Let's Make It
1
Add warm water to sugar, yeast and 1 Tbsp. butter in small bowl; stir. Let stand 5 min. or until foamy.
2
Use pulsing action of food processor to process bread flour and 1/2 tsp. salt just until blended. Add yeast mixture; process 1 min. or until mixture is well blended and forms ball that pulls away from side of container.
3
Transfer dough to medium bowl sprayed with cooking spray; turn dough over. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm place 30 min. or until doubled in size.
4
Punch down dough. Divide into 24 equal pieces. Roll each dough piece into 18-inch-long rope. Fold each rope in half, then twist slightly; pinch ends together to seal. Place 12 twists on each of 2 baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray.
5
Heat oven to 425ºF. Place racks on lowest and highest positions in oven. Fill Dutch oven with 2-1/2 qt. (10 cups) water. Add baking soda; stir until dissolved. Bring water just to simmer. Carefully add 6 pretzel twists, 1 at a time, to hot water; cook 1-1/2 min. or until pretzels start to puff, turning after 45 sec. Remove from water with slotted spatula; return to baking sheet. Repeat with remaining pretzel twists using both baking sheets. Sprinkle with remaining salt. Place 1 baking sheet on each oven rack.
6
Bake 13 to 14 min. or until pretzels are lightly browned, switching baking sheets on oven racks after 7 min. Transfer pretzels to wire racks. Melt 2 Tbsp. of the remaining butter; brush onto pretzels.
7
Melt remaining butter in medium saucepan on low heat. Whisk in flour; cook and stir 1 min. Gradually stir in milk, then beer; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until thickened. Stir in mustard. Add shredded cheese and VELVEETA; cook 3 to 5 min. or until completely melted, stirring frequently.
8
Serve with the pretzels.
Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Size Wise
Enjoy eating appetizers at a social occasion, but be mindful of portion size so you don’t overdo it on calories.
Tip 2
Substitute
Prepare using non-alcoholic beer. Or, substitute apple cider for the beer.
Tip 3
Food Facts
Do not bring the water with the baking soda to boil until ready to use. Otherwise, the pretzels might have a bitter baking soda-like flavor.
Tip 4
How to Easily Divide the Dough into 24 Equal-Size Balls
Divide ball of dough in half, then divide each half into 4 equal pieces. Divide each of the 8 dough pieces into 3 equal pieces to get a total of 24 balls. When dividing the dough, keep the other dough pieces covered with a damp towel to help prevent them from drying out.
