Servings 1 pound


  • 1/2 lb. salted butter (8 tablespoons)
  • 1 oz. packet Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning mix
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 16 oz. mini twist pretzels


Preheat oven to 225 degrees.

  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Remove the butter from heat and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes, *see note. Stir Ranch powder, Worcestershire sauce, ground mustard, and garlic powder into the butter until the powder has dissolved and no lumps remain.
  • Dump the 1 pound bag of mini pretzels into a large bowl, then add the butter/seasoning mixture and gently toss to coat.
  • Spread pretzels evenly onto a large cookie sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes-one hour, stirring every 15 minutes to get a nice, even bake. Once the butter pretzels have dried and are crisp, remove them from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Store the pretzels in an airtight container and enjoy! Notes and photos below.

Equipment needed for these Amish butter Ranch Pretzels:

  • Mixing bowl A large mixing bowl is needed to combine the pretzels with the butter and ranch mixture. I like to use my stainless steel bowls because they are durable and dish washer friendly!
  • Measuring spoons Measuring spoons are useful for measuring out the Worcestershire sauce, ground mustard and garlic powder.
  • Spatula I like to use a spatula for stirring the pretzels while they are baking. Stirring the pretzels mid-bake gives them a more even bake.
  • Saucepan A medium sized saucepan is needed for melting the butter and mixing in the seasonings before pouring the seasoned butter mixture over the pretzels.
  • Storage Container A large storage container that is also airtight is nice to have for storing these Amish seasoned pretzels in.

These pretzels are delicious with Cup Cheese ( Amish cheese spread.) Try these pretzels with seafood cheeseball for a delicious snack platter over the holidays or anytime you are in the need of a finger licking good party food snack.

Can I microwave the butter before mixing in the Ranch powder and other seasonings?

While scrolling the internet I noticed some concerns on the Ranch powder clumping in hot butter. I do not recommend microwaving the butter (which can make the butter too hot for adding Ranch powder to it) and recommend heating it with a more even heat from the sauce pan, and then allowing the butter to cool slightly (until lukewarm or so) before adding the seasonings.

Can the Worcestershire sauce and Ranch seasoning mix be adjusted for less salty pretzels?

These pretzels are on the saltier side especially right out of the oven. If you prefer you can add less Worcestershire sauce and less Ranch powder for milder tasting pretzels. The brand of pretzels can also make a huge difference, as some pretzels are saltier than others. I prefer to use Tom Sturgis’ little ones pretzels.

Storage for these Amish Butter Ranch Seasoned Pretzels:

These seasoned pretzels are a great holiday side. These keep well at room temperature in an air tight container and can handle the stress of traveling. I personally like to make these pretzels a few days ahead of time to have on hand for company over the holidays or for family reunions.
