Ranch pretzels so good you won't stop eating them

We love everything ranch around here. Some of our favorites include ranch dip and ranch style carrots. My kids will pretty much eat anything with ranch! I realized I had so many bags of pretzels one weekend so did some experimenting with recipes to come up with a fun pretzel snack. These ranch pretzels are so good they are can be called ‘crack pretzels’ because once you start you CANNOT stop!


Ranch Pretzels:

1 bag of pretzels (I had stick pretzels but get your favorite style)

1/2 stick of unsalted butter

1 pack of dry Ranch dressing mix (I added extra dill)


Heat oven to 225. In a bowl, melt the butter. Add in the ranch mix and stir. Add pretzels on top and carefully stir to coat every pretzel. Spray a cookie sheet and cover with foil if you want. (I didn’t cover mine but will next time!) Toast the pretzels in the oven for 20-25  minutes. I pulled mine out and flipped them after 10 minutes to get them cooked on both sides.

I did read other recipe that you can microwave them but the oven worked great for me!

Store in an airtight container and try not to eat them all! These would be great in lunches, after school snacks, or anytime treat. These are also great for movie nights, Yum!

Pretzels covered in ranch dry seasoning. so good you will not be able to stop eating them!

      Yes! You can do cinnamon pretzels too (I have a recipe for it as well). They are so good and a perfect sweet/salty mix.

    My ranch clumped up in the butter so it didn’t coat all the pretzels. Ranch wasn’t old so I’m not sure what the issue was.

      Hi Kris! I’m sorry this happened, so annoying! Maybe use a whisk to make sure and get the clumps out better? Thanks for trying out this recipe!
