The host of Pretend Cooking Show on her social media, Jennifer Garner, 47 showed her fans how she made a savory snack after her son, Samuel told her that she eats too much of candy.

On 7 March 2020, Jennifer put up an Instagram video and in it at the start, she said:

“[My son] said to me yesterday, ‘Mom you have had too much candy. It’s time to stop,’”

She continued:

“Well, that’s too big, when a kid can tell you you’ve had too much candy, but he didn’t say anything about soft pretzels!”

Jennifer Garner’s recipe for Pretzels

The host and mother-of-three found a great recipe to make the salty snack on a website of the culinary professional Alton Brown, 57. Firstly, the gorgeous lady activated yeast. She stated:

“When you’re activating yeast, you just want to take the chill off,”

She added warm water to the dry yeast and said:

“You don’t want to kill the yeast when you’re trying to activate it.”

Jennifer then added flour and sugar to the mixture as detailed in Alton’s recipe. She said:

“If you don’t mind sir, I’m going to add the salt here,”

She felt that adding salt to the yeast mixture might kill the yeast and hence she preferred to add it at this state. After this, she added sone butter and more flour to the mixture. Using an electric mixer, she combined the things well and said:

“If you use one of these big mixers, I think it’s worth it to start [with the] paddle [and then] go hook,”

She proofed the dough, shaped it into pretzels, and after a brief placement in boiling water, put them in the oven. Jennifer said:

“If anyone tries to suggest that you aren’t beautiful – they might be right. That’s how my kids now I made it. If it looks just a little sketchy, they know it’s mom.”

And in the caption of this Instagram video, she wrote:

“If you’re looking to have a Good Mom Day ????, homemade soft pretzels should do the trick. ♥️♥️ Perfect for passing back to kids on their way to soccer/swim/ballet/coding/piano,”

“I’ve tried a bunch of recipes ???????? and love @altonbrown’s.”

Tasting the finished product, she said:

Wow! Lord have mercy this is good!”
