Garlic and Parmesan Pretzel Bites with Cheddar Cheese Dip

I have recently discovered that I enjoy cooking, and I'm not too bad at it either.  So, I thought, why not make a blog where I can post my recipes?  So, here it is.  The first recipe I am posting is for homemade garlic and parmesan pretzel bites and cheddar cheese dip.  These were gone in a flash once Kyle got ahold of them, and Jaidyn liked them too!

Pretzel Ingredients:

Texas Style Rhodes frozen rolls, each roll makes 4 bites
Kosher, coarse salt
Garlic salt
Paremsan cheese
Bowl of melted butter

Preheat over to 375. There aren't really any measurements for this recipe, it all depends on how many bites you want to make.  Take two small bowls.  In one combined the salt and a little bit of garlic salt.  I added way too much, so be careful with the garlic!  In a second bowl, add parmesan.  Take as many unthawed rolls as you'd like, and cut in half, then in half again so that you have four equal pieces from each roll.  Roll each piece into balls.  Place on a greased baking sheet, then cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Allow bites to rise for about 40-45 minutes.  While dough is rising, boil a pot of water.  After the dough has risen, plop a few pieces of dough in the water at a time, and stir for about 45 seconds.  Remove with a slotted spoon, and place on paper towels to allow water to drain off.  Place bites on a greased baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.  Once baked, brush each bite with butter, sprinkle the salt/garlic mixture on, and roll in parmesan cheese.

Cheese Dip Ingredients

1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp flour
1 cup milk
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.  Add flour and stir until mixture turns light golden brown.  Whisk in milk and cook until thickened slightly.  Remove from heat, and stir in cheddar cheese until melted.

I promise these are so delicious that my husband told me I should sell them!
