Like all mixed foods, there is a star ingredient. It's that one ingredient that everyone wishes they were getting in every single bite, the little pieces that people dig around for when no one else is looking, the star of the show, if you will. In this case, our snack mix consists of spicy ranch crackers, popcorn, and pretzels. Each of these ingredients is good on their own and they are even better together.


  • 2 cups Oyster crackers
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon dry Ranch seasoning powder
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes more if you like things extra spicy!
  • 2 cups small pretzels
  • 2 cups popped popcorn
  • 8 ounces Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp Cheddar


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the crackers, vegetable oil, Ranch powder, and red pepper flakes. Stir to coat all the crackers.
  3. Place a cooling rack (like you'd use to cool cookies) on a cookie sheet. Pour the oyster crackers over the cooling rack and spread them to form a single layer.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes. Stir and bake for another 10 minutes. Cool before proceeding.
  5. In a large bowl, add the cooled crackers, pretzels, and popcorn.
  6. Dice the cheese into small pieces and add to the bowl. Toss to combine.
