Zesty Ranch Pretzels

Gift Bags of Zesty Ranch Pretzels

This is one of those snacks that is addicting. Once you eat one you have trouble stopping and they’re incredibly easy to make! I have my sister-in-law Meg to thank for this recipe. She brought these to one of our Thanksgiving or Christmas gatherings and everyone loved them. They are great for any kind of party and are a welcome little Christmas gift for co-workers when bagged up in those little cellophane Christmas bags. I made up six pounds of pretzels which yielded about 30 gift bags.

16 oz. bag of miniature pretzels
1 C. oil
1 pkg. of dry Ranch dressing mix
1 t. cayenne pepper
1 t. garlic powder

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Mix the seasonings with the oil. Pour the oil mixture over the pretzels that have been placed in a large bowl and mix well. Let sit for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes or so. Spread on a large cookie sheet and bake for 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes.
