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.

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.
