Crunchy Garlic Parmesan Pretzels are a flavorful snack the whole family will love. They are easy to make any time the craving hits!
Of all the spices and seasonings out there, the garlic parmesan combination is probably my family’s favorite. It goes well on everything from chicken and pasta to grilled cheese and biscuits. And now we have these snackable, crave-worthy garlic parmesan pretels!
Spread two bags of butter-flavored pretzels out on a large rimmed baking sheet.
What kind of pretzel should I use?
You can use whatever kind of pretzels you want or have on hand for this garlic parmesan pretzels recipe. Just keep the ounces of pretzels to around the same amount as called for in the recipe.
I chose butter-flavored pretzels spindles this time because I love the extra butter flavor you get with them. This recipe would also be delicious with pretzels twists, snaps which look like crosshatch squares, or pretzel sticks.
If you are making these garlic parmesan pretzels for a holiday or special occasion, look for seasonal pretzels in holiday shapes, circles, or footballs.
Put melted butter and canola oil in a small bowl and add the garlic powder, onion powder, and parsley flakes.
What other seasonings can I add to these garlic parmesan pretzels?
There are so many spices that can be added to these garlic parmesan pretzels so go with what you prefer. Try adding a little cajun seasoning, black pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, or dill weed. You can add them in addition to the spices already in the recipe or as a substitution.
Whisk together the butter, oil, and seasonings.
Can I just sprinkle the seasoning on instead?
The reason we mix the seasonings into the butter and oil is so that they are dispersed better over all of the pretzels. That being said, yes you can coat the pretzels with butter and oil and then sprinkle them with the seasonings if you prefer.
Pour the butter mixture over the pretzels in the pan.
Use a silicone spatula to stir the pretzels while scooping up any of buttery seasoning mixture from the pan. Stir until the pretzels are coated and the buttery seasoning is no longer pooling on the pan.
Sprinkle about half of the grated parmesan cheese over the pretzels and stir to coat.
Then, sprinkle on the second half of the parmesan and stir again.
Bake the garlic parmesan pretzels at 220˚F for 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes. Or if you prefer to leave the oven off, you can stir the pretzels every 15 minutes for three hours, or until the oil is absorbed.
How should I store garlic parmesan pretzels?
Store the garlic parmesan pretzels in an airtight container in the pantry. You can put all of the pretzels in a large ziptop bag or container with a lid. We’ve also found that dividing the spicy pretzels into snack-size servings in separate baggies makes it super easy to grab a snack and go.
