    This recipe I used to make chocolate pretzels which includes like, 1 egg, flour, cocoa powder, butter and sugar. It said to beat the butter and sugar which I did then beat egg and I did. then sift flour and cocoa powder and mix. I did that but my mixture looked too floury.....I have no idea why. in the image it showed a nice brown soft dough but mine wasnt even adough it wouldnt even combine together when I use my hands. I added some melted butter, some of it joined but some didnt. It said to let it rest in fridge for 15 minutes which I put it in there and I hope it works. Idk what went wrong

    and are you using volume measurements for your flour/cocoa?

    I used a kitchen scale to measure my flour and cocoa. coming to think of it, I did remember seeing 300g flour when I shouldve had 280...

    so you added extra flour and your dough turned out too flour-y? ;)

    we've all been there :)

    Haha yup :p Anyways it's okay now, I saved it with some more melted butter (don't know if it's saved) but I baked it and it tastes good :D Yay for mistakes!
