Ritz Crackers

Ritz Crackers

Red Ritz box
sleeves of buttery crackers
salty on top
What can I create?
 thick peanut butter
melted chocolate
gooey marshmallow

My dad
his "Grampa"
Ritz crackers
sometimes stale
peanut butter, always 
lay the salt side in
make a dozen the night before
in the fridge next to the cucumber and the hunk of cheese
no time to fuss on the boat
there are fish to haul in.

My son
Declan, 11 years old
Ritz crackers
smeared with Nutella
after school
before soccer
before basketball
"Mom, can I eat them all?"
licks the salt off his fingers
runs off to play.

s'mores made with ritz crackers, marshmallows, chocolate and peanut butter

Ritz Cracker S'mores
(make as many as you want, 6 for me)

6 Ritz crackers
6 teaspoons peanut butter
24 chocolate chips
3 marshmallows

Spread 1 teaspoon of peanut butter on each cracker.  Place 4 chocolate chips onto peanut butter on each cracker.  Cut marshmallows in half horizontally with scissors.  Place 1/2 marshmallow on peanut butter and chocolate chips, sticky side down.  Line up crackers on a cookie sheet.  Preheat broiler to high.  Toast marshmallows to golden brown, 1-2 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before shoving them in your mouth.
