Ideas/recipes for using up (really) hard crackers

Alright, so here’s the story:
I absolutely hate waste and will go to great lengths to avoid throwing out a product (which, admittedly, drives some of my family members crazy). A while back I spotted San-J’s Tamari Brown Rice crackers in the store and bought them on complete impulse and against all logic (the package says ‘Bold Crunch’ and they aren’t kidding. I have always had sensitive teeth and do not like crunchy things…it was like gnawing on a rock).

However, the overall flavor is okay, so I would like to use them up. The ingredients are: Brown Rice, Rice Flour, San-J Tamari Soy Sauce (Water, Soybeans, Salt, Alcohol) and Sweet Potato Starch. The soy sauce flavor is there, but subtle enough that I think it could bend to sweet preparations as well as savory if need be.

Obviously something with liquid/moisture to soften them for my preferences. Initial brainstorming on my part comes up with:

Icebox cake (yeah it sounds crazy and I’m not sure what flavors would go right, but it’ll certainly solve the crunch issue)
In meatloaf or an egg casserole (let them to soften in the mix for a bit before cooking)

Any ideas for recipes?/Preparations?
