Snacking with Ritz

I’ve got three great Snacking with Ritz recipes for you today that will have the family jumping for joy 🙂

Snacking with Ritz

My boys come running through the door after school starving. Apparently they rush so fast through their lunch so they can have more time to play at recess. I put together some fun bite size snacks that the whole family will enjoy using Ritz Fresh Stack Crackers.

First up are these fun Pepperoni Pizza Stackers. I layered pepperoni, sliced cheese sticks and a dollop of pizza sauce over Ritz Fresh Stack Everything Crackers with onion, poppyseed, garlic and sea salt. The boys went nuts for these!

There’s just something about chocolate hazelnut spread that makes my whole family smile, especially my 9 year old. I made these fun simple snacks with him in mind because I knew his face would light up when he saw them on the table. I used the Ritz Fresh Stack Original variety and layered them with chocolate hazelnut spread and mini marshmallows. Simple and fun!

Peanut butter with apples and honey take me back to my childhood. My mom would slice up apples after school and have honeyed peanut butter ready for dipping. I layered Ritz Fresh Stack Whole Wheat Crackers with peanut butter, thin apple slices and drizzled honey. Such a perfect after school snack, all three of my boys wanted seconds 🙂
