Let's Make Garlic Parmesan Pretzels

Hey guys -- I found a recipe over at Certified Pastry Aficionado that I just must share with you - Garlic Parmesan Pretzels!  I saw them on Sharon's blog last week and immediately pinned it.  We were celebrating January birthdays at work today so it was the perfect opportunity to give them a try.  They were a huge hit and so easy to make that they will definitely be a new go-to snack at our house.

Here's What You Need

1 pound pretzel bites (I used Snyder's Sourdough Nibblers)
1/2 cup canola oil (not olive oil)
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons dried dill
2 teaspoons garlic powder

Here's What You Do

Preheat your oven to 225 degree Fahrenheit.

Dump everything in a gallon size Ziploc bag and seal shut.  Toss around until all the pretzels are well coated.  If you're cooking with a small child, this could be a great job for them!

When pretzels are well coated, place them on a baking sheet.  Make sure your baking sheet is large enough that you have a single layer of pretzels.

Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.  Take them out of the oven, give them a little stir and place back in the over for another 15 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.  At Sharon's recommendation, I sprinkled a little more Parmesan cheese over the top.  Oh so good!

Thanks Sharon at Certified Pastry Aficionado for this wonderful snack idea.  I can't wait to try some of her other recipes.  So many look so good!

  1. I'll have to try this for one our work luncheons. We have our January birthdays lunch this Thursday but we're ordering in pizza so maybe next month. They look yummy.

  2. That's a great game day snack,I bet my husband will eat those all up. I'll give these a try for sure, thanks for sharing.

  3. What a fun and easy snack! They sound delicious! I will have to try them!

  4. Oh, my goodness--these look so good! And easy to make -- my favorite kind of recipe :) Thanks for sharing!

  5. One of our girls night ladies makes these but she uses the thins and popcorn oil. I may need to try it with the thicker pretzels...but who am I kidding, I just love any type of pretzels!

  6. Yummy! Perfect for the big game dipped in yummy dips.

  7. Mmm that sounds so good, and the recipe looks SO easy! I love pretzels, especially when garlic and parmesan are involved.

  8. This is so my kind of snack! I love pretezels and basically anything with garlic!

  9. YES! So much better to make it on your own at home than buy the store-bought kind that's already seasoned! They throw in so many additional ingredients and preservatives that you don't need!

  10. Oh my goodness is this real life?! lol These look amazing!

  11. You know, I've bought a few of those bags of flavored pretzel pieces over the years, but this looks like a much tastier way to get great flavor on my pretzels. Thanks so much for sharing at the #happynowlinkup!

  12. These look fantastic! I mean really fantastic. Why have I never made some of them before? Thanks for sharing your recipe! #happynowlinkup

  13. Hi Penny, these do look like a tasty nibble. We don't get pretzel bits here, but I'm sure I could manage to break a few into bite sized pieces.
