This Copycat Mall Pretzel Recipe was the closet I ever got to those super amazing pretzels sold at the mall. I have tried a pretty good recipe before, but not quite like the mall ones. And after attempting to make two different batches in one day, I noticed a huge difference! 

My first batch was pretty much the same as the second, except I decided to add baking powder to my second batch and let me tell you they came out so fluffy, so soft and so close to those mall pretzels, that I was just amazed! I even texted my friend the same day to share the excitement because it’s truly exciting when you have a successful trial of attempting to replicate something (maybe that’s just me.) You seriously need to try these pretzels! And since this recipe only makes 6 pretzels you may want to double the recipe and make more because these are so good fresh out the oven!
