Buffalo Ranch Pretzels

By now, you all know how much of a snacker I am – and let me tell you, I am here for these BUFFALO RANCH PRETZELS. I had leftover ranch seasoning after making my goldfish last week and decided to play around with some different ingredients we had in our pantry.

INGREDIENT DETAILS

Pretzels – I actually used the “giant” pretzels from Synder’s and broke them into smaller nuggets. You really can use any pretzels you want – I just prefer the nuggets because it seems they soak up the flavor better!

Buffalo Sauce – I used Frank’s Buffalo sauce for this recipe but I am sure you could use any buffalo sauce out there.

Olive Oil – I used olive oil this time (to be healthier) but you can also use canola oil, or really any oil that you prefer.

Ranch Dressing Seasoning – 1 (ounce) packet will be enough for this recipe!

Red Pepper Flakes – I have made this recipe with and without this ingredient, depends on how much you are trying to spice up your life!

Ingredients:

16 oz bag pretzel nuggets
3/4 cup of buffalo sauce
1/3 cup olive oil
1 ounce packet of ranch dressing seasoning
1 TBSP red pepper flakes

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees
  2. Mix together buffalo sauce, oil, ranch dressing seasoning, and red pepper flakes with a whisk (whisks allow the ranch dressing to get mixed together properly)
  3. In a big freezer bag pour half of the pretzels and half of the mixture and close bag and shake around the pretzels.
  4. Lay out the flavored pretzels on a baking sheet and mix the rest of the pretzels with the rest of the mixture – then lay those pretzels on baking sheet as well. (You make have to use two baking sheets).

Cooking Time:

Cook for 45 minutes stirring pretzels every 10 minutes!

Then, place the oven on broil and let the pretzels cook on each side for 1-2 minutes each
*you have to watch them extremely closely on broil to make sure they don’t burn!

NOTE: let the pretzels completely cool before you eat them or they’ll taste stale.

Enjoy – XO, brm.
