Sea Salt Turtle Caramel & Chocolate Ritz Crackers

Sea Salt Turtle (Caramel & Chocolate) Ritz CrackersCompensation was provided by Ritz Crackers.

We love entertaining for the holidays. We love creating new recipes and sharing some old favorites as well as we gather with family and friends during the season because really that is what the holidays are all about to us. Family and friends gathered together.

Ritz crackers have been a part of my life since I was kid. My husband loves them just as much as I do so every year, we make some sort of appetizer with our Ritz. You can check out ours from last year: Southern Shrimp Salad Ritz Toppers or Ham ‘n Swiss Spicy “Jamwiches” on Ritz.

As you can see, we love cooking with Ritz because Ritz crackers can make your holiday moments even richer. There are thousands of possibilities with Ritz. This year we combined sweet and savory with the slightly salty kick of cracker and came up with these Sea Salt Turtle Ritz Crackers. We brought them to a block party and they lasted less than 10 minutes. They really are THAT good. Try them out and let us know what you think.

  5. To make the Ritz Turtles:
  6. Dollop about 1 teaspoon of caramel on top of each cracker.  Be careful!  The caramel is hot!
  7. Place one toasted pecan on top of the caramel.  At this point allow the crackers to rest and cool.
  8. Once the caramel has set, drizzle melted semi sweet chocolate over each caramel Ritz Garnish with a little sea salt.
