Pumpkin Pretzel Bites are the perfect chewy and soft treats for this fall. Enjoy the chilly weather with hot coffee in one hand and one of these bite-sized sweets in another. 

I love the fall season because the weather is comfortable, not too cold like winter. And treats like these make it even better! Enjoy this dessert together with other fall favorites like Sweet Potato Pie Cupcakes, Apple Bread, and Cranberry Coffee Cake.

Best Pumpkin Pretzel Bites

Pumpkin Pretzel Bites are made with a mixture of spices that scream fall flavors. Feel free to have them any time of the year. The only other ingredient you will need here is the pumpkin spice!

And this spice mixture is the secret to this recipe. It does not even have real pumpkin in it, but it is earthy and flavorful. Also, I like that these are not too sweet. Hence, I get to pair them with almost any drink. Personally, I like these with hot pumpkin latte or chocolate.

From Halloween to Thanksgiving, you can give this away to friends and family as a treat. They are small, so they make for a nice pack of goodies that does not cost a fortune.

And this recipe is not complicated to follow, but on contrary, it is quite easy. These homemade soft pretzel bites are also fun to make at home and enjoy for parties, and game days! You can even have kids help in making them. And the experience will make them want these treats so much more after.

Pumpkin Spice Pretzel Bites Ingredients:

  • Refrigerated biscuit dough: This is the base of the recipe. It is easier to work on it when chilled.
  • Baking soda and water: The baking soda mixture gives the pretzels the chewy exterior.
  • Melted butter: This gives the pieces a golden-brown color and added flavor.
  • Granulated sugar: Along with the spice mixture, you use this to coat the pieces.
  • Pumpkin spice: The best one is to make it at home on your own. Refer to this recipe.

For the specific measurements, refer to the bottom of this post.

How to make Pumpkin Pretzel Bites?

  1. Prepare for baking: Line your baking sheet and preheat the oven.
  2. Roll the dough: Divide the biscuit dough into 6 and roll each one to form a ball. Then, place the pieces on the baking sheet.
  3. Brush the dough: Mix the baking soda in the warm water. Brush each ball with this solution. After about two minutes, brush the butter on the balls.
  4. Bake: Next, bake the pieces until golden brown. Then, set aside to cool.
  5. Coat: In a bowl, mix the sugar and spices. Get each ball and toss into the remaining melted butter then into the spice mixture.
  6. Serve: Serve while still warm.

Topping suggestions:

  • More cinnamon: If you are like me who likes cinnamon, then, coating it with more of this spice is always a good thing.
  • Brown sugar: This gives a nice deeper flavor profile if you do not mind a little bit more sweetness.
  • Honey: It is another sweet option, and it complements the chewiness well.
  • Cream cheese frosting: This pairs well with almost any pumpkin dessert.
  • Glaze: You may use rum or milk for this.
  • Chocolate ganache: This is most popular among kids.
  • Candies: Also, you can easily top them with mini M&M, skittles, or other types of candies.
