In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt. Make a well in the center; add the butter and yeast mixture. Mix and form into a dough. If the mixture is dry, add one or two tablespoons of water. Knead the dough until smooth, about 7 to 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). In a large bowl, dissolve baking soda in hot water.
When risen, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a rope and twist into a pretzel shape. Once all of the dough is all shaped, dip each pretzel into the baking soda solution and place on a greased baking sheet. Brush on melted butter.
If desired, instead of making into ropes, you can wrap around hot dogs.
Sprinkle with kosher salt if making a salty pretzel.
Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes, until browned.
If you want to have a cinnamon pretzel, brush the hot cooked pretzels with melted butter and sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.

These pictures are from a long long time ago when I had my sister in law and nephew at our house visiting. We decided to make a batch of pretzels and the fun ensued. I prepared the dough in advance and then let everyone make their own.
We made ones with kosher salt, parmesan cheese, cinnamon sugar and even some wrapped around hot dogs.
By the end, we just made little pretzel bites since we were getting tired…
But my favorite was definitely the cinnamon sugar ones…
Well, I think that’s enough pictures. ENJOY!
