Ritz Cracker Sweet & Savory

Growing up I remember loving RITZ Crackers, they are buttery soft, melt in your mouth crackers...and they were my favorite to snack on! I kind of forgot about them, until I got married to Colten. He loves snack food, and we seem to always have these crackers in our house. I have been getting creative with these crackers, and came up with some delicious Sweet & Savory recipes using them. These recipes are perfect whether you're craving a simple but delicious snack, or you're hosting a party with friends!

 

These RITZ Cracker Chocolate Coconut crackers are my favorite easy snack. Actually....I can’t choose a favorite. But they are for sure ones I make the most. The chocolate that you dip the RITZ Crackers in is a perfect balance of milk chocolate with the salt from the crackers. I prefer Guittard's milk chocolate chips, because they are sooo dang good, and really add to the decadence of this super simple recipe.

I hosted a party the other day with some friends, and made my RITZ Chocolate Coconut crackers, along with RITZ Cracker Pepper Jelly Appetizer! I love making both the sweet and savory recipes using RITZ Crackers! It makes for an easy grocery haul, and I can quickly make both recipes!! I headed to my local Albertsons to pick up a family pack of RITZ Crackers, and used them for both recipes! Learn more about RITZ Crackers HERE.
