These little bite sized crackers are going to become your new favorite treat! They are super simple to make, and have the perfect blend of sweet & salty. Whether you serve them for game day, Cinco de Mayo or are just craving something sweet, these are going to disappear in no time.

If you have ever made or even just had a traditional Churro, you know they have that crispy outside that is coated in cinnamon and sugar. Here we use the crackers to give it the structure and then bake them with the cinnamon and sugar to give them that crunch.

How To Make Ritz Churro Bites

  • Melt. In a small bowl melt your butter.
  • Toss. Add the crackers to a bowl and pour in the butter, sugar and cinnamon. Mix until everything is well combined and evenly coated. Pour onto a lined baking sheet.
  • Bake. Bake for 6 minutes, and then stir the mixture around, continue baking for 6 more minutes.
  • Cool. Take the pan from the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes. Mix everything around again and then let it cool completely.

Recipe Tips & Variations

  • If you have the Cinnadust seasoning blend or another Cinnamon and Sugar mix, you can definitely use that instead of measuring the cinnamon and sugar onto the crackers separately.
  • No Ritz Crackers? As you can see from the picture, I didn’t use actual Ritz brand crackers. I used the Trader Joe’s variety. Use whatever you have or can find. The Ritz peanut butter crackers are harder to find where I live. Or use oyster crackers and follow the same recipe. Use whatever you like!
  • Make sure to stir the mixture in the oven and as it cools. This helps redistribute the cinnamon and sugar mixture evenly over the crackers, so it doesn’t just pool on the baking sheet.
  • Store these churro bites in an airtight container for up to a week. No need to refrigerate.

Can I Make These In The Air Fryer

Yes, you can. You will want to cook at 350º for 7-8 minutes, stirring or shaking about halfway through. Pour onto a baking sheet to let them cool completely.

  1. The sweet, salty, and cinnamon flavors of these things are just amazing! I made a batch for the family. THEN I had to make another batch because I ate about half of them. LOL

  2. Just tried making the Ritz Churro Bites from your blog, and oh my, they are dangerously addictive! I love how the buttery crunch of the Ritz combines with that sweet cinnamon sugar.
