Spicy Snack Crackers to Kick Off Beat Michigan Week!!

I have a quick and simple snack to start off the biggest week of the year...
Beat Michigan Week...
Or for those who don't live in Ohio or Michigan
or live under a rock..
or is my mother...
It is the week leading up to the big Ohio State Michigan Game.
Which we will win...

So, to kick off this week I made these spicy crackers.
Perfect to snack on while watching the big game. 

These crackers would also be an easy snack to serve on Thanksgiving 
before the Turkey makes its appearance.  

So who is going to be watching the game?
Invite me over and I just may bring these yummies to share!

Go Bucks!!


Spicy Snack Crackers:

1 box of Cheese-its
1 box of Mini club crackers
1 packet of ranch dressing mix- powder
1 packet of zesty Italian dressing mix- powder
3/4 to scant full cup of vegetable oil
2-3 teaspoons of red pepper flakes

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

In a large bowl combine all the ingredients- mixing well with hands or spoon to ensure all sides of the crackers are well coated with oil and spices.  I added about 2.5 teaspoons of red pepper flakes to my mix, but if you do not like heat you may want to start with one teaspoon.  I started with 3/4 cup of oil but added a bit more to make sure all the crackers were coated well.

Spread the coated crackers in a rimmed baking pan and bake for 15-20 minutes, flipping the crackers halfway through.   

Store in an airtight container until ready to serve.  


  1. Yum! I love snack mixes and I love spicy. Will definitely have to try.

  2. ...I-O! These look yummy! I bet my brother (who will most certainly be watching said game) would love them...he loves all things spicy.

  3. Yum! These are going to make an appearance at our potluck at work.

  4. Hmmmm sounds yummy.
    I hope your Christmas was Merry.
    May your 2014 be full of blessings.
    X's and O's
