It is finally starting to feel like spring around here. Days are getting longer, birds are chirping, sun is shining… and to top it off, I am finally back home for good after completing a 6-month work contract in a town 2 hours away. Meaning, I can see my hubby all week long (not just on weekends) and I can start hosting some get-togethers at our place. And what takes the stress out of planning and hosting the perfect party? Four quick and easy RITZ Crackers recipes.

My classic, go-to snack has always been RITZ Crackers paired with cream cheese. I pretty much lived on this stuff as a bedtime snack when I was a child. But now, you can say that a remixed version of this snack exists in my life. By remix, I mean the addition of extra ingredients to bring a bit more life into this snack. I’m talking ingredients such as cheddar cheese, jalapeño peppers, smoked salmon, arugula, nutella, and strawberries.

I know, I know, the curiosity and anticipation is too much. Wait no longer, here are my top four sweet and savory RITZ Cracker recipes.

The Crackers:

  1. Smoked Salmon, Cucumber and Cream Cheese Bites
  2. Jalapeño Popper Topper

The best part of all? Each of these bites takes about 5 minutes to put together (with the exception of the nutella and peanut butter explosion recipe which may take a few extra minutes to pipe out the peanut butter). Basically, with 20 minutes, a few boxes of RITZ Crackers, cream cheese and a few extra ingredients (all of which you can pick up at your local Safeway), you are ready to host all the parties that your heart desires!
