RITZ Hazelnut Gelato Sandwich

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"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!)."

  1. 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.
  2. When the sandwiches are frozen, melt chocolate on top of a double boiler.
  3. 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.


  • 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!

Sweet, salty, crunchy, and creamy - all in one bite! Delicious . . . nuff said.

oh wow. YUM!!! The hardest part about this recipe is the waiting. I could only find sea salt caramel gelato and the combo was nothing short of amazing! Great recipe!

This was one of the best foods I have ever ate. The rich chocolate melted in my mouth. Sweet and slightly salty, it was great.

These were so yummy! I had never tried gelato before and I loved it especially sandwiched between Ritz crackers and dipped in chocolate. My daughter was not a fan of the semi sweet chocolate so ...

FANTASTIC! These are so easy, and my kids can't wait for their special desserts tonight. Plus, one is the perfect portion! I used a stracciatella (Italian chocolate chip) gelato that I had in...

Everyone loved this little dessert at our SuperBowl watch party. So easy to make, and the crackers didn't get soft at all...great blend of sweet and salty!
