    Seasoned Pretzels

    Baked hard pretzels seasoned with lemon pepper, dill, and garlic powder. You will not be able to stop snacking on these!

    1 bag hard pretzels (anywhere from a 12 - 16 oz bag is fine)
    3/4 cup oil (canola, vegetable, olive)

    • 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons lemon pepper

    • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

    • 2 teaspoons dried dill weed

    • optional other spices - see notes
    1. Preheat oven to 200F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.

    2. Break the pretzels into pieces. Place them in a large zipped-top bag. Add the oil and the spices. Shake it all together very well. Sometimes I shake it, let it sit for a minute, and shake it again. You want every piece coated very well. If you find there aren't enough spices coating the pretzels, add more spices to your tastes. Sometimes I add up to 2 full Tbsp of the lemon pepper.

    3. Spread the pretzels onto the prepared baking sheet. If they don't all fit in a single layer, use two sheets. Bake for 50 minutes, making sure to stir the pretzels around two or three times during baking. Remove front he oven and allow to cool.

    4. Pretzels stay fresh covered tightly at room temperature for 3 weeks. They won't last that long!
    Recipe Notes:
    *Option is to add 1 packet of Hidden Valley dry ranch seasoning. If you choose to do this, reduce the spices to as follows: 1 teaspoon lemon pepper, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon dill weed.

    *You can add up to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper for a little heat. Add however much you can stand!

    Caramel Puffs

    1 bag plain corn puffs (Mike Sells or Seyferts brand works)

    2 sticks butter

    1 cup brown sugar

    ½ cup light corn syrup

    1 tsp baking soda

    Bring to a boil the butter, sugar and corn syrup. Add the baking soda. Boil constantly, stirring, for 2 minutes.

    Take a large roasting pan, spray it with cooking spray. Put puffs in pan, pour mixture over it, stir up so everything is coated. Bake for 45 minutes at 250 degrees. Stir every 10 minutes. Lay out on wax paper to cool. Will come out clumpy, can break up at some point during cooling process.

    If you don’t have a roasting pan get a couple big disposable foil pans to use instead.

    These do not keep well - eat within a day or two at most.
