4 Ingredient Firecrackers, a 4th of July Snack

Summer snacks are big deal when you have kids at your house all the time, and finding ones that are friendly on the pocketbook can sometimes be a challenge. I remember the first time I had these Firecrackers-crackers with seasoning, and they were delicious! I thought they’d make the perfect snack for this 4th of July!

Recipe: Firecrackers Snack


  • Crackers (I used two packages for this amount)
  • 2/3 cup oil or a little more(I used olive oil)
  • 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (hence firecrackers)
  • 1 pkg of ranch dip (dried dip mix)


  1. Place your crackers in a large gallon size ziploc bag (or a gallon jar).
  2. Combine ingredients and pour into bag all over your crackers.
  3. Toss crackers around in bag until all are coated and let sit about 15 minutes, then serve!

I also bought some of the miniature crackers for the kids, and made them less hot.

    Interesting! The crackers do not get soggy at all? What is the best amount of time
    to let them sit and dry out? I just might have to try these. And I think some other spices might be fun to play around with too!

      You would think they would but they don ‘t. The longer you let them sit, the better they are!!! Also, some people prefer to bake them for a few minutes but it’s too hot to bake crackers! LOL

    We make something very similar using the miniature pretzels instead and then to give them a little extra crunch I bake them for 20 minutes on 300. So yummy!
