48 Ritz crackers
2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup salted caramel sauce, divided
Whipped cream, for garnish (optional)
Grease an 8×8-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer on medium until smooth.
Add heavy cream and vanilla, and beat until stiff peaks form about 3-5 minutes.
Arrange an even layer of crackers over the bottom of the baking dish. Top the crackers with 1/3 cream cheese mixture, then, drizzle 1/3 caramel sauce over the top.
Repeat with another layer of crackers, 1/3 cream cheese mixture, another 1/3 of the caramel sauce, another layer of crackers, and remaining cream cheese mixture.
Cover and chill in refrigerator until set, at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
Once chilled, cut into squares and top with additional whipped cream and caramel sauce if desired. Enjoy
