CHOCOLATE CARAMEL RITZ CRACKER SANDWICHES — Melted Rolos are sandwiched between Ritz crackers, then dipped in chocolate in this quick and easy holiday treat.
If you need a last minute holiday treat–one that’s super quick and easy to make–these Chocolate Caramel Ritz Cracker Sandwiches are the answer!
And the best part is, everyone loves them. You’ve probably seen variations of this recipe online before. If not, you’ve got to try these unique Christmas treats.
Maybe you’re thinking crackers don’t really go with chocolate and caramel. I admit, it does sound a little strange, but trust me, it works! Especially if you love anything sweet and salty, like me.
Filling the crackers with peanut butter is another popular variation on this recipe–also delicious. But the combination of chocolate and caramel is my favorite.
Of course, it’s not a bad idea to make both versions. That way everybody is happy!
This is also a great recipe if you’ve got kids who want to help out in the kitchen. They especially love dipping the cookies in chocolate, and adding sprinkles.
Sprinkles are optional, of course, but I think they make these treats look a little more festive. Of course, this recipe can be made any time of year. Just switch up the sprinkles (or leave them off) to match the season.
I prefer using semi-sweet chocolate in this recipe, but dark, milk or white chocolate will all work. You could even opt for several kind of chocolate for dipping.
I just love time saving but tasty treats like this! Especially during the busy holiday season. And whenever I share these little sandwich cookies with friends and neighbors, they always get rave reviews.
As strange as the ingredient list may seem, believe me, you won’t be able to stop eating these Chocolate Caramel Ritz Cracker Sandwiches.
