You’ll fall in love with these Ritz Cracker Turtle Cookies! They’re sweet, salty, and no bake!
No food in the fridge. Piles of dirty laundry. I am exhausted from lack of sleep and possibly a few (dozenish) too many vacation cocktails.
Basically it’s like revisiting my early 20’s, only with achier bones and less patience for nonsense. I’m not just cut out for the real world, you guys. All I really need from this life is wine, a good book, and wifi that is good enough to stream Netflix without any buffering.
And cheese fries.
We are just returning from an 8 day cruise and it’s harsh. My house has no free soft serve, no towel animals, and when I look out the window all I see is the same tree that is there every day. There really should be some kind of gentler transition onto land. Like maybe the cruise people could send a masseuse and a soft serve machine home with us until we feel able to function properly on our own.
It is with this sad laziness in my heart that I share one of the simplest treats in the entire world.
Also the yummiest. You’ve got sweet, you’ve got salty, you’ve got chewy, and you’ve got chocolate.
Also? No bake. What else do you need from life (besides never ending soft serve and a masseuse)? Gosh, you’re high maintenance.
These are a really great treat for Thanksgiving or Christmas (right around the corner, people. Just give in) and make the perfect teacher/neighbor/I’m- sorry-I-never-answer-my-phone-when-you-call-and-only-respond-by-text-gift. Just nestle these in a Mason Jar and you’ve got some happy campers.
- 24 Ritz Crackers
- 11 oz caramel bits
- 1 Tablespoon water
- 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
- 16 oz melted almond bark
- Line a large baking sheet with wax paper. Place crackers on lined sheet, close together.
- In a microwave safe bowl, heat caramel bits and water, stopping to stir every 20 seconds until smooth. Let cool slightly, then spoon into the center of a cracker and immediately top with a sprinkle of pecans. Repeat process, reheating caramel if it gets too thick to spoon out.
- Allow caramel to cool on the crackers. Heat almond bark according to box directions, then drizzle or spoon over crackers. Let chocolate coating harden before serving.
You’ll love these!
Thanks so much for reading and have a great day!
