      I make a similar recipe, except I use the small pretzel twist , spicy ranch packet, colemans dry mustard, garlic powder, lemon pepper & canola oil. I eye ball the measurements then I mix in a very large bowl , pour onto a parchment lined baking sheet to dry for about an hour then I store them in an " UTZ" pretzel container that I purchased from SAMS. My husband loves these little guys and he lets me know when the stash is getting low lol....

      Like other reviewers, I let this mix sit a few days. It still seemed a tad oily, so just before serving, I put it in a brown grocery bag, shook it around, and let it absorb any excess oil. Personally I thought this mix was too salty, but it was heartily eaten by guests. I followed a reviewer's suggestion of adding chex cereal to it as well (50/50 mix).

      I've made this a dozen times but without the lemon pepper, we used dill. I think the small round pretzels are the best because they hold the tasty stuff better. They do taste better on day 2 or 3 if you can save some for later. My sister also started making it with regular oil and some butter buds, I think about a Tablespoon or so.
