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.
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!
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
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees
- 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)
- In a big freezer bag pour half of the pretzels and half of the mixture and close bag and shake around the pretzels.
- 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).
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.
