"Who needs all the distractions offered by typical party mixes? It's the toasted, seasoned pretzels you really want! This recipe is simple, and particularly tasty when straight from the oven."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (1 ounce) package

ground cayenne pepper
1 (15 ounce) package
mini twist pretzels
I made a few changes to this recipe and it turned out awesome!! I put everything in a ziplock baggie and let sit for an hour rotating every 15mins or so. Then I baked the pretzels on a jelly roll pan for 5 mins at 350. Sooooo Goooood!
I may have done something wrong, but my pretzels burned in the oven after about 40 minutes. Every time I opened the door to stir the pretzels, my eyes watered! I ended up tossing the whole project out. It might have been an oven problem so make sure your oven is correct before setting out to make these. They sounded good; if they hadn't burned, they probably would have been...
I have made these a lot and they are always good. I did have to make a couple of changes....I put all the ingredients into a large zip-top bag and let the pretzels "soak up" the oil and spices for at least 30 minutes(or more), turn the bag often; also I baked at 250 for 30 to 45 minutes. Perfect! Thanks for sharing!!
These are great. I love them. The ranch dressing gives a great flavor. Since I was making for children I left out the cayenne.
The recipe is great. I bake them at 200° for an hour instead of 350° and they don't get too brown or burn.
I reduced the temp to 250 and my pretzels didnt burn, they may be a little spicy for kids But we love em!!!
THe flavor of this was very good. I did use broken pretzel pieces instead of mini pretzels because I like them more. I also cut down on the cayenne pepper because my boyfriend is not a fan of spicy food. I left them in the oven for about 15 mnutes and they were done. I will also reduce oven temp next time. They were excellent in taste though, and I will make again with those minor adjustments.
These were "good" - not bad (and certainly they were easy to make) but my tongue didn't do the cha-cha either. Thanks to others, I baked mine at 250 for an hour, stirring every 15 min and since my daughter would probally snack on these, I reduced the cayenne by half. I was worried the ranch would make these too salty but they were fine. I would make these again when I need a change from plain 'ol pretzels, but I don't think I'll crave them often. Thanks for the new idea K. Tansey!
