Tobins' Tastes: Chocolate Covered Rolo & Ritz Cracker Sandwiches

Monday, January 28, 2013

Chocolate Covered Rolo & Ritz Cracker Sandwiches


I guess you could say that I like to do things in an over the top kind of way. Minimalist is not a word anyone would ever use to describe me. Why make one cheese dip for a party when you could make four? Why have one pair of black shoes when I could have seven? Why order the first book of a series off of Amazon when I could just go ahead and order the whole boxed set?


Why use store bought marshmallows when you could make your own? Because you're insane and a glutton for punishment that's why. Can you tell I am just a little bit bitter about this?

Friday night I decided to make my own Valentines Day marshmallows. What, you don't spend your Friday nights with a candy thermometer and powdered gelatin? I used a recipe from my favorite cookbook authors {the Baked Series of Cookbooks} and added an absurd amount of heart shaped sprinkles.


But I didn't stop there. Even though my marshmallows started out cute and yummy looking, I wanted to do more. I wanted to take those labor intensive homemade marshmallows and use them to make ridiculously unnecessarily time consuming Valentines Day S'more Cupcakes complete with melted chocolate hearts on top, an open face s'more cupcake if you will.


Apparently something was wrong with my marshmallows (too many sprinkles maybe?) because they turned to liquidy mush/goo in their tupperware overnight and they ended up in the trash can. Huge homemade marshmallow fail.


And then I realized that maybe I just needed to keep it simple for the rest of the weekend so I didn't end up throwing my kitchenaid mixer in the trash can in a fit of frustrated baking rage. So I went about as simple as you can go. I melted Rolos in between Ritz crackers. And then I dipped them in melted chocolate. And then I covered them in sprinkles. And they were amazing. See what I mean about having a problem with simplicity?


I actually saw this idea on Pinterest last week  and it was so simple I didn't even pin it for future reference. After doing some research tonight to make sure I properly credited the genius who came up with this idea, I landed at Something Swanky. It makes perfect sense that Ashton who is one of the co-creators of Online BlogCon also created something as delicious as Rolo Stuffed Ritz Crackers.


Talk about the perfect balance of sweet, salty and chocolatey, these treats are addictive and bite sized and easy to make in any quantity at any time of day. And simple, because simple is better, right? Especially when it is dipped in chocolate and covered in sprinkles. Whoops.


Chocolate Covered Rolo & Ritz Sandwiches originally created by Something Swanky
  • Ritz Crackers
  • Rolo Candies
  • Melting Chocolates (I used Wilton's Dark Cocoa Melts)
  • Insane amounts of sprinkles
1.) On a lined baking sheet, place Ritz crakers salted side down and top with an unwrapped Rolo.

2.) Bake at 275 degrees for three minutes.

3.) When they come out of the oven, press another Ritz cracker on top of the Rolos salted side up. Press down enough to form a sandwich but not too hard that the melty Rolo squishes out.


4.) Let cool and firm up completely.

5.) Dip in melted chocolate and cover in sprinkles.

6.) Let them firm up (or not) and enjoy!




Make sure you stop by this week's Mealtime Monday and link up any amazing recipes you have been working on lately.

  39. These are so pretty, Kaylee. I love the contrast between the chocolate and the pretty sprinkles. And I'm totally digging the fact they have a melted and re-firmed rolo inside too. Not to mention the salty and sweet combo. I think you've got everything covered here. :) What's not to love?!

    Your dessert has been featured on Sugar & Slice Sunday. :) Hope to see you at the new Valentine's Day special link party.
