Seasoned Hard Pretzels

"This recipe is adapted from a submission by Sharon Roth in the Fairplay Wilderness Camp School cookbook in Westminster, SC. My son Anthony attended the camp from 2000-2002. These are great taken on camping and fishing trips as they keep well once cooled."

    These were DELICIOUS with your mustard dipping sauce!!! Perfect for watching football. Everyone loved the flavors. I didn't deviate at all from the recipe. This will be a definite repeat for parties.

    addictive - I used homemade ranch seasonings (from recipezaar). I also used about 1/2 cup oil - and still think it was too much (and I had just over a pound of pretzels). Next time, I will use less oil, and combine it with some mustard for an extra kick. Also, was a bit salty, so next time I'll either use salt-free pretzels or salt-free ranch seasoning.

    Great superbowl snack.

    Tasty snack! I just thought there was too much spice mix making the taste pretty strong. I liked the idea of using pretzel nubs but could only find pre-seasoned ones. So, I used pretzel rods instead & broke them up into bite-sized pieces. I served as a party nibbler & they were quite well received.

    These are awesome! I bought a tall jar of Utz whole grain pretzel sticks that were kinda plain and dry - this recipe spiced them right up! The pretzels just suck up all the sauce while they're in the oven so they don't look shiny or greasy at all. DH has commandeered the pretzel container and can't stop eating. This is definitely a keeper!
