Major Ric's Pretzel Recipe


  • 1 pound of mini twist pretzels
  • 4 ounces of Orville Redenbacher popcorn oil (can substitute with olive oil)
  • 1/2 a package of Uncle Dan’s® Classic Ranch Seasoning and Salad Dressing
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder (varied according to your taste)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of dill weed (varied according to your taste)


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the Uncle Dan’s® Classic Ranch Seasoning, garlic powder, and dill weed. Add the popcorn oil and mix thoroughly with a whisk or electric mixer.
  2. Spread the pretzels out in a large 10” by 16” roasting pan.
  3. Pour the marinade evenly over all of the pretzels, using a tablespoon to ladle the marinade to ensure even coverage.
  4. Stir the pretzels with a spatula every 10-15 minutes for the next hour and a half, or until they fully absorb all the marinade. The pretzels will not be soggy.

Love this! Video does not use the garlic powder and the dill weed as indicated in recipe…

I have made this many times, my family loves them. I recently tried it with the Chipotle Ranch and we all like it even better. You need to try it, you will love it!

We can’t get the popcorn oil in Canada unfortunately, but I substitute coconut oil and increase the spices a bit to make up for the missing flavour. Fantastic! My family loves this snack!
