Marinated Pretzels

Russell brought some of these home from work a few years ago, and we have now made at least one batch every year around the Holidays.  They are addictive and so good.

I stray from the recipe a bit – I know you are shocked.  Don’t be.  I find recipes (like most rules) are made to be broken!

Instead of Cheeze Its, I often put in Chex Cereal – cause why not?  I like the Wheat Chex this best.  I used those and Crispix cereal this time around.  No idea why I did Crispix?

Be generous when breaking them up, in fact this time around, we could have done better.  The smaller pieces are easier to eat!  Some years, I have used just regular old pretzels, not hard ones, and it is still yummy.

Add the cereal or whatever you want:

2 cups of oil is A LOT.  This year the pretzels didn’t soak it all up, Next year I will do 1.5 cups of oil  The pretzels are supposed to soak it all up.  Yeah, I know, very healthy!  Hey, I use Canola Oil if that helps at all?  Mix the oil and the seasonings really well, and pour over the pretzels and toss.   Then Bake at 200 for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring well every 15 minutes.

Give these a try the next time you need to bring a snack or appetizer, you won’t be sorry.  These would be great for serving during a football game!!  I may make some for all of the playoff games!  I love Playoff Football – Let’s go Redskins!
