- 10 oz pretzel sticks
- 16 oz potato sticks
- 1 cup canola oil
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 oz dry ranch salad dressing mix
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.
- Whisk together the salt, dressing mix, cayenne pepper and oil.
- Toss the potato sticks and pretzel sticks in another bowl, and then add these to the dressing mixture, tossing it all together well.
- Spread the sticks in 2 ungreased baking pans and bake for an hour, checking often because they can burn quickly.
- Serve these snacks in bowls around the room for your guests to help themselves.
- You can store leftover spicy pretzels in an airtight container for up to a week.
Use any shape of pretzels to make these, such as pretzel twists or sticks, and add some potato sticks to the mix too if you wish. Although you can always serve pretzels just as they are, if you want to put your own stamp on them and offer something ‘homemade’ then you might wish to follow this recipe and add cayenne, garlic and ranch dressing mix to the pretzels. This coating offers plenty of flavor and the pretzels are allowed to gently roast for an hour in the oven so the dressing can dry and stick better, and they get extra crunch in there too.
