Hawaii Furikake Animal Crackers

Have you heard about Hawaii Furikake Animal Crackers? Hawaii Furikake Chex Mix might be the “original” Hawaii furikake snack but in the last few years, the animal cracker version has become a very popular Hawaii snack! Similar concept, but with animal crackers in place of chex mix. Hawaii Furikake Animal Crackers are crunchy with a delicious salty-sweet balance. It makes a great snack for kids and adults. Also popular at bake sales, potlucks, and for school lunch treats. Enjoy, enjoy!

We make a syrup with butter, sugar, sea salt, corn syrup (can substitute other syrups), and oil. We drizzle the syrup over the animal crackers and toss, toss, toss. This gives the crackers a nice and sticky, sweet and salty coating.
Then we sprinkle the furikake (be generous with furikake!) over the crackers and gently mix so that the furikake lightly coats all the crackers. So nice.
Then bake, cool, and eat! That’s it! It’s easy and makes for an immensely satisfying snack.


Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.

Divide the animal crackers into 2-3 large rimmed sheet pans or roasting pans. Set aside.

Next, make the syrup! In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the sugar and salt. Stir until dissolved. Remove from heat, then add the light corn syrup and oil. Stir to mix well.

Drizzle the syrup evenly over the animal crackers. Stir gently to mix, try to lightly coat each of the crackers with a bit of the syrup.

Sprinkle the furikake all over the crackers. Stir so that the crackers are evenly coated with the furikake.

Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Let cool, stir every few minutes until completely cool (this helps to keep the animal crackers from sticking to each other as they cool).

Note: the crackers may seem moist and soft but will get hard as they cool. Store in an airtight container. Eat and enjoy!
