Seasoned saltine crackers that are simple to make and add a special touch for your dips and spreads at parties. I have had these on several occasions at bachelorette parties and babies showers but was never given the recipe. My sister had them recently at a birthday party, got the recipe, and passed it on to me. Unfortunately, I don't know who to credit for this, but it's certainly a keeper!!! Was initially concerned about the amount of oil, but hey, it's party food, RIGHT? I have used whole wheat crackers and different kinds of dip/dressing mixes successfully so have fun and get creative!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line crackers on ends (like dominoes) in an air-tight container.
  2. In a small bowl, mix oil, dressing mix, peppers, and garlic powder.
  3. Stir until all ingredients are well mixed.
  4. Continue to stir to prevent the pepper from settling on the bottom of the bowl.
  5. Spoon mixture evenly over crackers, like drizzling icing on a cake.
  6. Close lid tightly and flip the container over every 5 minutes for about 20 minutes. Lightly shake back and forth to make sure all the crackers are coated.
  7. Store in a ziplock bag. Will keep for about a week -- if they last that long!

I add dill (about 1 T) and use oyster crackers (which are easier to stir). Giving these for Christmas gifts this year with a little jar of chili seasoning.

I have been making this for years however I use pretzels, oyster crackers, rice chex (or any kind you like) and peanuts. Add cayenne pepper to the oil. I base the amount of cayenne by the color of the oil for heat. I also let mine sit upside down overnight. It's always the snack mix that is requested at parties.

I am always asked to bring these to parties. I bake them for 5 minutes so that they are dried. People love them. I've also used Multigrain cracker also.
