This Salty Churro Toffee Snack Mix is SO crazy addictive and delicious! Salty/Sweet/Cinnamony/Buttery perfection!
Run, don’t walk, to the kitchen right now and make this.
I feel like that’s all I have to say…
HA. Right. What would this blog be without a whole slew of unsolicited opeenionnnns?
Boring. That’s what it would be.
Anyhow, this snack mix is a riff on my Praline Crack recipe (which you NEED to make if you haven’t already). And between you and me, I should have called it Churro Crack, but the Crack police get on me when I use “crack” in a title. So I opted for the super wordy Salty Churro Toffee Snack Mix, as not to offend.
But between you and me, it’s Churro Crack.
It’s so super easy, and really impossible to mess up. Unless you burn it. So don’t do that.
You start with about 5 cups of Oyster Crackers. It’s basically an entire bag. Lay them out on a foil lined baking sheet…
Then boil together some butter and brown sugar and add a dash of cinnamon too. Coat your crackers with that mess…
Stir them to make sure all the crackers get coated evenly.
And bake it up! It will be bubbly and gorgeous.
While it’s in the oven make up a salty, cinnamon sugar…
And as soon as it comes out of the oven sprinkle it all over the top…
Let it cool and then break the crackers apart…
I’m telling you, this stuff is legit.
Make it now, thank me later.
