Recipe by Petunia

This recipe came from Nana, who orginally must have gotten it from a Hidden Valley Ranch package. They make a tasty appetizer or snack.

Top Review by Chef Patience

Oyster crackers flavored with Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix are so good! The recipe I got from my aunt was similar to this one: Place oyster crackers, ranch mix and oil in a large, clean paper grocery bag (I've never added garlic powder, and use two paper bags, one inside the other), Shake until the crackers are coated. Leave the crackers in the folded over bag (so they don't get stale) until the oil has been absorbed by the bags. Store in an airtight container. Mmmm...Good!
