Churro Flavored Oyster Crackers

A quick snack to throw together before a party, these tasty bites disappear quickly with a crowd!

Ingredients:

  • 5 cups oyster crackers (one large bag)
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Ankle height and hard to find at the supermarket, but they exist!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spread the crackers evenly over the pan before setting aside.

In a medium saucepan, combine the butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

Remove from the heat and quickly stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons of the cinnamon and the vanilla, then pour over the crackers. Stir the sugar mixture and crackers until the crackers are evenly coated.

Bake 10 minutes.

While the crackers bake, combine the sugar, remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and the salt in a small dish.

Once the crackers are baked, remove from the oven and quickly sprinkle the sugar mixture evenly over the hot crackers.

Let cool completely, then peel the crackers off the foil, breaking the sugar back up so you have individual crackers. Serve, or store in an airtight container.

This stuff is really, really tasty, especially for something so simple!
