These easy Ranch Oyster Crackers are no bake, full of flavor, and INSANELY addictive! Crackers tossed in butter and spices, you can’t go wrong with that!
Did you grow up eating Ranch Oyster Crackers?
I know I did. They are less common than the ubiquitous Chex Mix, but my mom made them all the time. Nothing says “I love you” like a homemade snack!
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.
Everyone in your life is going to want to gobble these up. Luckily, the recipe makes a giant batch! (Remember the butter? 2 bags of crackers? Giant batch).
