Recipe Overview

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 minutes (no-bake)
  • Total Time: 4 hours 20 minutes (including refrigeration)
  • Servings: 8-10

Ingredients

  • 2 (8-oz) packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup salted caramel sauce (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1.5 sleeves of Ritz crackers (approximately 48 crackers)

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Filling: In a large mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, heavy cream, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract. Using an electric mixer, beat the mixture until smooth and creamy, ensuring no lumps remain.
  2. Layer the Cake: Grease an 8×8 inch baking dish. Arrange a layer of Ritz crackers at the bottom, covering it completely. Spread a third of the cream cheese mixture evenly over the crackers. Drizzle a third of the salted caramel sauce on top. Repeat this process two more times, ending with caramel sauce on the top layer.
  3. Chill: Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or ideally overnight. This resting period allows the crackers to soften and the flavors to meld beautifully, creating a perfectly integrated texture.
  4. Garnish and Serve: Before serving, consider garnishing the cake with a drizzle of salted caramel sauce, a dollop of whipped cream, or a sprinkle of crushed Ritz crackers for an added crunch. Slice the cake and serve chilled.
