Recipe: Pinterest Crack-ers

I feel like so many different recipes have "crack" in their titles. As I've made Pinterest recipes, most of the "crack" recipes, call for Hidden Valley ranch mix...coincidence? 

I made these "Crack-ers" early this week and adapted the recipe a tad when I was making my own.

1. 1 bag of oyster crackers
2. 1/4 c of oil (I didn't have an entirely full bag so I didn't need the entire amount of oil)
2. 1 package of ranch mix (I used Hidden Valley)
3. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (I didn't have any of this, so I just used a garlic/herb dry marinade we had in our cupboard)
4. Light sprinkle of red pepper flakes (this wasn't included in my recipe, but my roommate made a similar recipe and included this in hers. It can get really spicy really fast though, so use it sparingly...)

1. Preheat the oven to 250*
2. Dump oyster crackers into a bowl and evenly coat them with the oil. I continued to flip them in the bowl while I was pouring the oil.
3. Sprinkle the dry ingredients over the crackers. I continually was flipping the crackers while doing this as well and sloshing them around in the bowl.
4. Spread the crackers out on a cookie sheet (I covered mine in tin foil for easy clean up) and put them in the oven for 15 minutes, mixing them up every 5 minutes.
5. VOILA, your crackers!

These remind me of ranch pretzels or ranch rice cakes that you can get in the grocery store, but these you can make at home! I divided my crackers into 2 small tupperware boxes and 1 larger one for storage. 

I ate almost an entire small tupperware of these the first night I made them! They are SO good and SO easy!

Happy cooking!
