We only make these chocolate dipped crackers when we do our Cookie Exchange with the family and for good reason. They are super yummy and I am not sure my waistline would agree with me eating them all year round.
Eric’s family is how I got introduced to these and I cannot believe I had never had them. These chocolate dipped peanut butter Ritz easily became one of my favorite desserts to eat.
Every year we plan a day around Christmas and do a cookie exchange. Every family makes a different treat to bring and then we bake sugar cookies and decorate them.
After we decorate all the cookies we divide everything up so each family has a bunch of treats to take home. We opted to start making the chocolate dipped peanut butter crackers and I have mastered how to make them pretty quickly.
You could just buy already made peanut butter cracker sandwiches to dip in chocolate but I will tell you right now, it’s just not the same. If you make them at home and stuff the peanut butter yourself it makes a huge difference.
You can add as much or as little peanut butter as you would like. I like somewhere in between too much but not bursting out the side, OK maybe just a little. Remember you still have to dip them in chocolate and the peanut butter will melt.
Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Crackers – Perfect treat for any chocolate peanut butter lover
To make this an easy as possible treat to make, I have learned how to put together the peanut butter crackers pretty fast. First line a baking sheet with wax/parchment paper. Then line your crackers top side down all along the baking sheet.
Fill a piping bag with creamy peanut butter and cut the tip off so the peanut butter comes out easily. If you are having trouble squeezing the peanut butter out then make your hole a little bigger.
Peanut butter is pretty thick so your hole should be about an inch up from the piping tip. Hold each cracker as you pipe desired amount of peanut butter onto cracker.
Once you filled each cracker with peanut butter then you can take another cracker and add it to the top making a peanut butter cracker sandwich.
To get your chocolate melting add a metal or stainless steel bowl to the top of a pot filled about halfway with water. Drop your melting chocolates into the bowl and bring the water to a light boil then reduce heat. The best chocolate to use for melting is the chocolate almond bark.
This year I got all my Chocolate Bark from Aldi and I plan to every year now. It came already pre-cut into squares so I LOVED not having to break apart those huge chocolate chunks.
Stir the chocolates every few minutes until all melted and creamy. Using tongs to dip each Peanut Butter Cracker into the chocolate, turning to make sure all sides are coated.
After dipping place cracker back on wax paper and repeat until all crackers are done.If you would like to add sprinkles do so while chocolate is still melted so they will stick and not roll off.
If you would like to make white chocolate as well clean out bowl or get a new bowl and repeat the above process. The amount of crackers and peanut butter will depend on the amount you would like to make.
Once finished place the baking sheet in the fridge so the chocolate can set faster or you can leave out until it is hard. Store in an air tight container for up to one week. Bonus – Place them in the freezer for frozen treats then they are good for up to 6 months.
