O.G.G!! Candy Crackers!

That’s Carolynese for Oh, Good Grief!! This campfire/tailgating recipe is worthy of my traditional rant.

This is the easiest, yummiest, fastest little finger treat you could ever imagine.DSC00259

Just look at all that ooey, gooey goodness. Saint loved them. And seriously, your 3 year old could make these. Here’s what you need.



And really…you only need ONE kind of candy and ONE box of crackers. I wanted to test these to see which tasted best.

And here’s all you do.


Take a large sheet of foil. Or, you may do as I did and use two foil pie pans. Place crackers in the middle, add candy, top with another cracker. Now, wrap the foil around all the cracker/candy combos and fold it down at the top to make a little foil envelope. Now, place the foil envelope on your truck or car hood (if you are tailgating) or on a sunny picnic table or on the deck of your boat(if you are camping.) On a hot day, it takes less than 30 minutes for this melt together.

I originally planned to use Pretzel Flips and Rolos, but  the cute little football shaped HiHO crackers just jumped in my cart, and the  caramel filled kisses screamed from the candy aisle. The science teacher in me always wants to experiment.

The results: Pretzel Flips were the best cracker, caramel kisses had the best flavor, but the Rolos held their shape and were easier to eat.

You could try any miniature candy you like. I’m thinking mini peanut butter cups would be perfect. Suggestions in the comment section would be appreciated.

We tried several different camping recipes and I plan to put some of them, along with our camping pictures in a later post. For now, get out there and cheer on your favorite team. Rah! Rah! Rah! Sis Boom Ba!

Try saying that with a mouth full of candy crackers.
