"Large, salted sourdough pretzels work best for this appetizer. The marinade gives them a tangy, addictive flavor that's wonderful for parties, and goes well with any beverage."

I make these all the time but the cook time and meaurements are different. I use about 3/4 of a pound bag of pretzels, 1 package of ranch, 1 tablesspoon garlic powder and 1 tablespoon of dried dill and definitely not olive oil! Use vegetable oil and use just slightly over 1/2 a cup. Cook at 250 and stir to coat every 15 minutes for 1 hour. I promise they will be perfection. I have made them for years and they have been a hit, each and every time.


My family makes pretzels similar to these...however they don't need to be baked. Prepare and let the pretzels "marinate" in the oil mixture for 8 to 10 hours (shaking or stirring every so often to get the oil distributed) and the mixture will soak into the pretzels. Also, replace the oil with popcorn oil for added flavor (as mentioned by another reviewer as having done). These are addicting!


These were so easy and went over very well at a Supebowl party. I did use vegetable oil as per some reviewers advice. While I love olive oil it does have a very distinctive flavor that I just didn't see lending itself well to such a "snacky" food. I used 1 tbls of both the garlic powder and dill as well, again per reviewers advice. I will certainly make these again and again.
