Made with sweet vanilla bean gelato sandwiched between RITZ Crackers, these mini sandwiches are dipped in chocolate and chopped hazelnuts, then frozen for a perfect sweet treat with game day festivities. This RITZ recipe is inspired by Screme Gelato Bar in NYC (with the best gelato!).

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Lay out 3 or 4 RITZ Crackers, salted side down, on a parchment-line baking sheet. Quickly scoop 1 tablespoon gelato onto each cracker. Top each with a RITZ cracker. Press down lightly to flatten gelato to extend to cracker edges; wipe off excess and immediately place in the freezer until frozen solid, about 3 hours. Repeat with remaining crackers and gelato to make 25 sandwiches.

  • When the sandwiches are frozen, melt chocolate on top of a double boiler.

  • In small batches and working quickly, dip sandwiches halfway into melted chocolate. Immediately dip chocolate half into chopped nuts. Place sandwiches back into the freezer. Freeze 2 to 3 hours to set.

Tips

Note: this recipe takes several hours to assemble and freeze as you need time to make sure your sandwiches are frozen properly. When working with gelato or ice cream, work with a few sandwiches at a time for best results.

Tip:

This recipe can be created ahead of time, preferably the day before game-day.

Prepare as directed using your favorite flavor of gelato. We also like salted caramel!
