FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Do you have to use mini saltine crackers?

No. I love to use mini crackers but you don’t have to use them. You can find them with the other crackers at your local grocery store. Regular sized salty crackers will work (just use the same amount.)

Can these be made into “Firecrackers”?

Yes! If you want to make these into Firecrackers you will just want to add a teaspoon or so of red pepper flakes. You could also add a sprinkling of hot sauce or cayenne pepper.

Can I use salted butter?

No, you don’t want to use salted butter with this recipe. The salt from the seasoning packets is more than enough. Using salted butter might make it too salty for most people’s tastes.

Can I double this recipe?

Absolutely! If you are looking to serve a larger crowd, I highly suggest doubling this recipe. These do not last long!

How do you store leftovers?

These can be stored in an airtight container on the counter where they will keep for up to 5 days. They can also be frozen. Place in a freezer-safe container and they will keep for up to 3 months. To defrost, remove from the freezer to the countertop until thawed.
