Here’s an addicting Chex party mix idea: use pretzel goldfish crackers, ranch dressing mix, lots of cereal (just for the halibut I tried some Kix with the Chex, really got crazy in here ha), and baby goldfish crackers, seasoned with parmesan cheese and ranch. I made a big batch in a 12×19 inch foil pasta/roasting pan, and baked it in the oven. Here’s how it turned out…. And if you have other tasty snack mix recipes like this, let minnow. Get it?!? Oh fish puns.

Ranch Snack Crackers Recipe - just mix oil with a few ingredients and bake

Remember these? Oyster crackers seasoned with ranch dressing mix, lemon pepper, garlic, and dill. One of my favorite things to eat when I was a young whippersnapper, ha!

I made this recipe for a quick kids’ snack and they loved shaking the bag to mix the ingredients together. Here’s what we did…


  • 1 packet (1 oz) dry ranch dressing mix
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 bag (16 oz) oyster crackers
  • 1/2 tsp dill weed
  • 1/4 tsp lemon pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder


Preheat oven to 250ºF.

Pour crackers into a gallon size zipper bag. Pour oil over crackers, seal, and shake gently to coat.

Add ranch mix and spices to bag, then seal, and toss until coated.

Pour onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.
