5 Minute Roasted Seasoned Pretzels

I told ya’ll about the Midwest Living Culinary & Craft School at Silver Dollar City, and I told ya’ll that I would be sharing some recipes that were inspired from this class.

Well, let me tell you, this is one of my all time favorite recipes ever. I am not sure it is my favorite because it is so yummy or because it is so easy.

Seriously – this couldn’t be easier to make, and it turns ordinary plain dry pretzels into something special in 5 minutes or less and you don’t have to turn on the oven.

That makes these the perfect summer treat.

Ok – maybe it is because we are adding fat and calories to the pretzels, but they are so good!

These pretzels are perfect for taking to the pool or any other summer activity you have planned. Take these along to any 4th of July party, or to the park to watch the fireworks.

I do want to say that if you want the original recipe, you will need to hightail it to Silver Dollar City in the next few weeks.

These two recipes were inspired by Debbie Dance Uhrig’s brilliance.

The first one is:

Butter Pecan Cinnamon Pretzels

What you need:

1 pound bag Mini Pretzel Twists

1 – 1 ½ cups pecan halves (you decide when you have enough)

2/3 cup butter

4 tsp Cinnamon

½ cup Sugar

Directions:

  • In a large bowl melt butter completely in the microwave – approx. 90 seconds
  • Stir cinnamon and sugar into the melted butter
  • Add pretzels and pecans and toss to coat completely.
  • Microwave for 1 minute.
  • Toss to coat.
  • Microwave for 1 minute.
  • Toss to coat.
  • Microwave 1 minute.
  • Toss to coat.

Microwave a total of 3 minutes stirring after every minute.

  •  Dump pretzels on a large piece of foil/parchment paper/cookie sheet or paper towels to dry. (Be sure to drizzle any remaining deliciousness over the pretzels)
  • Allow to dry for a couple of hours.

Try to keep everyone from eating them all before you store in an airtight container.

Ranch Pretzels

2/3 cup canola oil

I repeat: Try to keep everyone from eating them all before you store in an airtight container.

Enjoy these delicious tasty treats!
