If you wake up in the middle of the night and feel like a late-night snack, then you’re in luck: these fire crackers will be sure to do the trick. Whether you eat them as a snack between meals, share them with friends, or enjoy them long after the sun goes down, here’s how you can create these scrumptious fire crackers.


  • 2 sleeves unsalted Saltine crackers
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Chinese five-spice powder
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chili crisp
  • 2 teaspoons white miso


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, miso, chili crisp, salt, and Chinese five-spice. Whisk them together before pouring them into a resealable box.
  2. Place the crackers in the bag and shake it up until the crackers are fully coated in the spice mix. Put the bag of crackers on a baking sheet and allow the crackers to marinate at room temperature for an hour at least.
  3. Once the hour is up, place the crackers on as many baking trays as needed. It’s alright if they overlap. Preheat your oven to 300 F while putting the bag with oil and spice on the kitchen counter.
  4. Bake the crackers for 10 minutes. Using a spoon, gather any spice and oil left in the resealable bag and scatter them over the crackers.
  5. Return the crackers to the oven and allow them to bake for another 10 minutes.
  6. Allow the crackers to cool on the baking sheet for five minutes before serving with the dip of your choice.
