I love this recipe! I make a huge batch for Christmas gifts- but I do use the larger pretzel logs or rods. Sometimes I add oyster crackers for a mix of texture.

Used pretzel nuggets and added more cayenne along with onion powder and black pepper because we like spicy. Easy and delicious!

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.
