I've made these five times now with my grandchildren (ages 4,5,6). It is an easy recipe, fun to make into shapes, and delicious to eat. We made some with salt and most plain and brushed with butter when they came out of the oven. My only constructive comment deals with the baking soda wash. We used MUCH less than the 1/2 cup of baking soda recipe calls for and you don't need 4 cups water! I dissolved 2 TEASPOONS in about 1 cup water (in the microwave) and then put the solution in a flat dish. I dipped the pretzels in the solution (rather than letting the children) and it worked out fine. You do not need to waste all that baking soda. You need the solution to make them brown, so they look like pretzels, but you do not need a lot. We tried brushing the solution on the pretzels (and the children could do that) but the color looked best by dipping. A WONDERFUL KITCHEN PROJECT.... will do again, many times, I'm sure.
