Buttery Ranch Pretzels are sprinkled with Ranch seasoning and a little spicy. They taste like Dot’s pretzels, and are a delicious and addictive snack!
Remember that Homemade Ranch Seasoning I made a couple months ago? Turns out I have an idea of how you can use it today!
Of course, if you don’t want to make your own ranch seasoning from scratch, don’t let that stop you from trying this recipe. Simply buy a package of ranch seasoning next time you’re shopping, and you’ll be ready to make these delicious Buttery Ranch Pretzels!
How do you make Buttery Ranch Pretzels?
These flavorful pretzels couldn’t be easier to make. They need only a few simple ingredients:
- Butter twist pretzels (or regular pretzels or gluten free pretzels)
- Ranch seasoning (homemade or storebought – find it in the salad dressing aisle)
- Canola oil
- Tabasco or other hot sauce
Simply toss the ingredients together, then bake for a few minutes and you’re left with buttery flavored pretzels that are coated in a tangy, slightly spicy coating.
These pretzels are modeled after Dot’s pretzels, which are delicious and addictive, but can be hard to find in some parts of the country.
Serve these pretzels for the big game, when you’re having friends over to play cards, or simply when you’re just craving a salty snack.
