Air Fryer Pretzel Bites


  1. Stir the warm water and yeast together and let sit for 5 minutes until foamy. 
  2. Stir the flour, sugar, and salt together in a large bowl. Add the water and yeast into the flour mixture when it’s foamy and knead until well combined and the dough forms, adding more water a drop at a time if the dough is too dry. 
  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and form into a large ball. Divide the ball into 8 portions, then roll out each portion into a rope. Cut each rope into 8 pieces, each about an inch long. 
  4. Select the Preheat function on the COSORI Air Fryer, adjust temperature to 400°F, then press Start/Pause. 
  5. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the baking soda.  
  6. Boil 12 to 16 pieces of dough at a time. Remove each piece using a slotted spoon when it floats to the top, about 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat the boiling process with the remaining dough. 
  7. Place a single layer of boiled pretzel bites into the preheated air fryer basket. 
  8. Set temperature to 400°F and time to 10 minutes, then press Start/Pause. 
  9. Flip the pretzels over halfway through cooking.  
  10. Remove the pretzel bites when done, toss with melted butter and sprinkle with flaky salt, then serve with honey mustard on the side.
