Mozzarella Stuffed Soft Pretzels

Mozzarella Stuffed Soft Pretzels

Ooey-gooey cheese stuffed inside of soft pretzels - yes, they are as delicious as they sound! 


Yields 8 Servings
  • 1 1/2 c. warm water
  • 1 Tbsp. Firebee Raw Honey
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 c. melted butter
  • 8 mozzarella cheese sticks, cut in half lengthwise
  • 10 c. water
  • 2/3 c. baking soda
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 Tbsp. water
  • Coarse Sea Salt


Step 1

Combine the 1 1/2 cups of water, Firebee Raw Honey, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Sprinkle the yeast on top of the mixture and allow it to sit for about 5 minutes, or until it is foamy.

Step 2

Add the flour and melted butter using the dough hook attachment on low speed until combined. Change to medium speed and allow it to run for 5 minutes, until the dough is smooth and pulls away from the bowl.

Step 3

Place the dough in a large, oiled bowl and cover with a damp towel. Place in a warm area for about an hour to rise until doubled in size.

Step 4

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare two large sheet pans by lining them with parchment paper. 

Step 5

In a large pot, add the 10 cups of water and the baking soda. Bring to a boil. 

Step 6

While the water is heating, divide your dough into 8 pieces. Roll each piece out into a 14 inch rope. Take each rope and flatten it to about 2 inches wide.

Step 7

Add the cheese pieces to the dough and roll up around it, pinching the seams together and rolling it back into a rope. Next, make a U shape from the rope and cross the ends over each other. Press into place.

Step 8

Add the pretzels, one at a time, to the boiling water for about 30 seconds. Remove them with a slotted spoon and place onto the prepared sheet pans.

Step 9

Brush each one with the egg wash (egg yolk and 1 tablespoon of water mixed together) and top with the coarse salt. Bake until dark, golden brown - approximately 12 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and enjoy!
