Boardwalk Food Company Craft Beer Pretzels and Queso

After two days of “skinny” recipes (cauliflower cheesy bread instead of breadsticks and baked mozzarella sticks instead of fried), today is the splurge day.  Enter pretzels and queso.  I have always bought my pretzels, so I couldn’t  wait to try the pretzel mix the Boardwalk Food Company sent me.  Even better, you pretty much just add beer, boil in water, and bake in oven!  They were so delicious and actually fairly easy to make.  They may not look as great as the picture on the front of the box, but they tasted (I’m sure) just as good!

1 Box Boardwalk Food Company Original Pretzel Craft Beer Pretzel Mix
