Toffee Strips

My siblings are quite a bit older than me. Growing up, my sister that is 14 years older than me used to watch me a lot while my mom worked nights and my dad did things around the house. She always did fun things with me. The last time I ate these, I was probably 4 years old, when her and I made them together. I forgot all about them until I came across them in a cookbook a few years back and was like "Hey, I've had these before. I made them with Kris when I was little!" I FINALLY got around to making them. They taste just like I remember them. Enjoy!

1 1/2 c butter
1 3/4 c brown sugar
box of graham crackers
chopped pecans (optional)

Break graham crackers in 4. Line a jelly roll pan with foil and place graham crackers pieces on foil. Melt butter with brown sugar. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, so caramel sauce is smooth. Pour over graham crackers evenly. Sprinkle with nuts if desired. Bake in a 350 degree for 10 minutes. Let cool completely.

Dilly Crackers

These are such an easy snack, and super delicious. However, they are a bit addicting. You've been warned. I've seen variations on this recipe, some you need to bake, some have other seasonings, etc. I've taken bits and pieces of them all and this is how I make mine.

1 package Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix (NOT dip mix)
1 c olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp. dill weed
2 bags oyster crackers

Pour dressing mix, oil, garlic salt, dill weed and oyster crackers together in a big bowl. Mix well.

That's it...easy, right? Enjoy!
