Homemade Pretzel Rolls


My two year old son Adam is a very picky eater.  So when he likes something and actually asks for it again it is a big deal!  Long story short: he lately tried a pretzel roll and absolutely loved it!  But I wasn't willing to keep buying it from the store all the time.  Besides, I like to bake when it's cold out. I have tried a few different recipes, and after experimenting I found this one the best so far.  I heard that in order to get the very true pretzel flavor and dark brown color people use a lye solution, which is a kind of a dangerous item to deal with!  Well, I am ok to give my pretzels a simple baking soda bath that is just easy, because everyone has baking soda handy.
Here we go!
