These ranch pretzels are quick and so simple to make. They’re the perfect party, movie night, or after school snack for your hungry kiddos. Only five ingredients and you’ve got the most addicting, delicious snack that everyone will love.
If you’ve never tasted ranch pretzels then you are in for a treat today. My sweet friend Pat (aka Teacher Pat) made and shared these pretzels with me years ago. I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to share the recipe with you.
These ranch pretzels are seriously a snack lovers dream. They are incredibly simple to make and highly addicting. I can guarantee you that you won’t be able to stop at just a few. You simply toss them into a bowl and watch as they are devoured right before your eyes.
This recipe is great because it’s super adaptable. If you want a stronger ranch flavor, then use more of the ranch seasoning. If you love dill, by all means add two tablespoons (or even more) instead of one. I love to use the mini twist pretzels, but you can use different styles of pretzels as well.
Wrap some of these babies up in a cellophane bag with some ribbon and you have a fantastic neighbor gift/treat for the holidays. . . you’re welcome!
Here is what you’ll need:
- Popcorn oil: I love the buttery under tone from using popcorn oil and highly recommend using it (I use Orville Redenbacher)s. But you could also use canola or vegetable oil instead.
- Dry ranch seasoning mix: I use Hidden Valley Ranch brand, but you can certainly make your own if you are one of those over achievers (lol).
- Garlic powder: feel free to use less if you don’t love a strong garlic flavor or more if you want an even stronger garlic flavor.
- Dried dill: I love dill so I use the 2 tablespoons for this recipe, but you can use less if you don’t want a strong dill flavor.
- Pretzels: You can select any type of pretzel you want, but I love using the mini pretzels.
This is how you make them. . . easy peasy!
- In a small bowl, whisk together the popcorn oil, ranch seasoning, garlic powder and dill.
- In the large bowl add the pretzels and then pour the oil mixture over the top. Toss the pretzels until all pretzels are fully coated. Repeat this about every 20 minutes for the next few hours so the pretzels can soak up all the oil.
- At this point you can spread them out onto a cookie sheet to dry completely before storing them in an airtight container or Ziploc bag. Or leave them in the bowl and let everyone dig in.
We love these pretzels and I’m guessing you will too.Print
