How to Make Zippy Pretzels

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Pour oil into 2-cup glass measuring cup. Add ranch mix, garlic powder and cayenne pepper.
  3. Whisk oil and spices thoroughly together.
  4. Shake pretzel bag vigorously to knock off much of packaged salt. Discard salt. Place pretzels on ungreased baking pan.
  5. Pour oil over pretzels. Use rubber scraper to get all oil out of cup. Gently stir pretzels until all are coated with oil mixture.
  6. Bake, uncovered for 90 minutes, stirring every 20 minutes.
  7. Remove from baking pan and cool completely (about 30 minutes.) Store cold pretzels in airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 weeks.
  8. Cook note: 1 tsp of cayenne gives this a nice but not overwhelming zip. Adjust amount as needed to your taste.
