Cinnamon Caramel Crunch

Hello friends!

Hoping this finds you all happy and healthy!  It is November 1st.  WHAT?  How is this even possible?  NOVEMBER!  CHRISTMAS SEASON!  AACCKK!  Most unnerving is that there will be snow soon.  At the beginning of every winter, I ask myself why we are still here?!  Then the first snow happens, and I am thrilled, and then I am over it again.  I mean, it is what it is.  Right?  

This is an easy little snack, fun for your kids' lunchboxes, snack time or anytime.  I am using things up in my pantry and I challenge you to do the same, use things already in your cupboards or freezer, pantry, or wherever you may keep your food.  Don't let anything go to waste, go bad, or become unusable.  I don't think you can have too many of these quick snack recipes.  I feed people, it is what I do, so when someone is coming over.... forget about it!

Be ready to get addicted to this.  I always try to warn you but, I mean, it is the least I can do!

Let's get the show on the road.  
  • 5 cups oyster crackers
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 T granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
Get your oven preheated to 350F.  Line a cookie sheet with foil and set it aside.  Place the oyster crackers in a large bowl and also, set them aside. 

In a medium saucepan, combine the butter and brown sugar.  Once it is melted bring it to a boil and let boil for 2 minutes while you stir.  DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT forget you are dealing with hot sugar, and you WILL land in the ER if you try and taste this!  After 2 minutes, remove from the heat and add in 1.5 tsp cinnamon and the vanilla.  Stir until completely combined.  Pour over the oyster crackers and stir with a rubber spatula until the crackers are well coated.  Pour unto your cookie sheet and spread them out into as single of a layer as possible.  Bake for 10-15 minutes.  WHILE that is happening, mix together your 2T sugar and 1tsp cinnamon, you will need to sprinkle your crackers when you remove them with this mixture and let sit until cooled.  Break up the crackers and store in an airtight container or a Ziploc bag!
