Hello! This is Trevor again. Today for Project Penguin we are making candy cane soft pretzels!
Here's the recipe so you can make your own.
1 pkg yeast 1.5 tsp. sugar
1.5 c. water 4 c. flour
3/4 tsp. salt 1 egg
red food color
Heat water to approximately 110˚F and add yeast. Stir until dissolved. Add salt, sugar, and flour, then stir to combine. Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic (approximately 10 minutes). Divide the dough into 24 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a pencil-shaped roll, approximately 12 inches long. Split the roll in half, then twist the two pieces together. Place the pretzel on an ungreased pan, curving the top to form the crook of the candy cane. Beat the egg, then add a small amount of red food color. When the egg is the shade you want, use a food-safe paintbrush to paint the egg on every other stripe of the candy cane. Sprinkle lightly with salt (optional). Bake at 400˚F for 12 to 15 minutes.
