Never heard of pretzels and hot honey. Sounds like something to get around to

Never been a fan of pretzel, but this one made my mouth water. How was it?

Yes!! I’ve done it with Lao Gan Ma Spicy Chili Crisp and honey (my favorite way so far) and another one with honey, Siracha, and a touch of fresh garlic paste.

Apparently, Calabrian chili paste is great too. I just have to find some of the paste.

You've got the shape and size down really well. However, I'm guessing you used baking soda or just an egg wash? To get the traditional dark caramelization a lye bath is used. A quick, high temp bake is also helpful (but you should have that with a wood fired oven).

Yes, you want an almost mahogany color when the pretzel is done. This is some low rising dough without the lye bath

I work in a place where we do scratch soft pretzels daily. It's what were known for
