Spicy Ritz Crackers

on June 12, 2015

The recipe for today came from my brother-in-law’s wife. She makes great snacks, and brought these to a family gathering recently. Everyone loved them!!! I have a couple of good snack recipes that she’s given me and I’ve been making for years. Now – I have to warn you – you will become addicted to these Spicy Ritz Crackers. No kidding. I’m totally serious. And it’s best if you don’t make them when you’re alone in the house. I mean, not like that was a problem for me or anything. I mean, well, maybe it was a bit of a problem. Ok! It was a VERY BIG problem. I won’t make these again unless it’s a half hour before I need to take them somewhere. Yes. They’re that good. Seriously. It’s bad. I mean, they’re good. But that’s bad! Ugh! So good.

Spicy Ritz Cracker Snack

Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Spicy Ritz Crackers

Put into a large bowl:

1 package of Ritz Crackers

Mix together:

1 stick butter, melted

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 Tablespoon red pepper flakes

1 package Hidden Valley Ranch mix

Pour over crackers.


1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Stir gently.

Bake on a baking sheet at 300 degrees for 15 minutes.

Separate when cool.


This has all of the tasty ingredients we love.


It seems weird to mix the crackers, but it went just fine.


They don’t break up like I expected. They all stayed whole.


It says to separate the crackers when they’re cool, but I took two forks and separated them a bit right out of the oven.


You can see all of the “goodies” on the crackers here.


The name of these should be “crack crackers”. Yes – I admit I have a problem. I can’t eat just one of these crackers. Just one batch, I mean.

    It doesn’t say how long to bake or at what temperature. At least I can’t find it.

    • I’m so sorry! That’s really weird! The recipe was posted 4 years ago, but it looks like the recipe itself is gone for some reason. If you look at the handwritten recipe, it says to bake it at 300 degrees for 15 min. Thanks for reading, and thank you so much for the heads-up on the recipe! I’ll fix it ASAP!
