Snack Attack!

My friend Amber introduced me to this seasoning technique for crackers and pretzels and it's so easy that I don't think I'll eat a plain bag of pretzels ever again! My measurements were to scale for the size bag of pretzels I used - adjust as necessary.

Ranch Pretzels
(Source: Amber's Delectable Delights)

9-oz. bag pretzels
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1-oz. packet Hidden Valley Ranch Dips
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

2. Place the pretzels in a gallon-size ziploc bag. Add the oil, seal the bag and toss to coat. Add the dry ingredients to the bag, seal and toss again until all of the pretzels are coated.

3. Spread the pretzels out on a large baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the oil has absorbed into the pretzels. Cool and store in an airtight container.

Amber = pretzels. No really, I think if you look up pretzels in the dictionary you'll see her picture.

Tag you're it! Check out my blog for more info

Sounds like a great way to dress up plain ol' pretzels! :)

I am glad you enjoyed these. Making them is how I get my fill of ranch without having a heavy mayo based dressing. And since my husband does not like ranch I know he won't eat them and I will have them all to myself. HAHAHA ;)
