"Pretzels with a bite! This snack is shaken, not baked. Lemon pepper is the secret ingredient, and gives the spice marinade mixture a wonderful zest."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This recipe was so easy and great tasting. I took these to a football game. The fans found them more exciting then the game, and we're talking about die-hard fans. I did do one more step to the recipe. It says for you to marinate the pretzels in a zip lock bag. I did mix it in a zip lock bag, but then put them on a cookie sheet and baked them at 250 for about 15 minutes. That way it soaks up all the liquid. Please try it!
I didn't find these pretzels to be spicey or frankly very good at all. They were saltier but no real added flavor. Perhaps more spice powder would work but I don't think I'll be trying this one again.
I have to agree with the previous person in some respects. I liked these pretzels, but couldn't eat very many of them because they were so incredibly salty. I think you could probably cut the garlic salt in half (or more). I also didn't find them to be extremely spicy-hot, just salty. Again, I did like them, but a little went a long way.
These are great! I used a bunch of mini pretzel balls that I'd bought in bulk for this recipe and they worked just as good as mini twists. I cut WAY down on the oil, probably only 1/6 of a cup that I drizzled over the pretzels that I had in a cake pan. I shook them till they were covered, sprinkled the spice mix (that I used Morton's Hot Salt instead of the cayenne in) over top of them and stuck them in the oven at 325 for probably 15 minutes, stirring a few times. These are definitely addicting.
Excellent - everybody loves them. I used garlic powder (not salt) so they weren't too salty. My first batch was WAY too hot. Now I start with 1/4 of the cayenne and add more as needed (I have extra-hot cayenne). Such an easy snack!
Very good pretzels. I have made 2 batches so far so I could give little bags away. I also added extra cayenne pepper and baked for about 15 minutes to dry them out a little bit. Thanks for a great recipe.
Having a hard time with this rating. Can I choose 4 1/2? Next time I will up the Cayenne & use less powdered Ranch. Several bites I had to cringe with the Ranch taste. Once my tongue settled dow I think I liked it. Kind of like the sour stuff my kids like. Used less oil. Cooked mine at 250 stirring a couple of times for at least 30 minutes. Used nuggets & mini. Thanks!
This is a very good recipe for a tasty snack. I only put about 3/4 teaspoon of the cayanne, because I can't handle extreme hot. It turned out great. A bit of hot, but not overpowering. I also found that if you let them sit for more than the 2 hours they aren't so oily. I let mine sit overnight and they were perfect! I will definately make again!!! Thanks!!!!!
