Salty Churro Toffee Snack Mix

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.

Salty Churro Toffee Snack Mix. This is SO crazy addictive and delicious! Salty/Sweet/Cinnamony/Buttery. PERFECT for parties!

How to Make the Best Snack Mix

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…

Hello Shelly!

Thanks so much for this recipe. I made it for my daughter’s school bake sale and it came out GREAT! My toughest critics( my husband and daughter) LOVED it. Since the Super Bowl is the day after the sale, I decided to put the mix in bags with gold and red ribbons and called it Super Bowl Sunday Salty Churro Snack Mix. They look and taste great. Thanks again for such a unique, quick and easy recipe.

I made this last night as a “try out” for the holidays. I put about a cupful! into a bowl for my husband while they were still warm – and he practically inhaled them. But he didn’t say anything. I was determined not to ask his opinion (especially since I had already decided they are a winner!) and waited. After awhile, he said, “Those would be better if they were bigger – they were the tiniest cookies I’ve ever seen.” LOL Looking forward to making mega-batches for holiday gatherings. Thank you SO much for such and easy, delicious, and different… Read more »

Thank you so much for including this in your Super Bowl faves! It is now one of our favorites too! My son loves churros and I thought he might like these as well. Problem is, he can barely get his hands on any because my fingers are always in the bowl!
The salt is a perfect touch to the other flavors. Another touchdown, Shelly! (That sounded cuter in my head ?)

Don’t get me wrong, this is a creative and fun recipe but for us it was sickeningly salty.

Between the butter & oyster crackers, there’s more than enough sodium. Next time we won’t add salt or perhaps we’ll find a substitute for crackers. We were thinkin animal crackers or chex!

Side note: I’m not really sure what you meant by “break the crackers” because in your final picture they look whole like ours. Thanks for sharing

I live in Canada. No oyster crackers I could find not mini ritz so I used pretzel goldfish and omitted the salt. Mmmmmmm

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

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

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 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!

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

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

These made me the hero of the bake sale at work today! 🙂 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.

Christine Clark

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. 😉 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!

Renee @ Tortillas and Honey

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

Hi.
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.

Jocelyn @BruCrew Life

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

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.

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. 🙂
