Well folks, we're less than one month away from the Superbowl.  Yes, we're only a few weeks away from my absolute favorite sporting event.  And you know, I actually love to watch the game, not just the commercials. Though I must admit I do enjoy the commercials, too.

Since my team, the Carolina Panthers, isn't going to make it to the big game this year, I'm going to have to figure out who I'll be routing for.  But one thing I'm already sure of is we'll have lots of great game-day food to snack on!  Like these addictively delicious spicy pretzels.

Because no matter who's playing or who you route for, Cajun Pretzels are the perfect game-day snack.

Seasoned with a super yummy combination of Old Bay seasoning, Ranch seasoning, and cayenne pepper, these tiny pretzels pack a big flavor punch!  With a little kick, too ... they're spicy, but not too spicy.  Juuuuuust right to be addictively delicious, in my book.

Pair a handful with an ice cold beer, and you've got the perfect game-day savory treat to enjoy.  

Cajun Pretzels for Game Day Snacking image

Cajun Pretzels
  1. Place pretzels in a large mixing bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together dry Ranch dip mix, Old Bay seasoning, cayenne pepper, and canola oil. Pour oil mixture over pretzels and toss gently to coat.
  2. Spread pretzels on a baking sheet. Bake at 250 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Cool.
  3. Store in an airtight container.

    1. We love Old Bay, too, Maria. And it's just fabulous on these pretzels! Thank you so much for stopping by!

  2. These sound absolutely wonderful!
    The only "problem" is that I'd probably won't be able to stop eating them

  3. LOL! I am right behind you at all the parties today and you are making me seriously hungry for a snack. These all look great but I am partial to those pretzels. I hope you'll come link them at the Super Bowl Party going on on my Mom's site right now:

  9. I've got a batch in the oven right now trying out the recipe. The one I sampled just seasoned before I put in the oven was yummy so I think this will be a keeper! My bag of mini twists was just 16 oz so I added a few from another bag and there was still enough to coat it as well as divide it up on two large half sheets. I've already decided I'm making up the rest since we have a potluck to go to. This way some can stay home with us!! THX Tracey for this and the other wonderful looking recipes you have shared.

  10. On my way to Costco I know I'm grabbing some pretzels while I'm there! What plugin are you using for your related posts? It's lovely! Pinned and tweeted! Thanks for coming by the Friday Frenzy!

  11. Pretzels are my weakness! Thanks for linking up at Friday Frenzy Link Party! PINNED!

  13. Only this year did I learn of Old Bay... how did that happen. I love mini pretzels and am excited to try this recipe

  14. Yum, Tracey!! I'm featuring these on my Mini Roundup from our #HomeMattersParty! Thanks for participating last week, hope to see you there again tomorrow!
