Crock-Pot Fire Crackers

With Christmas right around the corner, I am always thinking of new food and gift ideas. 
I love to use my Crock-Pot all year long but especially during Thanksgiving and Christmas. So I decided to make a big batch of spicy crackers to serve as a snack this Thanksgiving and then package up as gifts for my family. Toasting these crackers in the Crock-Pot not only saved time but also made the room smell amazing! I call these delicious snacks Fire Crackers


Check out the recipe video here. 


Ingredients: 

Makes a large bowl full
  • 7oz box Cheez-Its crackers
  • 11 oz box Mini Saltines crackers {I used 3/4}
  • 11oz box Mini Butter crackers {I used 3/4}
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne powder
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire
  • 1 tbsp Tabasco

Directions: 

  1. Coat the inside of a Crock-Pot with nonstick spray. 
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together Worcestershire, Tabasco. and seasonings.
  3. Pour the crackers in the Crock-Pot and pour the mixture on top of the crackers.  
  4. Drizzle with the melted butter. Toss to coat evenly.
  5. Cover and cook on low for 1 1/2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes for even cooking and to prevent burning.
  6. Pour into a bowl and serve warm or at room temp.
*I have also used Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning or Old Bay Seasoning in place of the spices.

For these Fire Crackers you can use just about any cracker or cereal you like. Mini pretzels, goldfish, and nuts would also be tasty. I chose my daughter's favorite club crackers and then added cheese crackers and saltines. 
Coat the inside of a Crock-Pot with nonstick spray. 
Pour the crackers in the Crock-Pot.
In a small bowl, whisk together Worcestershire, Tabasco. and seasonings.
Pour the mixture on top of the crackers.  
Now drizzle with the melted butter. 
Toss to coat evenly.
Cover and cook on low for 1 1/2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes for 
even cooking and to prevent burning.
Pour into a bowl and serve warm or at room temp.
Serve on game day or holidays.
 You can also package and give as gifts!
