A few Christmas's ago, our friend Jessie gave us an AWESOME assortment of tasty-deliciousness. On of the things was Spicy Pretzels. I am 99% sure that my husband and I inhaled the entire bag before we even left the house. (I still need that popcorn recipe!)
I have never had these, or heard of these anywhere else outside of Elk County, PA. If I have had them it was by someone from Elk County, or has family from Elk County. Maybe I don't get out much. I wanted to make a big ol' batch for Christmas, so ta-da! They were so flipping good that I asked Ms. Jessie if I could share the recipe.
You will all want to hug her and squeeze her, but that would be awkward. If you want to send her internet millions I can handle that transaction for you.
Enter the world of deliciousness!
1 cup Canola Oil (super healthy right?)
1 tbsp Cayenne Peper
1/2 tbsp Dill Weed
1 tsp Cajun Seasoning (or blacken steak magic of equivalent)
1 Hidden Valley Ranch Packet
1 lb Pretzels (sourdough, not the little ones, and not the fat ones you lose teeth over)
|You may need to take one for the team and eat some to get EXACTLY a pound. |
Either that or I just wanted to eat pretzels.
|15 minutes in and flipped.|
If you make these feel free to send me the fan mail for Jesse. I'll make sure she gets it!
