Thermomix Pretzels are an absolute treat for the whole family. Make these salty, authentic pretzels with cheese dip in your Thermomix. Step by step recipe. Traditionally, pretzels are accompanied by a delicious camembert cheese dip known as Obatzda in Bavaria. It is made with camembert, onions, paprika, caraway seeds and sour cream. It is a great dip for these Thermomix pretzels and best enjoyed with a large wheat beer. I have always loved the salty taste of pretzels and when I was younger we used to have Bavarian evenings with pretzels. As the Bavarian would say: ready for beer (literal translation: from a Bavarian accent it means the tap is ready, referring to the beer tap). We used to make the pretzels with cheese or sometimes even sweet, dipped in butter and rolled in cinnamon-sugar mix. They are great the next day for lunch as well. Just make sure when storing them, that you keep them in a dry place and the next day slightly toast them. You can slice them lengthways, spread some butter on it and top it with cheese to take into work for lunch. The dough for these Thermomix pretzels is very straight forward but what makes the pretzels so unique is the finishing solution. Typically lye was used to give the pretzels the great golden brown and salty finish as the lye reacts with the dough. But it is very dangerous and can cause serious burns, especially if you want to make pretzels with your children I would not recommend it. Instead, you can simply boil some water with bicarbonate of soda and you get the exact same effect, without the danger. Have you ever made Thermomix pretzels at home? Leave me a comment, I would love to hear your stories.
