I use my own homemade dry ranch dressing mix and I up the cayenne to a full teaspoon. We LOVE these pretzels. I do bake mine but really, it's a personal preferance that I do that and not reflective of the recipe. GREAT movie night snack!

Tasty but too much oil. Has someone prepared this with less oil?

Wow! Pretty much says it all.

I use half a cup of oil and one teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Pretty amazing and easy.

THESE ARE SO GOOD ! It was so hard not to eat them all before I gave them to my daughter. I bought cheap pretzels and had all the other ingredients. I would definitely make these again.
