Auntie Anne's Pretzels

Servings Size: 1
1 1/2 tsp Yeast, 1/2 tsp Brown sugar, 1 tsp Salt, 1 1/2 c Water,
4 c Bread flour, 2 tsp Baking soda, 2 c Warm water, 1/2 lb Butter,
2 Tbsp Honey, White sugar Brown sugar.
Preparation Instructions: Mix yeast, brown sugar, dash of salt
 and 1 1/2 cups water. Let sit for five minutes. Add bread flour.
 Knead well. Let rise for about one hour. Grease baking sheet.
Mix baking soda and warm water. Take a piece of dough and roll
 and shape into a pretzel. The easiest way to shape is to roll
 into a rope, whatever size you prefer. Pinch ends of rope then
 bring ends of rope to other side of circle. Dip pretzels in
 warm water and baking soda mixture and put on baking sheet.
 Bake at 425F for about 12 minutes. While still hot, brush
with melted butter and honey. Sprinkle with white and brown
sugar (approx. half and half mixture).

Arby's® Sauce

Although the beef sandwiches from Arby's would
be very hard to duplicate since they are made
from specially processed beef hunks, thinly sliced,
this fast food chain's barbecue sauce can be cloned
easily. Now you can whip up this slightly tangy
sauce to put on your own homemade sandwich creations,
even barbecued ribs or chicken.

1 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons water
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco pepper sauce

1. Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan and cook
 over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sauce begins
 to boil, 5 to 10 minutes.
2. Remove the sauce from the heat. Cover and allow to cool.
3. Pour into a covered container for storage in your refrigerator.
 Keeps for a month or two.
Makes 1 cup.

Arby's® Jamocha Shake

Okay, wash out the blender; this one's been
 begging to be cloned for years now. Arby's
famous Jamocha Shake was one of the first frozen
 coffee drinks to gain popularity, even before
Starbucks pummeled us with Frappuccinos. This
thick drink is actually more milk shake than
coffee drink, but if you like the original,
 you'll love this easy-to-make clone that serves two.

1 cup cold coffee
1 cup low-fat milk
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 cups vanilla ice cream
3 tablespoons chocolate syrup

1. Combine the coffee, milk, and sugar in a blender and
 mix on medium speed for 15 seconds to dissolve the sugar.
2. Add ice cream, and chocolate syrup then blend on high
speed until smooth and creamy. Stop blender and stir mixture
 with a spoon if necessary to help blend ingredients.
3. Pour drink into two 16-ounce glasses.
Makes 2 large drinks.

Arby's® Bronco Berry® Sauce

This sweet and spicy jelly sauce comes on the side,
in little 1.5-ounce containers, with Arby's battered
jalapeno and cheese Side Kickers. But, you know, you
ust never get enough of the tasty gelatinous goo in
those little dipping packs to use later with your own
home-cooked delicacies.  And isn't it odd that the sauce
is called "Bronco Berry" when there's not a berry to be
found in there?  Sure, the sauce is bright red and sugary,
but you won't find a speck of fruit on the ingredients list.
Nevertheless, the sweet and spicy flavors make this a
delicious jelly sauce that has many uses beyond dipping
quick service finger foods.  For one, use it as a side
for your next batch of lamb chops rather than mint jelly.
It would take more than just a few blister packs to perk
u that meal.

3/4 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
3 tablespoons pectin
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon vinegar
50 drops or 1/4 teaspoon red food coloring
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
dash cayenne pepper
dash garlic powder
dash paprika
1/4 cup minced red bell pepper
1/2 teaspoon minced canned jalapeno peppers 

1. Combine all the ingredients except the bell and minced
 jalapeno peppers in a small saucepan. Whisk well.
2. Set saucepan over medium/high heat, uncovered. Add peppers
 and bring mixture to a full boil, stirring often.
3. Reduce heat and simmer sauce for 5 to 7 minutes, or until
 thick. Remove from heat and let sauce sit for about 10 minutes.
 Stir and cover.
4. Use sauce when it reaches room temperature or cover and chill
 until needed.
