There’s a Party in Every Pretzel

If I’m being 100% honest, pretzels are NOT my favorite snack.  Not even close.  If they’re covered in chocolate however, count me in!  And if they’re the yummy, delicious, butter- covered, salt-dipped Auntie Ann’s pretzels, well then I’m all over that, too! 

When my sister-in-law, Bobbi, was visiting last month, she introduced me to a recipe that definitely gives me a whole new appreciation for pretzels.  I’m adding these to my list of favorite snacks…they are TO DIE FOR!!!!



1 bag of waffle style pretzels

Garlic powder

Dill weed seasoning

1 packet of dry ranch seasoning

Seasoned salt {optional}

Paprika {optional}

Alright.  Now grab yourself a gallon sized ziplock baggie and fill it up with your bag of waffle pretzels.  1 bag will fit perfectly.

Now, add the popcorn oil.  There’s no exact measurement here, however you’ll wanna be slightly generous with the portion size.  You’ll need to add a bit so that it coats the pretzels because all the little seasonings we’ll add in just a minute will need to stick!

Now, add the dill & garlic powder.  You can add both of these to taste.  Then you’ll add the whole packet of ranch.

Now zip it tight and get to shakin’.  Shake until the pretzels are good and coated.  Maybe 5 minutes or so.

After this step, we went in and added a little seasoned salt and paprika.  We shook it a little more and then poured ‘em in a bowl to dry out.

SO flippin’ YUM!!  These are the kinda pretzels I could eat ALL day long!! 


  1. I will have to try it with pretzels...I have used cheese ritz bits with this recipe for a tailgate snack!

  2. I know you love spicy - try this recipe for pretzels:

    3/4 cup canola oil
    1 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
    3/4 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp cayenne pepper
    1 tsp lemon pepper
    30 oz pretzels (about 2 reg bags)

    Mix all the herbs/spices with the oil. Pour over the pretzels. I usually put everything in a big ziploc. They are better if they stay in the bag overnight.

    I hope you enjoy!!


  3. The Dill recipe sounds wonderful!!Thank you Mrs. OBrien for your recipe because I can use it to base my measurements off of for this recipe.

  4. Thanks, Mrs. O'Brien!! You know me too well :) I'll definitely be trying this SOON!!!

  5. Had a major snafu when I made this...the bag broke wide open and spilled all over the floor...LOL! I persevered though....and they were delicious! Thanks for sharing!!!
