When it comes to snack foods and go-to finger foods for your game day tailgates, pretzels rise to the top of the list. They are crunchy and salty and taste great with your alcohol of choice to celebrate your win or drown the sorrow of your loss. When you grab a handful of these crisp, baked bites, your mouth knows just what to expect. But if you want to transform your pretzels into a flavor-packed food with a colossal crunch, you are going to want to combine them with your favorite ranch seasoning.

Ranch seasoning hits all the right sweet and savory notes for your tongue. Buttermilk, salt, sugar, garlic, onion, mustard, parsley, dill, chives, and tarragon help to form that delicious taste that has become synonymous with the beloved dressing. Simply mix up the contents of your ranch seasoning package or your homemade ranch powder with some oil, place your pretzels on a sheet pan, sprinkle the combo over them, and bake.

Ranch and pretzels are a lovely combo, but what you are going to love about this trick even more is that you can adapt it to some of your other favorite snacks, including saltines or the iconic Ritz cracker. Baking these crunchy favorites with the blended ranch seasoning and oil adds both depth of taste and a crispiness that will be gobbled up in minutes.

Additionally, you can try this hack with your favorite roasted nuts that could benefit from a little herby element and buttermilk tang. Of course, if you like to make your own buttermilk seasoning, you can control the various amounts needed to ensure your favorite parts of this seasoning shine through. Your DIY ranch seasoning will last for about two months in the refrigerator so you can have it ready to go whenever you need it.
