How to Make Mickey Mouse Pretzels

Add warm water, sugar, and yeast to a large bowl.

Whisk to dissolve the yeast.

Set aside for 5-10 minutes or until foamy.

Add the flour, salt, and melted butter. Using your hands, mix until the dough forms. Knead the pretzel dough using your hands for 8-10 minutes or until the dough is smooth. Grease a large bowl.

Add the pretzel dough to the greased bowl.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap.

Put the covered bowl in a warm place for about 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Prepare the baking sheet with parchment paper.

Put the pretzel dough on a counter. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces.

Roll out each of the 8 pieces of dough into 24-inch ropes.

Begin by making a U-shape with the rope by holding each end of the dough rope.

Twist the rope into the shape of Mickey Mouse by laying part of the rope flat on the surface and horizontally then curve into a circle on the left to make the left ear.

Make sure to have a few in of dough poking out from the circle like shown in this image.
