Copycat Dot’s Pretzels

Warning: These pretzels are just so addicting. These will not help with the “Quarantine 15” we’re adding to our waist lines, but they’re better than the Easter candy you’ve been eating for breakfast, lunch, dinner, second dinner, bedtime snack…

I’m such a huge Dot’s Pretzels fan. If you haven’t tried them before, get ready for a high price tag ($6 for a lb. of pretzels! 😳). But if you know, you know. They’re better than pretzels. They’re buttery, crunchy, and a little party of ranch seasoning in your mouth. A huge hit in the Midwest and for such a good reason. I mean, if I’m going to spend $6 for a bag of pretzels, they’re delicious. They’re addicting. They’re otherworldly. (You get it yet? These are NOT like regular pretzels!)

Get ready for a dupe recipe that will save you some major money and is indistinguishable from the delicious Dot’s Pretzels that we know, love, and demolish in one sitting. 🙂


1 bag of pretzel twists (twists work the best!)

1/2 c salted butter

1 packet dry ranch mix

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 Tablespoon dill weed

1 teaspoon lemon pepper


Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Melt butter and whisk in all seasonings until combined.

Add pretzels to large Ziploc bag. Pour butter and spice mixture over the top. Seal bag and shake until pretzels are thoroughly covered.

Spread evenly on baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes, flipping halfway.
