I liked the original recipe for the Fire Crackers but I wanted a little more "kick" to mine. I added the flavors that I use on some of my other snack mixes and it turned out great. After they are ready, I put them in snack bags and give them as small treats to friends.

How To Make jeanne's fire crackers

  • 1
    Into a gallon zip lock bag, put everything except the crackers. (The pepper flakes will stick to the side of the zip lock bag, so you may want to add a little more than what you think you need.)
  • 2
    Zip the bag and mix the ingredients with your hands by squeezing the bag a few times.
  • 3
    Add both boxes of saltines. Zip and toss gently to coat evenly.
  • 4
    Every 15 minutes or so, toss bag gently for the next hour or until crackers are coated.
  • 5
    Let set several hours or overnight. You may put into another zip bag or other airtight container.
