BBQ Ranch Pretzels

I’m team salty snack, so these BBQ Ranch Pretzels are right up my alley! There’s a local Minnesota deli that sells packaged seasoned pretzels and they are so so good! They sell them to different breweries around town so you can find them often. Such a great bar snack!

With just a few simple ingredients you can make homemade seasoned pretzels! Some oil, a ranch packet, garlic and dill, and some chili powder and smoked paprika to bring in the BBQ vibes. Spices I always have in my pantry.

The spice mixture just gets whisked with the oil, and poured over the pretzels. I let the pretzels marinade in the seasonings for about 20 minutes before baking to really let the flavors soak in, they do not get soggy!

If you like a little spicy kick, definitely add some cayenne pepper or chipotle chili pepper. Either would add a nice little kick to the back of your throat if you like spicy! These pretzels get baked, then cooled, and boom, a tasty flavorful snack! A great salty snack for happy hours or game days. They also package up nicely for road trips or goodie bags!

What better way to enjoy a little happy hour. These BBQ Ranch Pretzels pair perfectly with your favorite beverage of choice!
