Photo Description:

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.
