Toffee Ritz Bars

Sometimes, the simplest things in life are the best.

Sure, I’m never one to deny myself the luxurious, complicated pleasures of life, but I only try to treasure each simple treasure.

A bite of a chocolate chip cookie, sitting on the beach staring at the lapping waves, reveling in the sunshine, the first sip of rich hot chocolate, a cuddle session with my big, fluffy dog – all of them simple, but wonderful things that everyone should remember to treasure. Now being added to that list are Toffee Ritz Bars. They have four ingredients, come together in about 2 minutes, and are simply, wonderfully delicious.

Side note: Can we notice that three of things on my list of simple pleasures involve chocolate? Not sorry.

Toffee Ritz Bars | Bakerita.comI made these bars right after my friend Ally tore her ACL and was laying on the couch, unable to do much of anything (though she’s a much better sport about it than I would be).

And when friends of mine need cheering up, I make them things with chocolate. Because chocolate can make anyone feel better (unless your allergic, in which case, I am so so sorry).

These bars are rich, but they are such a delicious simple pleasure. Make them for someone you love, someone who needs a pick-me-up, or just for yourself. They’re sure to put a smile on your face, and let’s be honest – around the holidays, who isn’t grateful for a quick, easy dessert? That’s just what these are. Share with those you love (or don’t), and enjoy!

  2. Would it be possible to get a count or weight on the crackers? Packaging changes and it helps if there is an amount…particularly if you used a different brand or the company changed the package size. Looks like a great and easy one!!!

  3. Just came out of the oven. I immediately took a bite. Yum! Thanks for this super and quick dessert. P.S. Pounding the crackers was therapeutic after a long work week ;)

  4. What is the asterisk for after the Heath toffee bits??? It’s driving me crazy! haha. I’m making this tonight, yay!


  1. […] 15. Toffee Ritz Bars These bars might sound fancy, but they are made from two readily available items: Ritz crackers and Heath toffee bits. You can get the Heath Toffee already pre crunched up in a bag, so you don’t have to worry about finding the candy bar and then crunching it up. They’ve already done the hard work for you, so all this involves is mixing up the crackers with the toffee, and putting it into bar form. The result is you get a salty and buttery flavor from the crackers, and also a buttery and chocolatey coffee flavor from the Heath bar bits. Put them in these Christmas gift bags for a nice gift.
