Aunt Rita Ankerstein's Seasoned Pretzels

  • 2 bags of small twist pretzels (about 16 oz each)
  • 1 bottle of popcorn oil (12 oz Orville Redenbacher Popping Oil)
  • 1 packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing and Seasoning Mix
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper

In a small bowl, mix together ranch dressing packet, garlic powder and lemon pepper. In a large bowl, add two bags of pretzels, the bottle of popcorn oil and the spice mixture. Blend well and stir every 15 minutes for about one hour. The pretzels will absorb much of the oil and the spices will coat the outside. Place pretzels on paper towel to drain excess liquid, place in zip-lock bag and let sit for 6-8 hours.

Recipe Author's Warning: You may become addicted to these pretzels. Do not eat before a date or job interview.

Cook's Notes: The pretzels never made it to the "zip-lock and let sit for 6-8 hours stage". Trust me.
