Turtle Soft Pretzels

My son’s favorite snack is a big soft pretzel. Every time we go somewhere that has them, especially the mall, he just has to have one. He may or may not share a bite with me. He definitely loves them more than any other sweet treat or candy. There’s something special about a freshly baked pretzel covered in salt and dipped in spicy mustard. It’s so good. But there’s more than one way to make a traditional homemade pretzel. Did you know you can even make chocolate ones like the one shown above? And there’s many more ways to make them, too.
