Easy Micky Mouse soft pretzel recipe

Vegan, quick & easy.

I'm the biggest Disney fan (as you may be able to tell from my instagram feed).
Disney has always been a huge part of my life, from visiting Disneyland Paris numerous times, growing up watching Disney and dreaming of visiting Disney World (I must get over my fear of flying!)

I was recently watching some Disneyworld vlogs when I spotted the Mickey Mouse Pretzels....I just had to re-create my own! They're too cute not too!
These pretzels are extremely easy to make and perfectly salty, the way a pretzel should be!
They are soft pretzels, just like bread, absolutely delicious! You won't be disappointed with this recipe! 

Preparation- Approximately 2 hours
Baking time- 8-10 minutes
Makes- Approximately 10 small pretzels or 6 large pertzels
Level- Easy

Ingredients for the pretzel
-7g of dry yeast(1 pack)
- 280ml of warm water
-600g of self-raising flour
-1 teaspoon of salt
-50g of golden caster sugar
-1 teaspoon of light olive oil

Ingredients for the pretzel wash
-900ml of warm water
-80g of bicarbonate of soda
-Pinch of salt
-Vegan butter
-Sea salt

To make the pretzels
Step 1- Place the yeast and warm water into a bowl and set aside for 20 minutes for the yeast to activate.

Step 2- Place the flour, salt, sugar into a large bowl and mix.

Step 3- Once the yeast mixture has activated (frothy on top), pour into the dry mixture along with the oil and begin to kneed.
I used my Kitchenaid with the dough hook attachment, on a low/medium speed until a dough formed. You can always knead by hand.
Step 3- Place the dough ball into a greased bowl, cover with cling film and a tea towel and set in a warm place and allow to rise.
This will take around 2 hours. The dough should double in size.

Step 4- Once the dough has doubled, form into pretzels.

How to form a Micky Mouse pretzel:
1. Roll out a long rope of dough and stick the ends of the rope together with some water to make a large circle.
2. Add on 2 smaller 'half moons' of dough for the ears.
3. Roll out another round of dough for the nose and use water to secure it into place.
4. Add 2 little strips of dough for the eyes, making sure to secure them with water.

Step 6- Dunk the pretzels in the pretzel wash.

To make the pretzel wash
Step 1- Pre-heat your oven to 230 degrees c and line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper.

Step 2- Place the warm water, salt and bicarbonate of soda into a saucepan or bowl.

Step 3- Dunk each pretzel into the wash and place onto the lined trays and sprinkle with sea salt.
Repeat for all of the pretzels.
Step 4- Pop the pretzels into the middle of the oven and bake for 8 minutes, then remove them from the oven, brush over some vegan butter and place back into the oven for 2 more minutes.
This helps achieve the classic golden colour pretzels have.

Step 5- Carefully remove them from the oven allow to cool on a cooling rack for 5 minutes before serving.

Best enjoyed warm or on day of making.
Store in a sealed container.

  1. Nutritional yeast works the same as active dry yeast?

    1. Hello, dry yeast is best for this recipe as it helps the dough rise :) x
