Spicy Pretzels aka "Crack Pretzels"!!!

Amber Franks


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!

How to Make Spicy Pretzels aka "Crack Pretzels"!!!


  1. Put pretzels in a gallon zip lock bag. Mix cayenne pepper, lemon pepper, garlic powder, ranch & canola oil together...pour over pretzels in zip lock baggie. It's best if you can leave over night but a couple hours will work, too. I always bag them the night before & cook them the next morning.
  2. Spread out on large baking sheet. Bake at 200 for 40 min.
  3. .*** My husband likes a real kick to these, so I double the cayenne, lemon pepper, and garlic salt when mixing the spices…He LOVES them like that!!***
