Two Ingredient Ritz Cracker Dessert

| | , , , ,

If ever there were a recipe holding the title of “The Worlds Easiest Recipe”, if you can even call this a recipe, this would be it! I have no idea who created this first, but I would have to wager a bet on a college kid somewhere. This would have been a middle of a study marathon session “I have an idea” type thing, that worked out!

Two Ingredient Ritz Cracker Dessert is salty, sweet, chocolate and caramel on a crunchy cracker. Ahh perfect!!

One of the best things about cooking or baking is being able to make food that satisfies a craving. Have you ever wandered through the grocery store looking for “the thing” that will make your taste buds happy? Honestly you could walk down every aisle and pick up things and put down things, and never find “it.”

Or do you ever play the game of “What sounds good to you?” Maybe you and your spouse or friend want something to eat or snack on and you can’t decide. So you then proceed to list every type of food, snack or genre you can think of, only to settle on grilled cheese and a PopTart, because you couldn’t think of anything that was just right?  This Two Ingredient Ritz Cracker Dessert is just the thing to satisfy all of your sweet tooth categories. Another super simple recipe I have that is my most popular, is 4 ingredient Butterscotch Cornflake Cookies. They are so simple and an absolute favorite on my blog.

Two Ingredient Ritz Cracker Dessert is ready to eat in 10 minutes, and REALLY, they only take two ingredients! Perfect for kids to make!! 

In fact this recipe is almost embarrassing to write about because it is so simple. You will want to use a baking sheet, and either put foil on it or parchment paper, just to help prevent sticking. The candy will melt when you cook it, not into a puddle, but you may find some on the baking sheet, so if we are going for ease, let’s just roll up the foil or parchment paper and toss it in the trash without having to wash the baking sheet.

This is how easy it is to make Two Ingredient Ritz Cracker Dessert. You will place one cracker down onto the parchment paper, in a single layer. Unwrap a Rolo Candy and place it on top each cracker. Then place the tray with the crackers topped with Rolo’s into a preheated oven and bake for 5 minutes. Once you remove the crackers from the oven, place the other cracker on top and gently push down, making a sandwich cookie with the chocolate and caramel candy. It will harden a bit as it cools and let it cool before taking a bite!
