Pretzel Bites

So, it's been quite some time since we've posted anything.  Our families have kept us so busy the last little while.  Hopefully we'll be able to get back on track.  I just made these awesome pretzel bites that I came across on pinterest.  They are so yummy and easy.  This website is full of many wonderful recipes.  Check it out sometime.  Here's a link with pictures of these yummy balls of goodness!
Texas size Rhodes Frozen roll dough
*as many as you like – each roll makes four bites
I think you could get six small ones from each roll

Take a thawed roll. Cut it in four(or 6) equal sections. Place dough bites on greased sheets. Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, and let dough rise until double in size. (about 35-45 minutes) Bring a large pot of water to a gentle boil. When dough has risen, plop about 10 pieces into the boiling water, tossing gently for about 45 seconds. Remove with slotted spoon, and place bites on paper towels to drain slightly. Move bites to greased baking sheets, and bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes or until done and golden brown.

Brush bites with melted butter, sprinkle with Kosher or Sea Salt, garlic and toss in Parmesan cheese. You can also make Cinnamon and Sugar bites. Make a mixture of Cinnamon and sugar: About 1 cup sugar and 1 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon, and mix together well. After you butter the pretzel bites, toss in cinnamon and sugar mixture.
There are a couple dipping sauces that you can find also on the website.
