8 oz of Orville Redenbacher Oil
1 Tablespoon garlic powder (NOT garlic salt)
1 Tablespoon dill weed
1 Packet Original Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix
(If you have the container of Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning, like I do, use 3 tablespoons)
2 1 lb large pretzel twists (the big thick ones!)
2 1 lb pretzel bites
What kind of pretzels can I use?
I like using two different types of pretzels when I make this recipe. One is a thin pretzel, which is U usually break into smaller pretzel pieces. Examples would be pretzel sticks, or mini pretzels.
The larger pretzels I use are often a sourdough pretzel. They are often short but thicker.
Mix all your dry seasonings together (garlic powder, dill weed and Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing)
Add 8 oz of Orville Redenbacher oil to spices/seasonings.
In a large bowl, baking sheet or a roasting pan (gives you more room and has a lid!) add broken large pretzels and pretzel bits.
Drizzle/pour about ¼ of the seasoning & oil mixture. Stir and or shake to make sure the pretzels are evenly covered by the spices. Repeat until all of the seasoning and oil mixture has been added to the pretzels.
Here's the hard part. Give these garlic and dill seasoned pretzels a good 24 hours before serving them. The flavors will soak into the pretzels and will be so delicious!! Make sure to give the pretzels a good stir every hour or so.
Storing these spicy pretzels
These pretzels do not need to bake in the oven. But, for the best flavor, make them the day ahead and shake/stir them up occasionally so the flavors are absorbed by the pretzels.
To store, pour into an airtight container or even in gallon sized platic bags. I often preportion them in mason jars to store or give as gifts. These are nice hostess gifts or neighbor gifts for Christmas.
Store at room temperature for up to a week.

These sound amazing!
I have been making the oyster crackers for years so need to try pretzels. Funny story, many years ago I gave this recipe to a girl at work and she kep complaing how soggy they were. After a few tries I told her to tell me exactly how she was making them. She was pouring bottled ranch on top. Yuck. No wonder they were soggy.
These look delicious and great for a party!!
Salty snacks are my fave; yum!
