Have you ever wondered what's in those ritz cracker cookies?  You know the chocolate ones with the peanut butter?  Many are surprised at how easy they are and, yup, just 3 ingredients!  They make a simple holiday treat or the perfect sneaky treat to keep in the freezer for a midnight snack!


Units Scale
  • 2 1/2 Sleeves Butter Ritz Crackers
  • 1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 3/4 of a (24 oz)package Chocolate Almond Bark
  • 1/3 cup each Red and Green Candy Melts ((optional))


  1. Pour the dark chocolate and the milk chocolate into a melting pot and turn on to melt the chocolate while you prepare the crackers.
  2. Next make the peanut butter crackers peanut butter sandwich style.
  3. Spread a generous amount of creamy peanut butter on one cracker and place another cracker on the top of the peanut butter.
  4. Place each sandwich cookie on a small cookie sheet. Stacking them up is fine.
  5. Put the ritz cracker sandwiches in the freezer for at least 30 minutes before dipping them in the melted chocolate. 
  6. For easy dipping I use a sturdy plastic fork and break out the center prongs.
  7. Dip each peanut butter ritz in the melted chocolate and let the excess chocolate drip off.  
  8. Place the dipped crackers on a sheet of wax paper or parchment paper to cool and harden. 
  9. If you want a more festive look then melt some red and/or green candy melts and drizzle them over the cooled chocolate dipped peanut butter ritz.
  10. White chocolate could be drizzled in place of colored candy melts.
  11. Store in an airtight container at room temperature, in the fridge or in the freezer. Any way you choose is fine!


  • These freeze extremely well and keep in the freezer for several months.
