Easy Ranch Snack Mix; bite-sized crackers and cheesy goldfish all tossed in a ranch coating and toasted, it is snacking perfection made in minutes!
Easy Ranch Snack Mix is the perfect snack for any time! Everyone loves it! It is sooooo easy to make, which is good because you will be making this a lot!
My boys love oyster crackers, I cannot keep them stocked, the gobble them up! Of course we also love Goldfish crackers ( I mean who doesn’t love those cheesy smiling fishes?!)
My grandma used to make these ranch flavored oyster crackers for the holidays and they were amazing! It took no time at all for her to whip up a big bowl of delicious crackers and she would always have little bowls of the crackers sitting out for us to snack on.
When my boys started on their oyster cracker binge I knew I could really blow them away by making them ranch. But I wasn’t content with just the oyster crackers, I had to throw in a bag of Goldfish too, deeeelicious!
My husband and his friends chowed down on these simply amazing crackers and I would often catch Dean with the whole tub!
They are just so perfectly flavored, perfectly toasted and perfectly popable. They are sooo addicting!
Easy Ranch Snack Mix is so easy your kids can help make them. You just mix a dry ranch dressing packet with a little garlic salt and oil in a large ziploc bag. Then you add in the crackers, zip it shut and let the kids shake it up!
Then you just bake them for about 20 minutes and you have an incredible snack everyone is going to love!!
This is the perfect snack to make on the weekend to prepare for the upcoming week, just whip up a big batch or two and you have enough for an after school snack, to pack in a lunch box and the perfect snack for TV bingeing on the weekend!
So make this Easy Ranch Snack Mix and have a flavorful snack on hand all the time!!
Can I add other things to this mix?
Of course! That is what I love about this mix! Feel free to add your favorite nuts like peanuts or try tossing in some pretzels!
Can I spice this up?
Sure! If you are looking to make things a little spicy go ahead and toss in a bit of cayenne, powdered chipotle or any other spicy flavoring that you like!
Does this package/travel well?
Yes!! This is the perfect snack to send in care packages, give as gifts, or take on the road for all those car trips.
Can I add anything else to mix?
You can add anything you like to this mix, pretzels, nuts, other crackers. I would suggest doubling the amount of seasonings and oil and making sure whatever else you add to the mix is equal to the amount of oyster crackers and goldfish crackers.
Ranch Salad Dressing Seasoning Mix- This is the dry mix that comes in a packet.
Vegetable Oil- You could also use canola oil if you prefer.
Garlic salt- This adds a little more flavor and you could use garlic powder.
Oyster Crackers- These are the perfectly poppable size for this snack.
Gold Fish Crackers- I like the cheesy flavor these give this snack mix.
