Well, sadly we can’t go to Disney right now. We are looking for fun ways to try something new. We found a copycat recipe for Disney’s Biergarten Soft Pretzels. We have never made pretzels before but they were super easy! We will definitely make them again. We also switched up the recipe a bit and made a few with Trader Joe’s Everything Bagel topping. They were soooo yummy.

Until we can go to Disney again, we will make these and enjoy them.
