For the Salted Caramel Sauce:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (adjust to taste)

For the Icebox Cake:

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 sleeves of Ritz crackers (about 60 crackers)


Step 1: Prepare the Salted Caramel Sauce

  1. In a heavy saucepan, heat the granulated sugar over medium heat. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon or heatproof spatula until the sugar melts and turns into a deep amber color. Be cautious not to burn it.
  2. Add the unsalted butter and stir until it’s completely melted and incorporated into the caramelized sugar.
  3. Gradually pour in the heavy cream while stirring continuously. Be careful as it may bubble up.
  4. Stir in the sea salt, adjusting to your preferred level of saltiness. Keep in mind that the saltiness will balance the sweetness of the caramel.
  5. Allow the salted caramel sauce to cool, then transfer it to a jar or container.

Step 2: Whip the Cream

  1. In a mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.

Step 3: Assemble the Icebox Cake

  1. Spread a small amount of whipped cream on the bottom of a serving dish to create a base.
  2. Arrange a layer of Ritz crackers on top of the whipped cream.
  3. Drizzle a portion of the salted caramel sauce over the Ritz cracker layer.
  4. Spread a layer of whipped cream on top of the caramel.
  5. Repeat these layers until you’ve used up all the crackers. Finish with a layer of whipped cream on top.

Step 4: Chill and Serve

  1. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight. This allows the crackers to soften, creating a cake-like texture.
  2. Before serving, drizzle more salted caramel sauce over the top.
  3. Slice, serve, and enjoy the sweet and salty deliciousness of your Ritz Cracker Salted Caramel Icebox Cake.


  • You can make the salted caramel sauce in advance and store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use it.

  • This cake is best served chilled and eaten within a few days.
