  • STEP 1

    Bring the water and the baking soda to a full rolling boil, then reduce heat to a simmer.

    Remove the croissants from the solution and let them drip dry on a baking rack for 1 - 2 minutes.

  • STEP 4

    Place the croissants on baking tray and top them with pretzel or flake sea salt.

    Bake the croissants in the oven at 365°F for 20 - 25 minutes or until desired color is achieved and the croissants are baked through.

Chef's tip

Keep the croissants frozen until they are ready to dip.

You can also use any croissant instead of the curved butter croissant for this recipe.

The pretzel croissant can make a perfect cold cut sandwich.
