sriracha maple oyster crackers

one thing i always think of when i think of the holidays are homemade treats.  usually i think of sweets, cookies and fudge and all of that good stuff, but i also think of the salty variety!  our favorite snack for the holidays is my mom’s FAMOUS chex party mix.  omg.  you have to try it.  i have visions of my dad eating this by the bag-full while watching chiefs football :)

but theres a new snack in town.  just in time for the holidays. sriracha and maple oyster crackers.

sriracha is all the rage this season…and for good reason. its so fresh and delicious.  i don’t like super spicy things, so the maple syrup (use the real stuff!) really cuts the spice.  a great combination.  this was all mom’s idea…good job mom!

these are also great because you can make a large quantity, and then freeze for later! (just like the chex mix) but beware…its pretty tempting knowing they’re just sitting in the freezer waiting for you when you get home…they’ll be gone in no time :)

    I thought your recipe sounded good, so I gave it a try. I love sweet, spicy, salty, and these are AMAZING! Yes, they’re addictive, too! My two year old and four year old couldn’t keep their little hands off these! Thanks for sharing!

    I made these last night. SO YUMMY. Totally addictive. I don’t like things too spicy, so used 2T sriracha and that was perfect. Thanks for the recipe!

    I made these last night and OMG they are ADDICTING! I had bought a box of oyster crackers but didn’t know how many ounces were in your bag. I used the whole 14 oz box and it turned out fine. The only thing I would have done differently was I would have divided the batch on to two cookie sheets to start with. I ended up having to do it at the end to get them crispy and unstuck from each other. Otherwise, the recipe is fantastic and I will definitely be making this again!

    BTW – they don’t have a mapley taste, in case anyone is wondering. Just a deliciously fabulous sweet & spice glaze. I used 2 T of the sriracha too and it was perfect.

    Although these are pretty awesome as written, I want to up the maple flavor a bit. I used 3 T sriracha and love the spice level but can I either add more honey or syrup?

      Yes you definitely can. We made two batches for thanksgiving, one with more honey. I loved it. You can play around with it to make it either more spicy or sweeter. Thanks for letting us know how you like it!

let me know what you think!
