Spicy Crackers Recipe

Talk about ADDICTING. If you want to make a party snack, for an upcoming shindig you’re hosting, or going to… look NO further.

More Snack Ideas You’ll Love:

I’ve decided to call these little gems, “Party Crackers,” because even if I’m not serving them at a party, or sitting on the couch & eating them, well… it’s a party in my mouth. 😉  

They can also be referred to as Spicy Ranch Seasoned Crackers, which may tell you a little more about what they taste like!

Unfortunately, I could use big, fancy words, to try and make you want to make these… but really, until you’ve had them… you will have NO idea how much you’ve been missing out.

Sadly, last year was the first year I had tried them. My aunt made them and brought them to a family function, and I literally found myself thinking about them throughout the year, hoping she’d make them again, and bring them to the event this year.

Then I began to think…

“Why in the heck don’t I just get the recipe from her, and make them myself?”

So I texted her, and she was so kind to send me the recipe an hour later. I felt like such a fool for waiting almost a year to ask her.

I made them a day later, ate them, made them again, ate them, and made them again.
The last time I made them, I figured that I better share the love, and share with friends.

Food Gift Wrapping Idea

YUM!!! Spicy Ranch Seasoned Crackers Recipe: Party Crackers

I put them in a bowl, tied a pretty ribbon around them, inserted a berry sprig, and finished it off with a gift tag, and they were set and ready to go!

(I’ve also included a second container of my aunt’s infamous Cornflake Cookies. Talk about a sweet treat that’s DELISH! Get the recipe I shared over on “I Heart Naptime” HERE!)

Only 5 Ingredients:

I was completely shocked to find out how little ingredients that are in this recipe. Like… 5. FIVE!!!

Then, if you’re not a fan of a spicy kick in the seasoning, you can also reduce the amount of “spice,” to make it closer to your liking!

Saltines Or Oyster Crackers

These can be made with Oyster crackers or saltines! But I prefer the saltines for easier grab and go snaking.

Baked Seasoned Crackers?

Not these! These are NO BAKE seasoned crackers! Simply toss and let air dry! How easy is that?!

    I love how simple this recipe is! I sent it to the other half so he can make something himself for the potluck this week! #client

    1. Jessica says:

      Oh excellent! It is totally simple… and addicting. Beware. 😉

      1. Dawn says:

        How many days do these stay fresh in the container

        1. Jessica says:

          Hi Dawn! You know, in an air-tight container, I want to say the most I’ve ever had them stored, has been a couple of days. We always eat them before we give the chance to get stale. LOL! I hope that helps!

  2. Tanya says:

    Crackers are great snack. And these ones are especially so!

    1. Jessica says:

      You’re so right Tanya!!! Thank you for coming by!!!

  3. Pat says:

    These looked so good I purposely bought saltiness. You don’t say what size box and I only wanted to make one sleeve so I used have of the oil and spices. This recipe is so simple and delicious I wish I made more. I experimented and placed some on a cookie sheet and sprinkled some shredded parmesan and baked them. They were so good with artichoke tapenade. Thank you for the recipe.

    1. Jessica says:

      So glad that you liked it! I love them too!

    2. Julia hetzel says:

      I accidentally got vegetable oil will this make a difference?

      1. Jessica says:

        You know, I haven’t tried vegetable oil for these, but I can’t imagine that it would make much of a difference!

    3. Barbara Wafer says:

      It should be a 16 oz box of crackers or 4 sleeves.

  4. Johnna says:

    love your recipe! thank you!.. I modified the crackers though, used the saltine minis!! came out great! and the kids love them bite size, new take on cheese its 😉

        They were divine!!!! Here for another batch. Trying a tbls of dill weed and a tbls of lemon pepper from other recipes. Thanks again for the greatest recipe ever!! Btw using a huge oven bag for tossing makes it so much easier.

  13. Sara says:

    Hi there,
    “garlic pepper”, is that garlic salt?

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Sara! No there’s actually a spice you can get at the store that is garlic pepper. It’s one of my favorites. Here’s an example of some that you can get HERE

    I love these crackers, but am looking for a substitute for the canola oil for health reasons. Vegetable oil didn’t work for the recipe. Has anyone tried avocado, coconut, or olive oil on these?

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Celinda! I haven’t tried any of those oils, but would love to hear from other’s as well!

    2. Recipescout says:

      Yes, we use olive oil. I love olive oil and since it’s such a healthy choice, it’s a no brainer,

  15. Lisa says:

    Tried these today and while they are good and savory they are just a bit too salty for my taste.
    I will re-try the recipe using garlic powder and black pepper. Not the garlic pepper (or nearly as much of it) as it has additional sodium.
    I mixed everything together in a two gallon ziplock… that was very handy and clean-up was super quick!
    Thanks for the super easy snack idea!

  16. Bobbie Persinger says:

    I use oyster crackers. Family likes the bite sized snack better.

    1. Jessica says:

      Oh yes!! Those would be great to use too! Thank you for sharing!

  17. JoAnn says:

    Has anyone used the Chex cereal instead of crackers using this recipe?

    1. Jessica says:

      Ooooh, I haven’t but that sounds amazing!

  18. sandy says:

    I made these, they are sooo good. We eat them with taco soup. even better. I used unsalted crackers, they weren’t so salty.

    1. Jessica says:

      YUM!!!! Eating these with taco soup sounds amazing! Thank you for sharing!
