  • Mixing Bowls
  • Silicone Spatula
  • Liquid Measuring Cup
  • Measuring Spoons


  • 2 pounds pretzels
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 ounce ranch seasoning packet
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon red cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed


  • Measure olive oil and stir seasonings into oil.
  • Put pretzels in a large mixing bowl and pour seasonings over pretzels. Stir well until olive oil is dried on pretzels.


  • It's tempting to try and mix the pretzels in their original bag, but you'll get best results by pouring them into a larger mixing bowl.
  • Pretzels that have been seasoned and dried may be stored in the original package, but make a note so that people know they won't be getting a plain pretzel.
  • While these are spicy pretzels the spice is not overwhelming to a mild palate like mine, so if you like heat add more cayenne pepper.
  • I find it is easiest to mix up one pound of pretzels at a time and return to the bag for storage or a serving bowl for the party.
  • Start with a new, fresh bag of pretzels for best results.
