fourth of july ritz sprinkle treat recipe

So I know I’m like way late in posting this recipe, but between motherhood, school, school, and revamping my blog, can you blame me?? And anyway, you can totally make these for any holiday/event. Just change the color of the sprinkles to whatever look you’re going for!


I made these for the Fourth of July and they were a hit. I snuck a few in before our parties to make sure, you know, that they were still okay and all. ;) They. Are. So. Yummy. Just warning you in advance - you can’t have just one.


And with only three ingredients, it’s a must when you’re in a pinch for a quick, easy, and fun dessert.


What You Need
  • - a box of Ritz crackers
  • - white melting chocolate or white chocolate chips
  • - sprinkles

Directions

  1. Start by unwrapping your Ritz crackers and place them on a plate so they are not overlapping. When you finish with the white chocolate and sprinkles, you’ll want them to lay until they harden without touching each other. Having the plates out in advance makes it so much easier so you’re not running around trying to find a clean plate at the last minute.
  2. When you’ve finished, start melting the white chocolate. You can use whatever method you prefer. A double broiler would come in super handy because the chocolate needs to stay melted throughout the whole process. White chocolate hardens extremely quickly, which is great until you’re trying to stick 25 or so crackers in the same batch. I don’t have a double broiler (hint hint, hubby), so I take a small pot and fill it with water, then I take another pot the same size or bigger and place it on top with the chocolate in it. I let the water come to a boil and stir the chocolate until it’s smooth. *hint, if you’re using white chocolate chips, adding a splash of milk helps with a creamier and smoother consistency.*
  3. When your white chocolate is as smooth as a baby’s butt, start dippin’ your crackers. I went about half way with each cracker.
  4. Immediately head to your sprinkle station. I dumped mine in a bowl and then laid the cracker in. You could also literally “sprinkle” them on the cracker.
  5. Lay them out to harden on the plates we talked about earlier. They should harden fairly quickly, but you’ll know when they are done, you know, when they are hard.
  6. Enjoy, but remember I forewarned you that they are addictive.
