Preheat your oven to 250° Fahrenheit. Cover your baking sheet with parchment paper or foil (this will make for easier clean up).
In a small bowl or glass measuring cup, melt your butter and add your oil and seasonings. Whisk/mix it together.NOTE: This recipe make super salty and savory pretzels. If you are worried about the level of saltiness, start out adding only 1 ranch packet to the butter/oil, and half of the seasoned salt and onion powder and taste it. Then add more from there to your liking.
Place your pretzels in a zip top bag and pour your butter ranch mix over the pretzels. Seal the bag and shake the bag/toss the pretzels making sure all of the pretzels get covered. Check the corners of the zip top bag and make sure you don't have the buttery seasoning at the bottom of the bag.
After the pretzels are covered in the butter ranch seasoning, pour the pretzels on to the parchment paper covered pan. Spread them out as evenly as you can. They will not be in a single layer and that is ok, you will give them a stir/mix half way through baking.
Place the pan in your oven and let them bake for 8 minutes. After 8 minutes, take them out of the oven and using spatula, stir/mix the pretzels. Bake for another 8-10 minutes.
Take the pretzels out of the oven and let them cool. Then pour them in a large bowl and enjoy!Store any leftovers in a zip top bag!
