    Chef Shadows's Note:

    These are so addictive! I gave this recipe to some folks who now make 2 batches a week! This was given to me by Joyce, a co-worker. Note : Please use the large pretzels broken into pieces, these absorb the oil and flavor better then nuggets, or small twists. added: 10/29/08

      These turned out really yummy! The only bad thing that I noticed was that even though I added 1 tsp of garlic powder instead of the different salts it was still a bit salty. I did however add a little extra ranch powder which might have made it too salty. I also about halfway through baking added about a 1/4 cup parm cheese. I also added twice the cayenne pepper, however next time I think I'll add paprika instead. Also add 1/2 a cup of parm cheese at the beginning and less ranch.

      I love to make these pretzels - I use WAY less oil - and 2 pounds of pretzels - then 1 packet of ranch and 1 packet of Good Seasons Italian... sometimes some additional garlic and onion powder - but no additional salt... everyone loves these!

      In response to Linda's Post. Linda, I 100% agreed with you the first time I made this. However, I would like to see you try it again and do the following. Do not use garlic salt, use garlic powder and do the same for the onion salt, use powder. I also do not put in the kosher salt or the cayenne peper. However, I do double everything, using powder of course, except the oil and ranch mix. One last change, right before you place them in the oven, sprinkle some parm cheese on them. I am willing to bet you will change you mind. Hope this helps!!
