I have not actually tried the pretzels yet, and I didn't have the big kosher salt to sprinkle on top, but I did brush with butter and salt with regular salt! I will update on the taste in a little bit!!
...Ok, I'm back with an update! The pretzels were FANTASTIC and I will be making again. I think I baked them a little too long because they were more tough on the outside than i would have liked, but the flavor was GREAT!!
