The Trendy New Snack: Saltine Crackers With Butter On Them

Flip it!

Have you ever tried this snack before?


The humble cracker is a very versatile snack. You can plop them into some tomato soup or spread them on a charcuterie board. Or, you can simply eat them straight from the box just like that.

When we think of crackers, we most likely think of such popular types like Saltines or Ritz. One is salty and one is buttery – and depending on your mood, that’ll determine what you nosh on. But what if you want both in one cracker?

Well, many people have probably been spreading butter on their Saltines for years, and we’ve just never known it.

Turn saltine crackers into a gourmet party snack. This recipe is cheap, delicious and requires no cooking!


1 ⅔ cups olive oil

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

½ teaspoon black pepper

2 (1 ounce) envelopes ranch dressing mix

3 tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes

1 (16.5 ounce) package multigrain saltine crackers


Place the olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, ranch dressing mix, and crushed red pepper flakes in a 2-gallon plastic zipper bag. Seal the bag and smoosh with your hands to thoroughly combine the oil and spices. Place the crackers into the bag, seal, and turn the bag over to cover the crackers with the spice mix. Let the bag sit for about 1 hour, then turn again. Repeat several more times until the crackers are well-coated with spice mix, and allow the bag to sit overnight. Remove crackers and serve.

Personally, I remember growing up and doing this in my household. But after someone posted a video of spreading butter on a Saltine cracker, it has quickly gone viral and become the latest snack craze to flood the web.

This simple snack is a great way of enjoying Saltines, and it’s so easy to make as well. All it requires is crackers and butter – a great late-night snack on the days you might forget to hit the grocery store.

Of course, you will want to make sure that you leave your butter out so that it softens to room temperature. You don’t want to use hard butter as it will just cause your cracker to break apart and crumble.
