The BEST Ritz Cracker Cookies
When it comes to snacking, there is something about the combination of peanut butter and chocolate that is so satisfying and delicious! The savory flavors of peanut butter combined with sweet, smooth chocolate and the crisp crunch of Ritz crackers is the ultimate treat.
These Chocolate Covered Ritz Cracker Cookies are not only fantastic for satisfying your sweet tooth, but a great addition to your Christmas cookie list. Because these cookies are no-bake, they’re the perfect for the busy holiday season. They’re fantastic for gifting, too!
Making these simple sandwich cookies is as simple as 1-2-3. I’ll break down the steps and show you exactly how to make these yummy Ritz Cracker Cookies.
Step 1: Start with peanut butter and Ritz Crackers
Begin spreading peanut butter between two crackers. You can use creamy or crunchy peanut butter – which ever you prefer. Use about a 1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter per cookie.
Step 2: Top with another cracker to make a sandwich.
Step 3: Dip the sandwich into the melted dipping (white and/or dark) chocolate.
For this I like to use CandiQuik, which can be found in most grocery store baker aisles. You can also use candy melts or melted chocolate chips, too!
Step 4: Top with chopped peanuts.
You can also top these with pretty Christmas sprinkles for extra holiday cheer!
No baking, no mixing – the ultimate easy, no-bake cookie recipe that is just as delicious as it is pretty! These simple Ritz Cracker Cookies are not only a great snack, they’re fantastic on your holiday cookie trays.
Make a big batch of these cookies, and box up for friends and neighbors for a sweet gift. They’re also great to take to teachers or co-workers for a nice way to show your appreciation!
I love making these Chocolate Dipped Ritz Cracker Cookies with both white and dark dipping chocolate. Both chocolates go wonderfully with the creamy, crunchy peanut butter, and the alternating colors look fantastic. They’re just as attractive as they are delicious! The peanut butter is definitely the star of this cookie! Once you bite into these sweet snacks, you’ll see just how amazing the flavors and textures are – absolutely delicious!
I’ve also made this type of cookie using OREO cookies. Check out my post over at Lil Luna where I’ve made Valentine’s Day OREO Pops.

Here’s the easy, delicious recipe for my Chocolate Covered Ritz Cracker Cookies:
- 3/4 c. peanut butter, creamy or crunchy
- 24 Ritz crackers
- 1/2 c. dry roasted peanuts, roughly chopped
- white and/or dark dipping chocolate (about 8 oz. each)
- Gather your ingredients, and place a large sheet of waxed paper on your flat work surface. Chop the peanuts, and melt the dipping chocolate(s) according to package directions.
- On a cracker, spread a tablespoon of the peanut butter onto the cracker. Top with a second cracker to make a sandwich. Dip the sandwich into the melted dipping chocolate, making sure to coat the entire surface, including sides and top. Transfer cookie to the waxed paper. While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle the tops of the cookies with chopped peanuts, about 1-2 tsp.
- Let the chocolate cool and set, usually takes about 15-30 minutes. Enjoy right away, or store in an airtight container. These also freeze well to be enjoyed later.
Instead of peanuts, feel free to sprinkle seasonal sprinkles on top of the cookies. You can easily find seasonal sprinkles for Christmas, Valetine's Day, Easter, July 4th and Halloween.
