Sadly this recipe didn't work out for me at all. After mixing the ingredients in the bag the pretzels were swimming in oil. I've made crackers in a similar style and they dry out. The pretzels never really did. The bag was so oily even a few days later no one was willing to grab pretzels out of it. I dumped the pretzels on paper towels at that point to drain, but was disappointed overall with the flavor and retained oil.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 (8 ounce) package ranch dressing mix
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 (24 ounce) bag pretzels


  1. Place pretzels in a large bowl.
  2. Mix all other ingredients in a seperate bowl and pour the mix over the pretzels.
  3. Mix together well and place into a 2 gallon Ziploac bag (do not use the bad the pretzels are in as it will leak).
  4. Let the Ziploc bag sit for a few hours, flipping ever so often,.
