These ranch oyster crackers are the perfect party snack, they are so easy to make and come together with 6 ingredients in less than 30 minutes.  I will warn you they they are super addicting! They are great for the holidays or a super fun game watching snack.  They are great as a stand alone snack or make a fun addition to a snack board or a unique savory hostess gift in jar.

All you need is:

  • Crackers – we personally love the small oyster crackers, but you can do regular or mini saltines are well.  I buy these all target but you can find them in most large super markets or in bulk on amazon.
  • Oil – I use avocado but any neutral oil will work
  • Ranch Seasoning – you can buy a packet to make it easy or I use my own blend
    • 1 tsp dried dill weed
    • 1 1/2 tsp salt
    • 2 tsp garlic powder
    • 1 tsp onion powder

How to Make Easy Ranch Crackers

Mix your seasonings and oil together.  Then add in the crackers until throughly coated.
