    These keep really well. Actually I think they get better the longer they sit. I was in the Navy and a buddy’s grandma would make these and send them out in care packages to us. She would send an entire batch and they wouldn’t last a whole day! Every time I send out a package to a deployed friend I include these and they are always a huge hit. If you’re making these for a party I recommend making them a day ahead, this helps intensify the flavor. Also, I never bake them. I just stir the bowl every 15 minutes for a couple of hours. Even easier.

    Has anyone ever tried to swap the Ranch packet with maybe an onion soup packet or maybe a salsa spice packet? And if swap that take out the dill but it might be really good…
