Once dough is made:
Remove the dough from the bowl or the bread machine, place on a lightly floured surface, and knead into a ball with your hands.
Lightly oil a bowl, and place the dough in the bowl. Turn the dough to coat the dough with the oil. Cover the bowl with a clean towel or plastic wrap and place in a warm spot until the dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.
Remove the dough from the bowl and place on a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces, about 4 ¼ to 4 ½ ounces each. Roll each piece into a long rope measuring about 22 inches.
Cut the dough into approximately one-inch pieces to make the pretzel bites. Boil the pretzel bites in the baking soda-water solution, in batches, about 15 at a time. Boil for about 30 seconds.
Recipe Notes For the serving size, I figured roughly 5 pieces per person is a serving. Of course, this will vary if you have hungry people who eat more bites!
