Sylvia had the idea recently to make 'chocolate pretzels', which were made on a television show she watches.
We used the recipe for Play Pretzels from Vegan Lunch Box. They are simple, include wholemeal flour and you don't need to wait for the dough to rise.
|S for Sylvia!|
And on the topic of dough, for all those in search for the perfect homemade playdough recipe, try this one from Green Gourmet Giraffe. It's the best one we've made yet - thanks Johanna!
Chocolate coated play pretzels (slightly adapted from Play Pretzels in Vegan Lunch Box by Jennifer McCann)
2/3 cup all purpose white flour
2/3 cup wholemeal flour
1 sachet of yeast (7gm)
1/2 cup warm water
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 cup vegan chocolate chips, melted
Preheat oven to 220C.
Mix together the yeast, sugar and water and set aside for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the flours and salt in a bowl. Add the yeast mixture to the flour and mix well. Knead for a minute or so until smooth. The original recipe says to leave the dough for 10 minutes. We did this the first time, but not the other times and they turned out fine so I don't think this is essential.
Break off bits of the dough and roll into long strips to make shapes. Bake for about 10 minutes.
Leave them to cool for a few minutes, then coat in the melted chocolate. Leave to set or eat immediately!
