I used a homemade dry ranch seasoning instead of packaged. I made no other changes. My pretzels were done baking at about an hour and a half. I also stirred them every fifteen minutes. These are terribly addictive. Everyone loved them especially my oldest boy. This recipe's a keeper. Read More

OK, I made one change, I cut the oil in half to get the calories and fat down, and they still tasted terrific. These are perfect for game day snacks. The spices are so tasty on these pretzel nuggets, and they have just the right amount of kick. Read More

These came out a little strong for me but my kids loved them! I did omit the dill weed simply for preference. Read More

I've always made the old school ranch pretzels so I had a feeling these would be right up my alley! I really liked the use of the pretzel nugget for eating ease. I baked for about an hour and fifteen minutes and that was plenty of time. I enjoyed these (and really like the bit of lingering heat) but do feel as thought the ranch and cajun compete a bit. I think I'd like them w/out the ranch packet (with some onion/garlic power) a bit more. I too only used a touch more than a half cup of Mazola (R) corn oil. THANKS for the recipe! Read More

These are absolutely addictive! I used a big bag (19.2 oz) of pretzel bites to 1/2 cup oil and the seasonings called for. I tested one as they were cooking hot out of the oven and then had to stop myself from going back to snag more! It is a good thing I made a double batch or there might not be enough left to take to the gathering these were planned for. Read More

These are very good! I also reduced the oil to 1/2 C. They turned out perfectly and were very well received by my guests. Read More

As with the other reviews... this is addicting! Orhers mentioned less oil & same taste. I assume they would bake faster too as the coating dried up as the time went on. Read More
