Need a Snack That Will Change Your Life?

A snack that will change your life?!

Now I’ve done it; I’ve gone too far.

Hang on. Give me a sec.

I like using hyperbole when I tell you about a recipe I LOVE, mostly because it’s true!

‘PICY!

ADDICTING!

YOU’LL HORDE ‘EM!

All of the above is #truth.

Make ’em. Eat ’em. Horde ’em.

You can send me a nice thank you note later.

Need a Snack That Will Change Your Life?

I share this recipe and story once a year because some things you neeeeed to try.

These pretzels are that good.

If you haven’t made them yet, this is your year.

The Story

I had my first spicy pretzel (we refer to them as ‘picy pretzels) when a friend, our beloved Sue, dropped off a birthday package for Garry.

There they sat, in a ribboned-adorned apothecary jar, looking very ordinary, as pretzels are known to do.

Pretzels being pretzels are not exciting.

Not even when wrapped with a bow.

Garry took off the top of the jar and popped a few pretzels in his mouth.

~BIG EYES OF SURPRISE!~

Huh. That was an interesting reaction to ordinary pretzels.

He silently offered me the jar, which I took, and then tossed a few in my mouth, in birthday pretzel solidarity.

~BIG EYES OF SURPRISE!~

These were no ordinary pretzels.

‘Picy!

Our snacking world tilted that day. These seemingly ordinary pretzels held a surprise; they were baked with a delicious and unexpected kick.

What follows is the recipe that is now held in hallowed esteem in our house.

Enjoy.

Spicy Pretzels

Ingredients:

1 package mini-pretzels (14-16 ounces)

1 cup canola oil

1 package dry Ranch Dip mix (or 2 tbsp. if you buy the larger container)

1 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. Cayenne pepper

Instructions:

Measure the oil into a measuring cup and add all ingredients. Whisk together until full mixed.

Place pretzels in a roasting pan that is at least two inches high (for mixing purposes) and pour oil mixture over entire pan. Mix with a spatula until all pretzels are coated.

Place in over heated to 200°.

Cook for two hours, stirring pretzels every 15 minutes to prevent burning.

Cool, prepare a libation and enjoy.

Notes:

I always double this recipe. Trust.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We eat them; we gift them; we hoard them; we share them.

I like them hot out of the oven. I like them by a roaring fire with an ice cold beer or a Jack and Coke. I like them on the hor d’oeuvres holiday table. I like them in a bowl while watching a Netflix marathon.

Um, I LIKE THEM.

And you will too.

Consider this my gift to you.

Get to baking, gifting, hording and snacking.

These pretzels might just change your life.
