Spicy Pretzels

Excited for my first Taste of Tuesday link-up with Ashley from Let’s Get Bananas and Jessica from Blissfully Miller!  And Becky from A Girl and Her Sparkles is linking-up about all things Christmas!

It probably doesn't surprise you that during the Christmas season, I try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup... but despite my love for all things sweet, it is nice to throw in something savory every now and then! And these spicy pretzels are the perfect compliment to a smorgasboard of sweets!  

These pretzels are amazing, and trust me, you can't eat just one...  The point is, you've got to try 'em.  So make up a batch to munch on while opening Christmas gifts!

What you need:
- 1 bag of pretzels (I find smaller-sized pretzels work best)
- 1 cup of vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon of garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- 1 packet of ranch dressing mix

How to:
1. Place the pretzels on an oven-safe tray (I used a cake pan).
2. Mix together the vegetable oil, garlic salt, cayenne pepper, and ranch dressing mix, and pour over the pretzels.
3. Bake the pretzels at 200 degrees for 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes.

John and I eat bowls of these things!!
