Over a year ago I had a co-worker bring these delicious crackers to work and I’ve been in love ever since.  I immediately asked for the recipe knowing that I would make them some day.   The saltines that I used were the multi-grain crackers to make it a bit more healthier than just using the traditional saltines.  Firecrackers are good for parties, travel, or just a good snack at the office.

Print Recipe


Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes


1 box saltine crackers
3/4 cup canola oil
2 Tablespoons Crushed Red Pepper
1 package hidden valley ranch
1/2 teaspoon of dill weed
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon of onion powder


In large bowl mix all of the ingredients using a whisk except the crackers.

Place the crackers into a gallon size ziplock bag and pour in the wet mixture. Gently shake the bag and lay flat. Rotate the bag every 15 minutes for one hour.

Place the crackers onto a paper towel lined baking sheet to dry for 30 minutes. Put the crackers back into a clean ziplock bag for storage.
