Hunting Camp Dessert (From an Outdoor Writer’s Wife)

When I’m at my hunting camp I usually eat chili or soup my wife Drema has prepared. When I arrive I just stick it in the fridge and heat it up when hungry. She takes good care of me but where my pallet suffers at hunting camp is in the dessert area. I can’t cook and too much Little Debbie can be a bad thing.

Thanks to Ritz crackers and their Facebook competition, Drema has created the perfect hunting camp dessert. She calls them Ritz Sliptz because they taste like a banana split. She makes them, freezes them and I can take them to camp in the cooler. After a bowl of Drema’s chilli I can grab a few Ritz Splitz from the freezer and pretend I’m at Dairy Queen.

Cinnamon Ritz cracker, vanilla pudding, banana, whipped cream and strawberry and chocolate syrup...A sugar rush that will hit you like a heartache!

Here is the cool part. Drema entered her Ritz Splitz recipe in the Ritz Facebook competition. If she wins she gets $ 20,000!!! Trust me, with what she gets from me – living off gunwriter pay – and has to put up with – being married to an outdoor writer – she deserves it!

The rules read kind of like the tax code so who knows who will finally win but you can vote on-line. Help a hillbilly out and Give Drema’s Ritz Splitz 5 stars because if I don’t quite sampling the recipe, none of my hunting clothes will fit anymore.

To vote, go HERE, select DESSERTS and type in “RITZ SPLITZ”
