At our last poker party, someone brought these and they were absolutely to-die-for! I had to have the recipe and made a batch of my own right away. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
- 30 oz pretzels
- ¾ c olive oil
- 1 - 1 ounce package of dry Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix
- 3 tbsp garlic powder
- 3 tbsp dried dill weed
- In a small bowl mix the olive oil and all the spices together.
- Pour over the pretzels in a large bowl.
- Marinate for 1 hour, tossing every 10 minutes or so.
Note: Some recipes I’ve seen suggest baking the pretzels after they’ve marinated for about 20 minutes at 250 degrees. I have not baked them and they turn out great.
If you like the recipe above and want to experiment, here are a few other blends. Use the same directions above…just substitute the spice portion.
Cinnamon and Sugar Pretzels
- 1/2 c sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
Hot and Spicy Taco Pretzels
- 1 packet taco seasoning mix – use the version you like best
Garlic and Parmesan Pretzels
- 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tsp dried dill
- 2 tsp granulated garlic
Spicy Seasoned Pretzels
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- 2 tsp lemon pepper
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
Disclaimer: While I know we have become a very visual world and an image of the food that’s been prepared from a recipe can be very appealing, I remember a day when good ole’ Betty Crocker was the best cookbook out there and had no pictures by any of the recipes. We used that baby like there was no tomorrow…trusting that it would turn out great. I have found remember AND getting a good photo of my food is quite a challenge and I don’t want that to hold me back from sharing here so I’ll be kickin’ it old school and not necessarily be including an exact picture of the finished product. If I’ve got one, it will definitely be here. Otherwise, I’ll be using a mindfully chosen image of some of the ingredients included or something similar. If you don’t see an image here of the finished product, read the ingredients, close your eyes and imagine everything blending together into one wonderful dish for you to enjoy! Don’t let the lack of a picture hold you back in the kitchen. Be creative and have fun!!
