I hadn’t made these crackers in a long time, so I had forgotten that you don’t even have to turn on your oven to make them. You just toss everything together in a bowl!

First, you need store-bought oyster crackers. You know, the tiniest crackers you’ve ever seen. You’ll want two packages.

Next, butter. Lots of butter. 1 cup = 16 tablespoons = 2 sticks. Lots of butter.

Last, seasonings! I prefer to use my own Homemade Ranch Dressing mix, but you can buy a packet at the store if it saves your sanity. Shortcuts are allowed.

Add some extra garlic powder, dill, and lemon pepper. Toss in a bowl and pour on a couple of baking sheets.

Let them dry (or if you’re me, you just eat them immediately). Store them in an airtight container and serve them to everyone, everywhere!

I made them for our recent Halloween party. They were a huge hit! The California natives haven’t heard of them, at least the ones I know, but they were happy to ruin their diets for a few minutes.

      Thank you so much Diane! I’m glad you liked them. And your husband is a very smart man. :) That’s also what we say in culinary school…. butter and salt, that’s how you make dreams come true! Ha ha ha! Happy New Year. :D

  2. Sarah

    Bake them for about 10-15 mins at 250 degrees they won’t get soggy and last about a month ( if they don’t get ate by then )

      Also when you bake them no need to wait for them to dry.. eat them immediately:)

    How long do they last for?

    1. meggan

      Probably a week or so. It depends on your climate and the time of year. In humid situations, they’ll soften rapidly. If it’s cold where you are, you could keep them outside and they’ll stay fresher, longer. But just on the counter at room temperature, I’d say 4 to 5 days or maybe a bit longer. Sorry for the long-winded response. Thanks for your question!

  4. love love love these! My grandma used to make them. It was better than Cheeto dust!5 stars
