Crock Pot Spicy Crackers


3/4 cup cooking oil

1 tsp orange peel

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp Perfect Pinch Garlic and Bell Pepper

1 pkg  powdered Ranch Dressing

Honey- large squeeze from bottle

20 oz oyster crackers


Rub small amount of oil on crock pot.

Mix dry ingredients together.

Stir in remaining oil and honey to dry ingredients, mixing well.

Add crackers and stir, coating all crackers completely.

Pour into crock pot.

Cook on low for 2-3 hours, stirring often.

Store in large zip sealed baggie, or glass container.


Helpful Hints:

Just my opinion, but glass is much easier to clean than Tupperware, when storing greasy foods!

Using a larger crock pot will make it easier to stir.

This is one of those “add what you like” recipes. Any spice can be added/subtracted to suit your own tastes.

Sprinkle cheese on top.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

Leave in oven while oven cools down for 10-15 minutes.

Remove and cool on counter to finish firming up.

This is my version, there are too many online identical versions to give credit.

Try your own add ins, possibilities are endless! Chopped onions, black olives,  sweet peppers, etc.
