Easy 3 Ingredient Twix Ritz ohsweetbasil.com

This post is about potatoes. I know the title and recipe are for Twix Ritz, the 3 ingredient treat that the kids love to make and claim taste like a Twix bar, but it’s really about potatoes. Last night Cade and I were taking turns reading stories out of the Ensign and one was called A Potato for the Teacher.  Yes, we are that old couple that reads to each other at night, but we can talk about that another time. I’ll let you read the story yourself and maybe you’ll even take a moment to leave your thoughts, but I’ll tell you why this touched my heart so much.

As a young girl I watched my parents serve every chance they got. It didn’t have to be anything big, sometimes just a phone call or note, other times an entire Christmas provided for a sweet family in need. No matter what, my parents cared far more for the individual than anything else. I can’t tell you how many times we had people at dinner or staying at our house from our ward (our church is separated into wards, kind of like schools and districts). As an adult I’ve tried really hard to give as much as possible, but the more settled I get in life the more I feel like I have to do something special in order to give.

Sometimes I’ll get a thought to reach out to someone and I’ll immediately think of goodies, dinner, ding dong ditching, or some monetary gift. Often I’ll send a little text if someone pops into my mind, but in the end I’ve forgotten something important, it’s not what I think the person needs, it’s being whatever they need. I should be far more willing to actually stop by and visit with someone. That’s how life used to be. Why have we become a society that’s scared to be personal? And you have to admit it’s true. We text, wave, drop off goodies but we rarely stop in for good quality visits with people. And showing up, chatting and offering love is far more meaningful. I’m just saying, maybe it’s time to be more neighborly and watch out for each other in a more meaningful way.

Can Ritz Crackers Go Bad?

Snacks, such as pretzels and crackers, including Ritz crackers can be used up to 3 months past the expiration date.

Are Ritz Crackers Gluten Free?

Original Ritz crackers contain wheat flour and therefore are not gluten free.

Ritz does make a gluten free cracker that tastes as good as the original.

Are Ritz Crackers Dairy Free?

It may be surprising, but the buttery rich flavor in Ritz crackers does not come from butter.

Ritz crackers are completely dairy-free.

  • I made these for my neighbors, along with gingerbread boys. And then I made a batch for my son who was visiting for Christmas. He loved them, I loved them, and the neighbors loved them. Thank you so much for this easy, fun recipe and for the timely reminder that we need to take care of each other.

  • I made these last night. The caramel centers were so hard that we couldn’t even bite through them. Not a winner in my house 🙁

    • Hi Debra,

      The carmamel is only hard if it was a bad batch or if the processor of the caramel overcooked it or it was too old. Sorry for all the details, haha. We’ve made these so much that I’ve got it down when issues occur. Have you ever used Peter’s Caramel? It is hands down my favorite caramel brick for everything, including caramel apples. It’s so well made and never hard. When you melt it also make sure you only do so until just melted as it will over cook it. We prefer to heat in 20-30 second intervals, stirring between each time to ensure it never gets over heated and therefore cooked more. 🙂

  • Could not agree more with this… ” maybe it’s time to be more neighborly and watch out for each other in a more meaningful way.”

  • I’m glad that I’m not the only one who feels they need to be more present when giving to others. Thank you for reminding me that the important things in life aren’t actually ‘things’ 🙂

  • This post hit home, if you don’t have a computer, you won’t hear from me, I seem to have forgotten all about visiting people, thanks for the heads up.

    • I’m really trying hard to visit and write my letters versus email or texting. I think our society could benefit from going backwards in time a little. We are so worried about popping in on someon when really people need good visits just as much today as years ago.
