If you love ranch seasoning, these Ranch Pretzels are a fun and unique treat for a party or just some movie night snacking or a family road trip.
Ranch Seasoned Pretzels Recipe
My daughter Ella is not a dessert person.
I’ve made three-layer mermaid cakes before and she’s just shrugged and not been interested in a single slice.
But these ranch pretzels? She’s all about them!
Savory, salty and zesty, these ranch seasoned pretzels are seriously soooo good. I’m not even a huge ranch fan and I couldn’t stop sneaking extra pretzels while taking these pictures.
You could even make our soft pretzel recipe using this ranch seasoning, if you prefer food court-style soft pretzels to these.
You can make these ranch pretzels with store-bought ranch seasoning packets, but at $2 a packet and containing questionable ingredients like maltodextrin (some serious health risks), monosodium glutamine (MSG), calcium stearate (more health risks), I prefer to take the extra two minutes of effort to pull out my spices and make my ranch seasoning from scratch.
Plus, when making your own seasoning, you can customize the flavors exactly to your liking. More dill? More garlic? Go for it!
(You can find my from-scratch ranch seasoning recipe here, including how to make it into a ranch salad dressing and lots of ideas for how to use it.)
You can make these ranch pretzels gluten-free by purchasing gluten-free pretzels, and dairy-free by using coconut oil instead of butter.
They keep for up to a week, but can soften after that. I would personally try to make them within 48 hours of planning to enjoy.
These would make a delicious homemade gift – for Father’s Day, Christmas, Teacher Appreciation Gifts, etc. Just pack them up in a mason jar or cute baggies and you’re done. (Maybe also include the recipe so they can make more themselves after they devour them.)
They’re easy enough that the kids can make them – you just may want to help with the oven step which helps set the seasoning so it doesn’t just fall off of the pretzels.

Ranch Pretzel Ingredients
- Pretzels – you can use any kind of pretzel you like – pretzel twists, pretzel sticks, even pretzel nuggets. I prefer twists because they are easier to get more ranch seasoning evenly coated on each pretzel
- Butter or coconut oil, melted – I like the flavor of the butter on these, but coconut oil tastes great, too, if you’d like to skip butter
- Dried parsley
- Dried chives
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder or dehydrated onion – I prefer dehydrated onion for flavor
- Dill weed
- Black pepper
- Salt, optional – you may not need salt depending on how salty your pretzels are. Taste and judge for yourself.

Tip: low salt pretzels are a great option if you want to control the flavor a bit more.
