Ranch Cheeze-Its Recipe ~ Perfect After School Snack

School is starting in this area and that means that I am on the hunt for easy after school snacks just like these Ranch Cheeze-Its.  We have started a snack box that I have filled with 100-150 calorie packs.  The boys know that they can grab one ready made treat bag and one piece of fruit.   These Ranch Cheeze-Its make for the perfect after school snack because they are clean to eat (we spend a lot of time in the car), bake up a large batch quickly and the boys can have about 20 crackers with their piece of fruit.
