My mom has been making these forever, as long as I can remember around the holidays. And, they are a crowd favorite!
For me, these fall between a cookie and a candy. They are Ritz crackers, made into cracker sandwiches with peanut butter in the middle, and then dipped in white chocolate. It sounds so simple (and it is), but these are sooooo good. Also, they make great gifts to package up in a clear gift jar, tie a festive bow around and give for gifts.
The hardest part of this entire recipe is how to get the chocolate to melt and stay melted while you dip all of the crackers. My secret is this handy little helper. Before I get started, I melt the chocolate in this mini crock and it stays melted the entire time I’m working. Then, there’s no need to rush through making the cookies because you’re worried the chocolate is going to harden. (PS: This isn’t just a one-time use purchase. I use this mini crock all the time for different things — cooking recipes like this, but also for dips and for parties!)

Also, another trick my mom taught me is to make a swirlon top of the crackers in the white chocolate with a fork. It gives them a little extra pizazz, especially if you’re giving them as a gift.
Peanut Butter Ritz Dipped in Chocolate Recipe
- 2 sleeves Ritz Crackers
- 20 ounce bag white almond bark
- Peanut butter
- In a mini crock pot, melt 4 square blocks almond bark (about half the bark).
- While the almond bark is melting, spread peanut butter on a cracker and then top with another cracker to make a sandwich. Repeat until all crackers are used.
- Drop one of the sandwich crackers into the melted almond bark. With a fork, flip the cracker sandwich over until it is completely covered with the white chocolate.
- With fork, remove cracker sandwich from chocolate and place on a non-stick baking mat to harden.
