Seasoned Pretzels

Around this time of year I start to crave snack mixes like the ever-popular and ever-traditional Chex Mix and the ranch oyster crackers, seasoned pretzels, etc. I think it's both the colder weather and the holidays that make it seem 'right' for this kind of snack.

I bet most of my readers have had seasoned pretzels and a good portion of those people don't know how to make them or have just never 'thought about it'. But once you see how easy and quick it is you'll see that even an elementary school child can make them.


Seasoned Pretzels (onion flavored)

1 1/4 c butter or margarine
1 pkg dry onion soup mix
1 (16-ounce) bag pretzel rods, broken into 1 inch pieces or small original pretzels

In microwaveable bowl, melt the butter. Stir in soup mix. Return to the microwave for about 30 more seconds and stir until well mixed. Add pretzels; toss to coat. Spread pretzel mixture in a baking pan. Bake at 250' for 1-1/2 hours, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool. Store in an airtight container.Print Friendly and PDF
