I have been looking for this recipe for years! I used to have these when I lived in Pittsburgh and loved them! Yes, they are salty and all, but that is one of the things that makes them so good! I am so excited to find this recipe! Thank you southernbelle19!!!! These are so so so so wonderful with beer. Thanks!
I don't know how my experience could have been so different than so many other reviewers. I thought that I would love these. Followed directions exactly except that I mixed the ingredients together in a bag first as many reviewers suggested. After only about 40 minutes of cooking these looked like they were burning. After taking them out and cooling, they tasted dreadful. Burned and bitter. Sorry. We will not make these again.
Great way to jazz up plain old pretzels. I used only 3/4 cup of butter and they turned out perfect. To blend, I put my pretzels in a ziploc bag and poured the butter mixture inside; sealed it up and tossed to coat. Got great coverage that way.
Instead of butter, I used 1/2 cup of vegetable oil (so there's less of a chance of it going rancid before we eat it and to cut back on the fat just a bit) and I used my own homemade MSG-free/reduced salt onion soup "mix". A whole bag of "tiny twists" was perfect for this recipe. This was great, though I'd like to add some dill next time. That's a personal addition, no reflection on the original recipe. We all enjoyed these at family movie time.....even the husband! NOTE: Definitely don't skip the baking step. You might have an issue with soggy pretzels later if you do. Whatever you don't eat will keep well in air-tight Tupperware or freezer bags.
I'm sure these would have turned out a little better if maybe I cooked them longer. Reading everyones reviews before I made them had me so nervous about burning them that I think I undercooked them so they were kind of stale more than they were crunchy. Either way they still had a really good flavor to them. I'll definitely make these again but just cook them to the time in the recipe as opposed to going by what others have said.
Easy and tasty! I used 20 ounces of dipping sticks. I just tossed them in a large bowl (one bag at a time) and spread them on a full sheet pan. I only baked for 45 minutes. Fun snack for poker night!
Konwal, I feel your pain. I had a similiar experience. The butter mixture did not stick to the pretzels. 250 is a very low cooking temperature but the pretzels burned regardless. As written, I cannot recommend this recipe.
I use half the butter, and melt it in a big microwave safe bowl. I stir in the remaining ingredients and then toss in the pretzels. Microwave for three minutes stiring after each one. (heat 60 sec, stir, heat 60 sec, stir, heat and stir one more time and allow to cool. I also use a mixture of sticks and mini twists.
