A few things I changed in this recipe based on the suggestions in the comments were to double the brown sugar and add 3 tablespoons of melted butter to the wet ingredients when making the dough. I have to say that these were the best homemade soft pretzels I've ever had.
I made half cinnamon and sugar and half with rock salt.

Fresh out of the oven.
Salted pretzels. So pretty and so tasty!
