White chocolate covered peanut butter ritz are an easy no-bake treat. This dipped peanut butter ritz is the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert.
White Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Ritz
This is one of the easiest and most delicious kids snacks for Valentines day.
How to Make
Step 1: Start by taking your crackers and spreading a layer of peanut butter on one cracker.
Step 2: Sandwich together two crackers and dip in the red melted chocolate. Add sprinkles if you would like.
Step 3: Sit your chocolate dipped cracker on parchment or wax paper. Allow to fully dry.
Storing Dipped Covered Ritz
Once your crackers are fully hardened and cooled, place them in an airtight container. Then you can store it on the counter or place it in the fridge.
These cookies will last longer if stored in the refrigerator.
Can You Freeze Cookies
If you made a batch of no bake cracker cookies, go ahead and freeze some. I haven’t made them to freeze but I don’t see why it would be an issue.
Place in a proper container or freezer bag and store for 2-3 months.
When you are ready remove from the freezer and allow the cookies to thaw at room temperature.
Can I Use Milk Chocolate Instead of White
You are more than welcome to use milk chocolate to replace the white. The thing is you could drizzle red chocolate mixture over top or just use sprinkles.
Either way you are more than welcome to use milk, dark, or even semi sweet.
Tips For Making Dipped Ritz
- Shake off excess chocolate before placing on parchment or wax paper.
- Remake all you Cookies, then heat chocolate and dip.
- Leave space between cookies so they don’t stick.
- Add a teaspoon of shortening to chocolate as it hardens faster.
Those are just a few changes you can do for that sweet and salty no bake dessert.
Gift These for Valentine’s Day
Add these dipped cookies on sticks and hand out cookie suckers. Wrap in a cellophane style bag and tie ribbon on it.
Then you can gift to neighbors, co workers, childs teacher or even a treat for your child.
Do I Have to Use Ritz
You can use other types of crackers. Saltines, Townhouse, etc. We just love the buttery flavor of the Ritz cookies.
You can try out other brands and see what you like the best!
How Long Will These Cookies Last
You can store your cookies for around a week. The cookies will begin to get softer as time passes.
This is a great dessert to make in advance so the chocolate can set up.
