Spicy Pretzels

READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Recipe by Chef Mom 5

A lower fat version. Great taste! I make my own ranch dressing mix and omit the salt. It is too salty with the store bought ranch dressing mix. These are pretty spicy. You may want to cut back on the cayenne pepper.

Great spicy pretzels! Perfect name! We really enjoyed the amount of cayenne, but it *may* be a bit spicy for others. I did reduce this by half, and did not have 2 hours to make, so I increased the temp to 275º and reduced the cooking time to 45 minutes. Perfect! Thanks for sharing this version, Chef Mom 5!
