Four Delicious Ways to Enjoy a Ritz Cracker

April 24, 2017 1 Comment

If you’re a mom, crackers are probably a staple in your home. I know for me, my pantry is always stocked with a few boxes of my kiddos favorite RITZ Crackers. They’re delicious all on their own, but we have loads of fun dreaming up different ways to top them off before enjoying them together. Never one to shy from a challenge, I created four to share with you in hopes to inspire your next event or family snack time.

Unicorn RITZ

Inspired by the recent #unicorntoast trend on Instagram, I took to creating colored cream cheese using fruits in a variety of colors. For red, I used strawberry jam mixed with cream cheese. For orange, apricots. For yellow, pineapple. And for purple, blueberries. This one is so easy and a great way for smaller kiddos to have fun helping you in the kitchen while learning colors.

RITZ Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

Enjoy miniature versions of your favorite dessert by topping your RITZ Crackers with a dollop of cream cheese and top it all off with some strawberry pie filling.

Jalapeño Popper Toppers

Enjoy zesty flavor by combining cream cheese with shredded Mexican cheese and top ping it off with a thin slice of jalapeño pepper.

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Popper RITZ

Take the classic Jalapeño Popper Topper one step further by wrapping it up in a slice of bacon and baking it until crispy. You’ll never eat one without the crispy addition of a RITZitz Ccracker after you try it this way.

Using RITZ Crackers and cream cheese, both sweet and savory toppers are easy to pull together and can help me with all of my entertaining needs. Save $1 on cream cheese (8 oz. or larger, selected varieties) when you buy 2 (two) boxes of RITZ Crackers (10.3 oz. or larger, selected varieties) at your local Albertson’s Companies store and you can recreate any of today’s recipes shared here or dream up your own!
