READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by GrannyHen

These are great to bag up for gifts or to just have around for family snacks. The not so spicey version was a hit for the 2nd grade Christmas party and the little ones at the family gathering. The spicy version was a hit at the family Christmas gathering.

Per a discussion on the community board, I received this recipe for the 4H Cloverbuds. The kids loved making them. Later, I made a batch for the family, and Eldest Daughter took some to the break room at work. They were a hit there too. These get rave reviews wherever I serve them. Note: little kids get 1/4 tsp of cayenne in their batch; grownups get the full 1 1/2 tsp.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup oil
  • 12 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 12 teaspoon garlic (use granules)
  • 1 (1 ounce) package dry ranch dressing mix
  • 1 -1 12 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 (16 ounce) bag pretzels (use small clover shaped or sticks, the big ones break when you stir)


  1. Mix everything except pretzels in a large bowl(I use a big plastic salad bowl).
  2. Just a pinch of cayenne for the little ones.
  3. Pour pretzels in on top of the sauce. Stir until well coated. I just toss it like a salad.
  4. Make sure all of the goodies are off of the bottom of the bowl and on the pretzels.
  5. You can eat them right away, but they are less messy if you let them sit a bit while the pretzels absorb the oil.
  6. Store in an airtight container.
  7. Enjoy!
