Let's Make It
1
Heat oven to 425°F.
Pretzels
2
Cover 2 baking sheets with parchment; spray with cooking spray.
3
Place pizza dough on lightly floured work surface. Cut into 24 equal pieces. Roll each into 5-inch-long rope, then tie into loose knot as shown in photo. Place on prepared baking sheets. Cover with clean dish towels; set aside.
4
Bring 12 cups (3 qt.) water to boil in Dutch oven. Add baking soda; whisk until blended. Cover additional baking sheet with paper towels.
5
Add dough, in small batches, to boiling water; cook 30 sec. to 1 min. or until dough floats to surface. Use slotted spoon to transfer dough to paper towel-covered baking sheet; let stand 1 min. to drain before returning to parchment-covered baking sheets, placing knots 2 inches apart.
6
Beat egg with 1 Tbsp. water until blended; brush onto dough. Sprinkle with salt.
7
Bake 18 to 22 min. or until pretzels are golden brown. Transfer to wire racks.
Beer Queso

Microwave queso ingredients in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 3 min.; stir. Continue to microwave and stir in 1-min. intervals until VELVEETA is completely melted and queso is well blended.
9
Serve with pretzel knots.
Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
How to Make Cubing the VELVEETA Easier
For easier cubing of the VELVEETA, give the knife blade a light mist of cooking spray first. No more sticking!
Tip 2
Size Wise
Manage portions by using a smaller plate for your snacks. This will help you stick to the recommended serving sizes of your favorite recipes.
