These are great at picnics, parties or just to have around for a snack. Definitely not your typical boring old pretzels. They disapear quick, but if you have any left, store in airtight containers. Time does not include 1 hour sitting time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 package ranch dressing (dry powder)
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 12 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 12 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 12 teaspoon dill weed
  • 2 lbs bavarian pretzels or 2 lbs sourdough hard pretzels (the big fat ones)


  1. Break or smash pretzels into bite sized pieces.
  2. Pour pretzels into baking pans.
  3. (You will probably need 2 rectangular cake pans, foil will do) Mix all other ingredients together and pour over pretzels.
  4. Stir to make sure they are completely coated.
  5. Leave sit for about an hour allowing flavors to soak in and then preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes, stirring once or twice.
  7. Allow to cool and store in air tight containers.

I have made these many, many times - but with mini-ritz crackers. I tried the pretzels and they were awesome too!! This is a great recip for snacking on - I add a bit more dill-weed to mine - gives it bit more "zip". Great recipe!!

Love this recipe. I found this several years ago in a local church cook book and make them frequently. My recipe calls for 1/2-1 c. oil (peanut or olive oil)-I use the lesser amount. It also is made using 1 tsp. of each of the spices instead of 1/2 tsp. I usually use bite size "little ones" pretzels instead of hard pretzels (personal preference). Delicious and simple to make - always a hit. Totally addicting!! Thanks for posting a winning reciped!
