I have always wanted to make these. After I got my heart transplant I couldn't cook for ~4 months and this was one of the first things I made. If you noticed some of the pictures are missing, it is because my Anti-Rejection medication sometimes causes severe hand tremors. In this instructable I made Honey Mustard and Ranch, enjoy the recipe.

In a measuring cup, whisk together all the seasoning ingredients. Make sure the seasonings are evenly distributed throughout the oil and if you are using a liquid seasoning the oil needs to be evenly distributed throughout the sauce. In the pictures I am making Ranch Pretzel Pieces (Powder) and Honey Mustard Pretzel Pieces (Liquid).

Step 4: Combine The Pretzels With The Seasoning
