  • 1 3/4 cups water luke-warm
  • 1 tablespoon instant dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons sriracha sauce divided
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking soda
  • 3 oz cheddar cheese 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup butter melted


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the water, yeast, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons sriracha sauce, and flour. Using a dough hook, mix on low until the flour begins to combine. Increase the speed to medium and knead until a dough ball forms.
  • Let rise in a lightly greased bowl for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray. Fill a medium-size saucepan with water and stir in baking soda. Bring to a boil.
  • Pull off walnut-sized pieces of dough. Press a cheddar cheese cube into the center and pinch dough to seal the cheese inside, forming a ball. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Working in batches, put dough balls into boiling water for 1 minute. Remove and place directly onto baking sheet.
  • Bake at 500 degrees for about 5 minutes, until dark brown.
  • Mix together melted butter and remaining 2 tablespoons of sriracha. Brush over hot pretzel bites.
