Oyster crackers are one of the world’s most perfect foods. They can make a boring bowl of soup into a filling meal, they can be crumbled on top of a casserole, and they can be made into a salty, satisfying snack. But you know what makes oyster crackers even sweeter? Well, sugar, of course!
Case in point: Salted Toffee Oyster Crackers. These delectable little crackers are the perfect combo of salty and sweet, and, best of all, these are super easy and inexpensive to make. All you need is oyster crackers, dark brown sugar, butter, salt and cayenne pepper to taste (the cayenne is optional, so skip it if you plan to share with little ones).
To make Salted Toffee Oyster Crackers, you will melt the sugar and butter together to create a toffee. Then pour it over the crackers and let them bake in the oven for a few minutes. You can find the full recipe at Simply Sated.
Five Boys Baker has a different take on these addictive crackers. Jodi’s Sweet and Salty Churro Toffee Snacks uses cinnamon and vanilla to create a churro-like topping for her oyster crackers. She also urges readers not to buy generic brand oyster crackers, but rather to spend a little extra on the Nabisco brand, as they seem to hold up better with this recipe.
Of course, there are a lot of ways to turn oyster crackers into an amazing snack. If you want something savory rather than sweet, you can try this recipe for Craveable Seasoned Oyster Crackers from Southern Living. Instead of sugar and spice, these crackers get their flavor from a packet of ranch dressing mix, along with additional seasonings, like dill powder and lemon pepper.
Leigh at Don’t Sweat the Recipe uses a packet of ranch dressing mix to turn oyster crackers into something memorable. She also adds red pepper flakes to make these spicy and even more addictive.
How perfect would these be on top of a bowl of chili with some sharp shredded cheese and sour cream? OK, suddenly, we’re starving!
