I had to try making these, didn’t have any kind of occasion, they just looked so good. Also didn’t want to make a whole box full so I just used one sleeve of crackers, 1/3 cup oil, 1/2 pkg ranch dressing and 1/2 tbsp. or so red pepper flakes. And so far I think I’ve sampled them half a dozen or so times, but they are resting in a closed container so I can taste them after they’ve ‘matured’ a little. I do know I’m making these the next time I have to bring something to a potluck. Thanks so much for sharing.
