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 have oyster crackers! Hallelujah, I have oyster crackers in my pantry RIGHT NOW. I never have them. This is literally a sign. Making tomorrow. Fantastic idea, friend.

Jessica @ Sweet Menu

I love ANYTHING with cinnamon so this snack mix is totally my thing! So creative!


Have you tried subbing 1 cup of almonds for 1 of the cups of crackers?


I love this! This snack mix is going with me on my next road trip!

Cookbook Queen

OMGGGGG. This stuff would be dangerous in my house. Because I’d never share!!

Jane K.

These look so good! I used to make a snack using oyster crackers and a homemade ranch seasoning – – they were SOOOO good (this was before you could get any and all kinds of chips and crackers with ranch seasoning!). Can’t wait to make these for the kids!!

Mary T Stratton

Like the question regarding almonds, do you think this recipe might work with peanuts, walnuts or pecans too? I’m looking for something with protein/fat. Thanks for any suggestions.


I am headed to the store (again!) after work and wanted something sweet to make for the boys for a snack. This is perfect! Thanks!


Much as I love cinnamon, I am going to try this without it. My daughter is highly allergic to it. I am thinking it will taste like sea salt caramels,

Jenny Flake

Oh my gosh!!! Making this as soon as possible πŸ™‚ Mmmmmm!!

Trish - Mom On Timeout

Oh man! I know these would be crazy addictive! I see these and a movie night in my near future πŸ™‚


Question: Should I add the vanilla, when I adding the cinnamon? I want to make this today. Just want to make sure I’m doing everything right. Thank you. πŸ™‚


I’m going to try 1 cup of butter next time instead of the 1/2 cup because it was so thick I couldn’t spread it over the crackers.

Jocelyn @BruCrew Life

No way would I share that goodness with anyone!! Holy cow! Total amazingness!!

La Lee

Me & my 8 y/o eagerly attempted to make this treat, but both are our attempts were a bust. Our butter & brown sugar combo was way… to thick and didn’t spread (it was more like a glob). Should I increase the amount of butter used?
Please advise.

Thank you.

Renee @ Tortillas and Honey

This is suck a creative way to use oyster crackers! And anything churro flavored is a winner!


I have to laugh because I have made this two times already and am making it for cards tomorrow night – all with your original recipe. I added the vanilla when I added the cinnamon. I noticed it was pretty thick but was able to make it work. (It mixes pretty easy in a bowl, ha!) I will try it with a cup of butter for tomorrow. πŸ˜‰ My niece is going to make it for her 4H demo, and my family and co-workers just love it. It’s going to become a go-to recipe for sure!

Christine Clark

omg just made these with mini ritz crackers as I can’t get oyster here in the uk, will have to give them away as I can’t stop eating them,

Holly K

These made me the hero of the bake sale at work today! πŸ™‚ And i have to admit that while i was putting it in baggies for the sale alot more was going in my mouth then in the baggies because OH MY GOODNESS. Incredible. I can’t say you didn’t warn us! A definite WINNER.


What are oyster crackers? I’ve never heard of them – not everyone lives in the US! Is there an alternative that I could use? x


WOW these are unbelievably good. They turned out perfectly. The addition of the salt ,cut the sweetness. I also used Splenda brown sugar

Ashley G

Do you think I could melt the butter and sugar in the microwave?? We are in a “transition” house right now until we move so I don’t have an oven and it’s killing me! Thanks!


OMG……this is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!!!! I made it this morning for a party I’m going to tomorrow……hope there’s some left…..I honestly can’t stop eating it!! Thanks soooooo much for sharing the recipe:-))))). I will DEFINITELY be making this again & again!!!


OH MY GOSH, OH MY GOSH, OH MY GOSH, I just made this to take to work tomorrow, I hope I don’t eat it all before then. Oyster cracker crack! I did put the crackers in an 8 cup Pyrex measuring cup and mixed it up in that and I lined my pan with a non stick mat. Thanks for sharing, I think ????!


PS I think they would be wonderful on vanilla ice cream!!


Does anyone know if I can use regular salt instead of Kosher? I don’t really want to buy that just for one recipe. I can’t wait to try this out, it sounds so good!

Do you think this could be made ahead and frozen or do you think it would get soggy?


Happy Christmas!
Thank you for a great gift idea for busy nurses. I made this & packaged in small holiday print ziplocks. I browned the butter before combining with other ingredients, & added 1-1/2 c salted dry roasted peanuts. Yum
