Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Crackers Recipe
These are the absolute best Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz cracker delights you will ever try! They have been a huge hit at every party I’ve hosted with these. You are not going to find an easier recipe either. All you need is a microwave to melt the chocolate almond bark too. Usually when I make these people say they look way to professional to be “homemade.” They insist they taste too good and must be store bought.
UPDATE: I just had a friend tell me she also makes hers with Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Fluff to make it a chocolate covered cracker fluffernutter! What a clever idea! Thanks Katy for sharing!!
- Peanut Butter
- Ritz Crackers
- Chocolate Almond Bark (or Vanilla, whichever you prefer)
- Wax Paper (Parchment Paper)
- Marshmallow Fluff (optional)
Here’s how you make these tasty treats:
Start by spreading peanut butter between two crackers. I use Ritz crackers because I love the buttery flavor. The salt on the top of the cracker really intensifies the chocolate flavor.
Next, melt the chocolate almond bark in a microwave safe bowl. Follow the directions on the package because each package is different. I usually melt about 3 to 4 squares in 30 seconds increments until it’s fully melted. After 30 seconds I try mixing the almond bark to see if it’s fully melted. Be careful though, you don’t want to burn the chocolate.
Finally you will use a fork and dip the peanut butter filled crackers in the chocolate. Holding the cracker on a fork, slightly shake off an excess chocolate by taping the fork on the edge of the bowl while holding the cracker on the fork. This creates a smooth top layer too. Placed the chocolate dipped cracker on a piece of wax paper to set. This process will only take about 30 minutes or less.
