Place 2-4 frozen pretzels in air fryer basket/rack, in a single layer. Brush tops of pretzels with water and then sprinkle desired amount of pretzel salt from the package of salt in the package, on pretzels.
Air fry at 350 degrees F for 3-5 minutes cook time or until cooked through.
Carefully remove the pretzels from the basket.

I make this recipe in my 5.8 quart Cosori air fryer. Air fryer brands, size and wattages, may require cooking times to be adjusted 1-2 minutes.
If you just want an easy snack for one, you can air fry one or two pretzels as needed. Keep the rest frozen until you are ready to eat them.

For a dessert pretzel, brush the tops of the pretzels with melted butter, and then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Use melted chocolate for dipping.
Once you cook frozen soft pretzels, for a different flavor, brush with melted butter and sprinkle bagel seasoning, or your favorite seasonings, like garlic powder.
STORING AND REHEATING
Store leftover pretzels in an airtight container for 2-3 days. Keep frozen pretzels stored as directed on package.
You can eat these pretzels at room temperature, but if you want them warm, return them to the air fryer for a minute or two.
The directions are similar. You may need a little less time. If you are looking for yummy cinnamon and sugar bites, you can follow this recipe for frozen pretzel bites!
The air fryer can cook food and makes them soft and chewy, just as pretzels should be! No need to thaw them first.
