a very (Wild)fox-y Valentine's

Oh Valentine's Day, we meet again! OR, as we like to 
call it GALentine's day. We like to celebrate the 
magic of everlasting friendship this time of year.
And what better way to do so then with a little Wildfox.
We've fallen in love recently with the Wildfox Valentine's 
collection. Why not treat yourself this year...
or a special Galentine!
Stay Wild, Stay Foxy!

Homemade Heart Shaped Soft Pretzels

What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day
then to spread the love with heart shaped
soft pretzels?

You will need:
1 egg
2 rolls of Pillsbury Dough
Sea Salt
1/4 c. baking soda
10 c. water
cooking pan
cooking spray
wax paper

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Take your 10 c. of water, and 1/4 c of baking soda
and combine into a sauce pan. Bring combination
to a rolling boil.

While your water is waiting to boil,
take your roll of Pillsbury dough, and lay it out on
your wax paper. Begin to break your dough into even
sections. Each roll of dough should make about 8
pretzels. Once seperated, roll your dough into long
rope shapes (just like you would if you were making
a normal pretzel). Now, instead of twisting your dough,
meet the ends of your dough, and begin to shape into
a heart shape. Be sure to pinch the ends to seal.

When you are ready, begin to boil your pretzels.
Boil about 2-3 at a time, so you don’t crowd (they will swell).
Bring the temperature down, and simmer for a minute per side. 
Remove from the water  and place on your wax paper .

Take your egg, and mix it in a seperate bowl with
1 c. of water. Brush your egg mixture onto each
Pretzel, then place onto your greased baking sheet.
 Sprinkle with coarse salt.
Bake for 11-14 minutes, or until golden.
Serve with mustard or cheese!
