Categories: German, Special
Yield: 8 servings
1/2 c Butter Or Margarine
1/4 c Sugar

1 t Vanilla Extract
1/4 c Milk
1/4 c Cocoa
2 c Flour; Unbleached, Unsifted

Cream 1/2 cup butter and the sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in

mixture until thoroughly blended. Chill dough until firm enough to
handle (about 30 minutes). Using 2 T dough, roll a rope about 12
inches long between your hands. Shape into a pretzel as follows:
Make a loop bout 1 1/2 inches in diameter by crossing the ends,
leaving 1-inch tails. Flip the loop down over the crossed ends.
Press firmly into place. Place pretzels on greased baking sheets.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for about 10 minutes. Mak frosting in a small
bowl. Mix cocoa and confectioners' sugar. Gradually stir in butter
and vanilla. If frosting is too thick, thin with milk. When pretzels
are cool, spread with Cocoa Frosting.
Make 2 dozen.
