Have you ever had those yummy little ranch crackers? You know the ones, made out of oyster crackers? Like Chex Mix, kind of. (For some reason they’re always around the teacher’s lounge and office parties at Christmas time.) They’re so good. They’re an addicting little snack.
I love buffalo sauce. Really L.O.V.E. it. I know lots of people share my sentiment I once had a friend who said she would eat a stick from the yard if it had buffalo sauce on it. I feel the same way.
I thought ….. I wonder what would happen if I combined those two things, ranch cracker and buffalo sauce. Hum. Buffalo stuff goes great with ranch, so it seemed only natural. Well, it was a GREAT idea.
You must try these! They are an easy snack for any party or cookout or get together. Spicy, but not too spicy. A nice little kick. You get the full buffalo flavor without deep frying anything! Oh yeah.
You could even pack them up in a pretty glass jar as Father’s Day gifts. Smart!!
