It’s summer. Time to bust out the non-baked goodies!

Ritz Krispy Treats

If you’re like me, you open up a box of Ritz crackers for some occasion and then it ends up squatting on a pantry shelf for a while. The good news is that just about anything is good if it’s pulverized and mixed with melted marshmallows. Who knew?!

These are especially good because you get that whole salty/sweet combination. A drizzle of chocolate and a touch of large grain salt really adds oomph.

This does produce a thin layer in a small casserole pan. If you want thick bars, double the recipe!

I think this would also work really well with Ritz Sandwich Crackers with Peanut Butter, with peanut butter added instead of Biscoff. You could also use Club or other kinds of crackers. There are a ton of options!

Ritz Krispy Treats

A quick non-bake treat that uses Ritz crackers for a delicious mix of sweet and salty.

  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups (1 bag) mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Biscoff spread or nut butter
  • 2 sleeves Ritz crackers, crushed (makes 3 cups)
  • optional:
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (to melt and drizzle)
  • pretzel or kosher salt

Prepare everything for quick mixing. Crush the crackers and measure the vanilla and Biscoff (or nut butter). Grease an 8x8 or 9x9 casserole pan.

In microwave or on stovetop, melt butter in a large bowl or pan. Add marshmallows and continue to heat on low; in microwave, heat for 25 seconds, stir, 25 more seconds, stir, until everything blends together.

Add the vanilla extract and Biscoff, then the crumbs. Stir until everything is well blended. Glop it into the prepared pan. Use a piece of wax paper and a glass or firm spatula to compress everything.

To add some topping for oomph, melt the chocolate and drizzle it over the treats. Immediately sprinkle some salt over it all.

Let set for an hour or so, until firm. Cut into small squares.

OM NOM NOM!
