Salted caramel has long been a beloved flavor combination in the world of desserts. The perfect balance between sweet and salty tantalizes the taste buds and leaves you craving more. The Salted Caramel Cracker Bites take this flavor profile to a new level, using oyster crackers as a base to create a delightful treat that is easy to prepare and even easier to eat!

Key Features:

No Chocolate, Pure Caramel: By skipping the chocolate often found in similar treats, the caramel gets a chance to truly shine, bringing its rich, buttery flavor to the forefront.

Bite-Sized Delight: Using oyster crackers makes these bites incredibly snackable. Their small size allows the caramel to coat each cracker perfectly.

Versatile Treat: These can be served at parties, used as a sweet topping for ice cream or eaten straight out of the jar!

Recipe Breakdown:


Oyster Crackers: 1 9oz package

Butter: 1 cup (2 sticks)

Brown Sugar: 1 cup

Vanilla Extract: 2 teaspoons

Cinnamon: ½ teaspoon

Salt: 1 teaspoon


Setup: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper to prevent sticking.

Layering the Base: Evenly spread the oyster crackers on the lined baking sheet.

Making the Caramel: In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon, and stir until the mixture dissolves. Allow this mixture to boil while you continue stirring. After 2-3 minutes, the caramel should thicken slightly and become a lighter shade.

Coating the Crackers: Remove the caramel from heat and quickly pour it over the oyster crackers. Gently mix until all the crackers are coated with the caramel goodness.

Baking: Sprinkle the coated crackers with salt. Bake them in the preheated oven for about 7-9 minutes. Keep a close eye on them to ensure the caramel does not burn.

Cooling and Storing: Once baked, let the crackers cool. They'll become even crunchier as they cool. After cooling, break them into small clusters and store in an airtight container to maintain freshness
