Spicy Party Pretzels

I tasted spicy pretzels for the first time at a party last week.  I popped one in my mouth, then another, and another.  I couldn’t stop.  I’m embarrassed because I ate a handful before I could even say “who made these?!”

I never found out who made them for the party but Google helped me with dozens of recipe.  Some were “marinate only” and others “sprinkle and bake.”  I decided to combine marinating overnight and baking for 40 minutes on a low heat.  Results: perfect!

I didn’t even have to go grocery shopping before making these spicy pretzels. Since my chief culinary consultant loves pretzels as a quick and easy snack, we always have a bag of Rolled Gold on hand.  The seasonings are commonly found in most spice cabinets and I even found a packet of ranch dressing at the back of the cupboard.  Ready-set-go!

These pretzels ended up a little “salty” because I used garlic salt instead of garlic powder.  They were too salty.  So be sure and use garlic powder!

Yum, yum, these are delicious, fast, and easy!
Happy Baking!
