So I added these spicy pretzels and the cinnamon sugar pretzels to my Christmas basket the past two years….they are totally addicting, cheap, and best of all–super easy!! They are a nice balanced flavor, I’ve had some pretzels that were a little heavy on one spice and almost ‘burned’ my mouth with that flavor. I got the recipe from one of my hubby’s granny, who got it from a friend. This makes a great snack to take to parties, most people really like them and you can just put a little less of the spice mix on the pretzels if they are too spicy. I also added the Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels to the bags this year. They were a nice sweet addition. Here’s how to make them!
3 16 oz. bags of pretzels- I got mine at the $ Tree
1 Cup vegetable oil
1 packet of ranch seasoning mix
2 teaspoons cayenne powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. In a glass measuring cup, measure out your veggie oil, add spices and seasoning packet. Whisk until combined. Open your bag of pretzels and pour a third of your seasonings/oil into the bag. Squeeze the top shut and shake, shake, shake!! I also roll the bag and smoosh the pretzels as I do it. Then just open the bag and pour them out onto a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining two bags of pretzels. Put into the oven and bake for an hour. Take them out and let cool completely on the baking sheet. Store in an airtight container or ziploc baggie.
