You know me - just always looking for that yummy little bite of something. I think Snack Mix recipes are awesome to have around for a gathering.
We had VBX at church last week. I saw this yummy Salty Toffee Churro Snack Mix made with oyster crackers and I couldn't resist. These are way yummy.. but like someone said.. coat anything with butter and cinnamon and sugar and you have a win. You HAVE to make this soon! Visit Cookies & Cups for more yummy recipes!
Salty Toffee Churro Snack Mix (adapted from Cookies & Cups)
5 cups oyster crackers
1 cup butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp granulated white sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp kosher salt
Line a large baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 350. Pour the oyster crackers into a large bowl. In a medium saucepan, combine the butter and brown sugar. Bring this mixture to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon and vanilla. Pour this over the oyster crackers and gently toss to coat. (you can also put oyster crackers on the foil and pour mixture on and gently toss to coat... avoid dirtying a bowl) Bake for 10 minutes or until bubbly. While baking, mix the topping in a small bowl.
After the ten minutes and you remove the oyster crackers from the oven, give them a gently toss to get all of the "goo" on the crackers. Using a teaspoon, gently sprinkle the topping all over the coated oyster crackers. I used a spatula and separated the pieces as I sprinkled.. to avoid them sticking together. Allow to cool and serve. SO YUMMY!
