Snack time

Ok I'm going to share with you one of the best snacks to make. They are Dilly Ranch Pretzels of yummyness ! They are so good , that i just made a batch of these babies yesterday, and between my roommate and I they are all gone. They are very favorful and I don't know why any pretzel company doesn't make them ! I first discovered these over the christmas holidays , when a friend of the family gave them out as gifts ! I had to snag the recipe after just having a handful . So please make some , and I promise you won't go wrong.

What you need...

16 oz. bag of pretzels.
one stick of butter.
1/2 cup canola oil
Ranch Dip packet
1 tbsp. dillweed
1 tbsp. lemon pepper

The pretzels either need to be the hard pretzels that you break up into small pieces or the nuggets that have the tops open. That might sound confusing, but basically you need some part of the white inside of the pretzel showing for the oil to absorb in to. Pretzels that are dark brown all over won't taste as good because the seasonings only cling to the outside instead of absorbing into the pretzel.

What to do ...

Preheat your oven to 275 degrees.

Melt one stick of butter. While that is melting, put your pretzels in a large bowl and sprinkle 1/2 of a packet of powdered ranch dip mix on the pretzels. Mix to coat pretzels with the powder.
Add to melted butter:
1/2 cup canola oil
rest of Ranch Dip packet
1 tbsp. dillweed
1 tbsp. lemon pepper

Mix thoroughly and pour over pretzels. Stir to coat pretzels evenly. Cover rectangle cookie sheet with foil and spread pretzels on the foil in an even layer. Bake in 275 degree oven for 25 minutes. Cool completely before stirring.

Enjoy !
