You’re Getting a Little Lippy!

I am the biggest sweets girl. Not to be confused with a sweet girl.

Nope, you can check with my husband on that one. His favorite comment lately is “You’re getting a little lippy” a la Will Ferrel when he accepted his Mark Twain award.  When you’re done here, go look it up. I did a little bark laugh the first time I heard it!

But while I’m getting lippy, I like to eat sweets. I’m trying to curb it. I really, really am. But it’s super hard for me to not eat all the chocolate and peanut butter in sight.

Except when these marinated pretzels are in the house. And lately, they’ve been in the house A LOT. They are so coated in ranchy spicy goodness that I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to not lick your fingers when you’re eating them. And go for the little pieces when you’re digging around in there because they have SO much flavor!!

My one friend brought these marinated ranch pretzels to a bonfire we had a couple of years ago, and now my husband asks for these as his birthday gift! Which is honestly a bit lame, because I make a batch at least once every 2 weeks, so he’s going to get them regardless. Don’t be goofy and waste a gift wish on them, just make them now because I never steer you wrong!

How to make these Marinated Pretzels

I mix all my spices and the oil up in a little bowl.

Then I pour all my pretzels out on a cookie sheet with side lips and drizzle the oil mix all over it. Mix it up REALLY well! The oil will want to settle all over the bottom of the pan but just keep mixing it up until the marinated pretzels look really well coated!

I’ve heard others say they eat them just like this, but not us. We bake them and let that oily spicy goodness seep down in and become one with your pretzels.

I make these with small pretzel knots in a large, covered bowl or zip lock bag. Put all ingredients in and shake periodically over 24 hours. Its a great snack for camping or the beach.
