When my friend gave me this recipe, she called them "Crack Pretzels"... she said they were like crack because you couldn't stop eating them! ha ha! The first time I made these, I thought my husband was gonna make himself SICK eating them!! I am now requested to make them for every get-together, every football viewing, & occasionally just because my husband hasn't had them in a while! They are super easy & VERY yummy! Enjoy!

Wowza! These spicy pretzels are fantastic. They pack a punch of ranch flavor combined with the spice of cayenne pepper. The coating is the perfect balance to the salty pretzels. Truly, they are addictive and you may have a hard time not snacking on them. A great game day snack and perfect for parties.

How To Make spicy pretzels aka "crack pretzels"!!!

  • Pretzels, seasonings, and oil in a resealable bag.
    Put pretzels in a gallon resealable bag. Mix cayenne pepper, lemon pepper, garlic powder, ranch, and canola oil together. Pour over pretzels in baggie. It's best if you can leave overnight but a couple of hours will work, too. I always bag them the night before and cook them the next morning.
