These Ritz Crackers S’mores are the ideal summer pairing for Sweet & Salty lovers!
I cannot believe this is the first s’more recipe I’ve posted all summer!! Where has the time gone!?
I’m not sure what’s going on in my life that is making time pass so quickly, but it’s alarming! It could be that Emma is getting older, and more of my day is now devoted to providing her with the time and energy she now demands. I suspect a lot of it is this blog, which has rapidly turned into a booming business needing about as much care and attention as my daughter.
Either way– I can’t remember the last time my days and weeks have flown by like this! I had every intention of posting tons and tons of S’mores and Ice Cream recipes. I suppose we’ll just have to see how much I can squeeze into the next couple of weeks. Because (for bloggers) Pumpkin Season is right around the corner! In fact, I have this Pumpkin Poke Cake in the refrigerator right now, all ready to re-photograph tomorrow in preparation for the pumpkin pinning frenzy soon to ensue :)
Ah. How I love Pumpkin Pinning Season ;) .
S’mores! I love, love, love S’mores. And when I saw these Ritz Cracker Ice Cream Sandwiches over at Two Peas and Their Pod, I just about died for some Ritz Cracker S’mores on the spot.
I literally shut the lap top, walked to the kitchen, and started making my Ritz all chocolatey. Like 5 seconds after I saw that post. “Li-trally.” (Any Rob Lowe fans out there?)
And ohmygosh. Such a good decision.
I’m a big fan of sweet and salty, and these little S’mores hit the spot!
These are so easy, I won’t even bother with a formal recipe. But I do want to tell you about two REALLY simple ways to coat your Ritz crackers in chocolate (you can figure out the rest, right?!)…
Either way you do it, you’ll want to have a sheet of parchment paper or a silicon baking mat at hand. And if you need to move these from the spot you make them to a different spot to cool, be sure to put the parchment or the baking mat on a cookie sheet for easy movement.
Method A) Melt chocolate in a small bowl (I used Candiquik melting chocolate). Spoon about a teaspoon of the chocolate onto the parchment paper. Place a Ritz cracker over the chocolate and gently press until the chocolate reaches the edges of the cracker. Repeat process for all crackers. Peel from lining when cooled (about 10 minutes) and use for S’mores or other yummy treats!
Method B) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place chocolate melting discs (like Wilton brand) on a lined (parchment or silicon) baking sheet, 2-3 inches apart. Place in oven for 1-2 minutes, until chocolate looks shiny and melted. Remove from oven and place a Ritz cracker over each disc of chocolate and gently press until chocolate reaches the edge of the crackers. Peel from lining when cooled (takes a little longer than Method A) and munch away!
