I like to make several batches throughout the year, not just at Christmas time.  Store them in an air-tight container and snack your heart out. Just be careful the bowl may end up  becoming empty faster than you think.

I really like the lock down seals on these Rubbermaid Storage Containers. (affiliate link). They are BPA Free and you can use them for storage, freezing, microwave and refrigerator. Buy this set and you can get rid of all those odds and ends of storage containers cluttering your cupboards.

I have been making these tasty treats for a long while, I like mine a bit more spicy so I add cyanne pepper to taste and they come out great. Thank you for the recipe. Don M.

Once you have made them, how long do they stay fresh? We often put them in small clear cello bags, wrap with a small ribbon and give them away? Thank you.

Great recipe! thanx so much! You can also buy 10 pound box of Keebler Oyster Crackers from Amazon for between $10 and $27 (priced depends on reserves/quantity). You can also get HVR dry dressing mix in a 25 pound box for approximately $150; Again at Amazon! Can you tell I make these all the time for work and home! I have 7-10# boxes in my kitchen as I write! WTF!!! Also, I love the Rubbermaid containers! I can't use anything else and gave all my other brands, as well as Rubbermaid away! They have 3 for $9.99 to $12.99 for three! Now that's a great deal! Just love sharing! And this recipe is awesome! I have been making it for about 30 years! Thanx again and have a great weekend!
