger kids. 

I used my stand mixer with the dough hook attachment, so kneading and preparing the dough couldn’t have been easier, but I don’t think it would have been that bad kneading it by hand either. I did need to add a little more cinnamon and sugar of my own when making the monkey bread, because I ran out of the mix the kit came with, but this will depend on your preferences and how many balls you make/need to cover. I had little hands helping me roll the balls, so this may be another reason why we ran out. But no biggie, since we don’t have a shortage of cinnamon or sugar in our pantry. I would definitely like to try making the traditional pretzel recipe, pretzel shapes or stick and the deep dish pizza.
