"I make ranch pretzels by just getting a bag of pretzel sticks, an envelope of ranch dressing and popcorn butter. Place half the bag of pretzels in a one gallon zip lock bag drizzle about 2 Tbsp popcorn butter add the remaining pretzels and drizzle another 2 Tbsp popcorn butter. Close bag and shake bag to coat all the pretzels. Open bag and put in the ranch dressing. Close bag and shake to coat all the pretzels. I make these when I have family gatherings at the house and they are always a big hit."

"I make this with mini pretzels but I don't bake it. Just put in a large bowl w/ tight fitting lid and rotate it every half hour for 2-3 hours so it distributes easily. Works great when camping and you don't have an oven. Adding a cup of peanuts is also good."
