What Pretzels Are Best To Use In Recipe
Can I Make These Pretzels Ahead of Time
Feel free to make these pretzels ahead of time if you would like. Since you let them sit for 6 hours, I always recommend making them a day in advance.
Store properly, toss, and then enjoy.
Manage The Spice Of The Pretzels
If you don’t want the pretzels to be as spicy, simply use less cayenne. Instead, do 1/2 teaspoon. This will help lessen the heat flavor. You could even split the mix in half if you want to do part mild others hot.
- 16 oz (1 lb) bag twist pretzels
- 2 tsp lemon pepper
- 2 tsp garlic salt
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- Combine all spices and oil in a gallon Ziploc bag. Zip it up and gently knead the bag to combine the spices and oil.
- Open the bag, add the pretzels, and shake to combine.
- Leave them in the bag for about 6 hours or until the pretzels have fully absorbed the oil and spices.
Time-Saving Hack: If you don't want to wait the 6 hours for the oil to be absorbed, you may instead bake the pretzel mixture on a cookie sheet at 200 degrees for an hour, or until all of the oil and spices are absorbed.
