Storing soft pretzels

I make homemade soft pretzels and I am making them for an Oktoberfest at a friend's house this Saturday. I have to make them on Friday night because we are leaving at 10am Saturday to drive to the party. I am wondering how I should store them.... I was thinking in a brown paper bag so that they can breathe but I want them to stay as fresh as possible. Any suggestions would be greatly apppreciated.

Thanks! Guten Tag!

Paper bag should be just the thing.  Just be sure to let them cool completely.  If they are giving off too much moisture when you bag them, even in paper, the salt (assuming they are salted) will dissolve and leave them looking… considerably less festive.  I speak from experience.

The bag of delicious Oktoberfest pretzels that you send to me should be in plastic because that’s a much longer trip, and I’ll probably warm them up when they get here ;-)

Happy Oktoberfestivities,

Marcus

That is great news!  Thanks for sharing your expertise.  I didn't want to do all of that work and then have them be wrinkled!  Disaster.

Happy fall!
