Crackers and Frosting, circa 2009

If you ever had graham crackers and frosting when you were a kid, then I'm sure you still love it. I had some left-over frosting the other day and decided to make us a snack. But I realized that graham with frosting is too much sweetness. So....I put it on Ritz Crackers instead and YUMMMM. Excellent Salty/Sweet combo.

Grab a box of these (love the retro packaging):
Spread 'em with your favorite frosting. Mine was left-over THIS.
And enjoy. Cream cheese sweetness with salt-brushed tops:
Casey and I thought we had a money making combo on our hands! Then we saw a pre-packaged version at the store. Ritz beat us to it. But homemade ones are definitely much better.

Mmmm, I am going to try this! I grew up on grahams and frosting, I though a little to sweet now that I am older, though my kids love them. This will be a treat!

We used to do this with saltines, but I'm sure Ritz is much better. Must try...
