There’s a new snack in town.  just in time for the holidays. 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 :)

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'm so glad!!!! that's great your kids like them too, I'll have to let me niece try them! Thanks for stopping by, so glad to hear some feedback on them :)

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!
    becky gall hardin
    that's wonderful! we made a tamed version last weekend too for some family that doesn't like things too spicy. I really liked it that way. so glad you tried them! thank you!!!
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.

    That's wonderful!!! I'm so glad you liked them! And good idea about dividing the batch...I'll have to try that next time! Thanks so much for stopping by!
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?
    becky gall hardin
    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!
These are amazing! I've made them numerous times and they never last long.
can you use pancake syrup instead of maple?
    The Cookie Rookie
    Maple syrup works better due to consistency, and sweetness. The pancake syrup might work, but would be much sweeter. Let me know if you try it!
      I made them with pancake syrup and they are awesome! Cam I ask how do you store them and for how long do you think they'll last?
        Becky Hardin
        That's awesome Lucy! I'll have to remember that for next time. We sealed them in an airtight tupperware and they should last a couple weeks. Glad you liked them!
Made these yesterday and I'm officially addicted!! Awesome recipe!
Liz Collins
These sound and look great, however, can you use another sweetener in place of syrup, my family does not like maple syrup. What about agave?
    Becky Hardin
    I think agave would work although i've never tried it. It should work in a very similar way though. Hope you love them!
I just made these and actually instead of the butter and canola tried refined coconut oil (so it didn't have the coconut flavor). They turned out great! Of course I can't compare with what they originally would have been, but to make them a little more healthy, it worked great! Love the addicting
    Becky Hardin
    I LOVE the coconut oil idea! Great thinking and such a healthy substitution! Thanks so much for letting me know!

Wow I made these for our neighborhood Superbowl Party! Everyone kept say theese are so addictive! I did change the recipie a smidge. As soon as I took them out of the oven I put them ina bowl with brown sugar and cinnamon and shook them up! Delicious! I now have request's for these at the next party. :-)
