Toffee Ritz Bars
These Toffee Ritz Bars only have four ingredients and come together in a few minutes. This easy recipe is chewy, sweet, and chocolatey!
Sometimes, the simplest things in life are the best.
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.
I 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!Print

Rachael=Made these last weekend for our Hanukkah family party-Everyone loved them-they are sooo good and so easy to make. Harvey and I gained 2 lbs each from finishing the leftovers.
keep up the good work
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!!!
Hi Linda, I updated the recipe to include the size of the box that I used. Hope that helps!
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 ;)
What is the asterisk for after the Heath toffee bits??? It’s driving me crazy! haha. I’m making this tonight, yay!
Haha, I wish I could tell you Deann! That is annoying…fixing that ASAP! Hope you love the bars, despite the annoying asterisk :)
I made these the other day. They were so easy to make. I wasn’t over fond of the flavour initially as they seemed bland, but after they had sat in the fridge for 24hrs they were quite addicting. I’m thinking I’ll definitely make them again, but I’ll add 1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut to the mix just to give them that extra flavour boost. Besides coconut, caramel and chocolate all in one dessert just sounds nummy. :)
Coconut would definitely be a delicious addition to these bars, Lynnette! I’m glad you liked them. Thanks for commenting! :)
