Lemon Pepper Ranch Game Day Pretzels

llemon-pepper-ranch-game-day-pretzelsTrust me when I tell you that these pretzels are addicting!  I’ve had this recipe for 20 years and I usually bring it out at Christmas to give as gifts.  They are a welcomed change to all of the Christmas sweets going around.  The lemon pepper and dill are the perfect compliment to the Ranch dressing mix.I would have to say that I rarely reach for plain pretzels as a snack, but I know I would seek out these Lemon Pepper Ranch Pretzels at any party. These are also a nice snack for game or movie night as an alternative to popcorn.  Try them as a salad topping.  Or anytime you just want a delicious snack!  You will be asked for this recipe over and over.

I have made them both with the small pretzels and the large ones.  If you use the large ones, I suggest breaking them up so that the deliciousness can soak into the broken sides of the pretzel.  The smaller pretzels look really nice in a treat bag for gift-giving.  Or combine them for interest.
