Spicy Ranch Crackers

Spicy Ranch Crackers - no bake snack with only 4 ingredients! Great for snacking or in soups!

I am always on the lookout for quick snacks for the holidays; especially no-bake treats. This recipe is from my Mom. She made these for Thanksgiving and everyone loved them! They are great on their own, but they are also great crumbled up over soups and salads. We've even served these with pasta dishes instead of garlic bread. I think they would also be good with a cheese ball or any other dips you might serve. I've already made a batch to have at our house for the holidays. I plan on serving these at our upcoming Christmas party!

These crackers have a kick from the cayenne pepper. I've made them with 1/2 tablespoon of cayenne and with a whole tablespoon of cayenne. The batch with 1/2 tablespoon of cayenne were very mild. I didn't taste any heat. I kicked up the cayenne on the second batch to a whole tablespoon. We didn't think they were overly spicy, but definitely adjust the amount of cayenne to your personal taste.

    1. I used a big bowl to mix the crackers up and stored them in ziplock bags.

    1. nope - just toss the crackers around for a few minutes and the oil will get absorbed.
