This ranch pretzel recipe is super easy and fast. I will warn you; it is addictive! The tang from the lemon-pepper mixed with the salty pretzel makes you just reach for more.
Mix up a big double recipe and give some to your neighbors, or invite your friends over to watch the game. Or my favorite option; curl up with a good book in the evening and a a bowl of these snacks! Perfect for winter evenings.
How to make ranch pretzel recipe
Measure the oil in a measuring cup, then add the seasonings. Stir briskly with a fork or small whisk. Place pretzels in a large mixing bowls, and pour the seasoning mixture over them. Stir well with a large spoon.
You will need to stir the pretzels every few minutes for the first 30 minutes, so the seasonings get distributed evenly. I like to make these while i am cooking or cleaning my kitchen, so I am right there to stir it frequently. Otherwise, I forget, haha!
After you have stirred and all the oil has soaked in, store the pretzels in a Ziploc bag or tightly sealed container. I don’t know how long they last – we have always them gone within days!
