These easy-to-coat, well-seasoned pretzels were a huge hit at my daughter's graduation party. The longer they sit, the spicier they get! —Gayle Zebo, Warren, Pennsylvania

"These are great- and addicting. Nice flavor, and you can control the "heat" bu adjusting the cayenne pepper. Be sure to bake all the way, or an extra 10 min if not all the seasoning is absorbed. At Christmas, I make these using pretzel logs and package them as gifts. Super easy."

"This is a great recipe. I did not have packaged ranch dressing on hand, so I used two tablespoons of Penzeys buttermilk ranch dressing base."
