If you’re looking for a delicious snack that’s both impressive and easy to make, you need to make these Easy Ranch Pretzels!
Last weekend I had a mental breakdown.
Ok, that's really dramatic. I had a semi-mental breakdown.
Mollie, a friend of mine, is getting married next weekend and our bible study decided to throw her a little surprise shower.
This is a picture of our group - Mollie is the cute one in the top right hand corner!
We planned to surprise her with a table full of goodies and a little gift from all of us! I set out to bake some yummy Butterfinger cookies for her on Sunday afternoon since the party was on Monday night. I started making the dough and found that the consistency was a little off. I decided that it wasn't a big deal so I scooped a few out and put them in the oven. They didn't really bake right either - they never spread out like they were supposed to. "I'm sure they're fine," I thought.
No, they were not fine.
I have no idea what happened but they did not taste like Butterfingers. They didn't really taste like much of anything.
So this is where they ended up...
Bright side - the dogs really enjoyed them!
To make a long story short, I tried making another batch of cookies.
Those didn't turn out either. Total failure.
Well, I ended up scrapping the cookie idea. Obviously, I was just not meant to bake cookies for Mollie. So, I turned to my most faithful recipe - Ranch Pretzels. I think this is the very first recipe I ever mastered (because it's so easy).
Moral of my story - when in doubt, always make Ranch Pretzels. They're easy and you won't have to feed them to your dogs. People really like them and they have no idea that you just threw a few ingredients in a big bag and then baked them.
9-oz. bag pretzels
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1-oz. packet Hidden Valley Ranch Dip
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
2. Place the pretzels in a gallon-size ziploc bag. Add the oil, seal the bag and toss to coat. Add the dry ingredients to the bag, seal and toss again until all of the pretzels are coated.
3. Spread the pretzels out on a large baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the oil has absorbed into the pretzels. Cool and store in an airtight container.
Hope you enjoy!
