Ranch Cocktail Crackers are a quick and easy snack mix that is perfect for game day. This delicious party mix is flavored with ranch, dill and can be served with any combination of crackers you have on hand. My grandma’s recipe for Ranch Cocktail Crackers is always a hit at parties and gatherings!
Today is my 13th anniversary at my day job (I do commercial real estate marketing, in case you’re curious). I can’t really believe I’m old enough to have had a job for 13 years, but it is what it is.
I started the day off with a happy text from my office manager saying the power was out at the office so we got a late start. Happy anniversary to me.
Ranch Cocktail Crackers
I’ve been trying to post these easy crackers all week but I’ve been having host issues again and then I was just lazy but the important thing is I’m getting them up before Super Bowl, which I think they’d be perfect for.
I love looking through my cookbook collections for recipe favorites. This one comes from my grandma and I love that she wrote out the card for me. She wasn’t very specific in her measurements, so feel free to improvise with your favorite crackers. I know she’s used mini Ritz or Club crackers before and sometimes Cheez-Its.
You can also make this in the slow cooker, but it doesn’t actually save you any time, you still have to stir it every so often, so I feel like the oven is just as easy.
Ranch Cocktail Crackers
- 2 cups pretzel sticks
- 2 cups original Goldfish crackers
- 1 cup cheese Goldfish crackers
- 2 cups oyster crackers
- 2 cups rice Chex cereal
- 1 packet Ranch dressing
- 1 Tablespoon lemon pepper
- sprinkle of dill weed
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- Preheat oven to 150 degrees.
- Pour all crackers/pretzels/cereal into a 9 x 13 baking dish and mix together.
- In a small bowl, add the oil and seasonings and whisk together. Pour over the cracker mix and stir to evenly coat.
- Bake, gently turning every 20 minutes with a spatula, until oil is gone. Mine took about an hour.
Crackers used and measurements should be followed loosely. Sometimes she uses Cheez-Its, Chex Mix, mini Club crackers, etc. Feel free to swap out whatever you like.
Funny story (to me) about these pictures. I try really hard to take decent pictures but they never seem to stack up to most of my food blogging peers (“comparison is the thief of joy” & all that).
Anyway, when I was setting these up, I knocked one of the bowls over and they spilled all over my burlap placemat. I decided to run with it and actually like the way the pictures turned out but just know that these pretzels strewn about were not meticulously placed like some bloggers do.
I legit spilled them. #truelife
