– 2 (8-oz) packages 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 (around 48 crackers)


In a large mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, heavy cream, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract. Use an electric mixer to beat the ingredients together until smooth and well combined.
Place 1/3 of the Ritz crackers on bottom of greased 8×8 baking dish. Top with 1/3 cream cheese mixture. Top with 1/3 caramel sauce on top (just drizzle over). Repeat this for 2 more layers, until all ingredients are used.
Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate the cake for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight. This will allow the Ritz crackers to soften and the flavors to meld together.
Prior to serving, you can garnish the cake with additional salted caramel sauce, whipped cream, or crushed Ritz crackers, if desired.
Slice and serve the Salted Caramel Icebox Cake chilled. Enjoy!
