Ritz Cracker Appetizers
As a kid these crackers were always on my mom's grocery list along with pepperoni and cheese, it was one of their go-to appetizers, a non-recipe sort of. As soon as the cracker company started marketing themselves as a holiday food item, Ritz crackers recipes for appetizers started popping up all over. Appetizers like mozzarella with tomato and pesto, cucumber with dill dip and Ritz crackers topped with peanut butter & jelly are top recipes that come to mind.

There is just something about the buttery, perfectly salted ritz cracker that makes them great in all kinds of recipes. The versatility of RITZ Crackers allows you to be creative and think outside the box. That is what I did for these caramel chocolate ritz cracker sandwiches.

Gather Ingredients- RITZ Crackers, caramels, chocolate, sea salt & eggnog, only a few ingredients to this recipe. (If you don't like eggnog, use milk or cream)

Unwrap caramels, cut in half side to side not down the middle and place one piece on each cracker bottom.
Bake for 8 minutes or until caramels are soft and begun to melt.
Top caramels with another cracker. Press down lightly.
In separate microwave safe dishes- add reserved caramels with 1tbsp eggnog and chocolate chips with 3 tablespoon eggnog or dairy of choice.
Spoon melted chocolate and caramel into separate zip top or piping bags. Grab some fun and festive nonpareils.
