Ranch Pretzels

My friend Amber introduced me to this seasoning technique for crackers and pretzels and it’s so easy that I don’t think I’ll eat a plain bag of pretzels ever again! My measurements were to scale for the size bag of pretzels I used – adjust as necessary.

9-oz. bag pretzels
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1-oz. packet Hidden Valley Ranch Dips
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

2. Place the pretzels in a gallon-size ziploc bag. Add the oil, seal the bag and toss to coat. Add the dry ingredients to the bag, seal and toss again until all of the pretzels are coated.

3. Spread the pretzels out on a large baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the oil has absorbed into the pretzels. Cool and store in an airtight container.

    Amber = pretzels. No really, I think if you look up pretzels in the dictionary you’ll see her picture.

    Sounds like a great way to dress up plain ol’ pretzels! 🙂

    Try adding some red pepper flakes and cayanne pepper with the
    ranch dressing. Adds a little zing.

    Try substituting the vegetable oil with Orville Redenbaccher’s butter flavored popcorn oil.

    I used a 16oz bag of pretzels and 1 packet of the seasoning and it was perfect ratio of seasoning! I did add a bit more oil since I used more pretzels.

    These are great! My cousin makes these every year for Christmas…he adds a little lemon pepper to the mix. This mixture is also GREAT on oyster crackers!

    These pretzels are easy and quick to make. When I make mine I just mix everything together and enjoy. You don’t need to bake them
