These Ritz Peanut Butter Cookies are the perfect combination of sweet and salty! All you need are three ingredients and some laughter!
Ritz Peanut Butter Cookies
I used to make these Ritz Peanut Butter Cookies years and years ago with my Grandma. Now, I get to make them with my daughter. They are so fast and easy to make that there are no excuses not to make them. Actually, your kids can make them for YOU! I love how they are the perfect combination of sweet and salty to satisfy my cravings! Grandma would make these for us and always have a selection of sweet treats for our evening card games. She was all about her cards and taught me a lot about problem solving, luck, and deductive reasoning.
Smear some peanut butter on the Ritz crackers. No need to be neat about it. Place them in the freezer for 15 minutes while you lick the peanut butter off the knife and finger tips.
Flip the peanut butter side down into the melted chocolate and carefully lift out and place it on the wax paper to harden. This should take mere seconds. This is perfect for the kiddos to do – their fingers will get covered in chocolate and the’ll love it!
FYI – I love my CorningWear bowls to melt my chocolates. They are the right height and width to dip pops and truffles – and cookies. It also has a lid so you can cover it up and keep the leftover chocolate for another project.
Once all the cookies are covered in chocolate, you’re done! Now go wash the kids hands and put these cookies on a plate to enjoy. You can also put them in a baggie and place them in the freezer! (That’s my favorite way to enjoy them!)
Just as promised 🙂
- 1 sleeve Ritz Crackers
- Peanut Butter
- 1 bag chocolate chips
- Optional - peanut chips, chocolate sprinkles
- Cover the Ritz cracker in peanut butter, place them on a cookie sheet and place them into the fridge. Melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl with a wide top.
- Dip the peanut butter side of the cracker into the chocolate. Carefully lift out of the chocolate and place onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
- Once the chocolate is dry, store in an airtight container in the fridge.
I store my finished cookies in the freezer and enjoy them frozen too!
