How do you Dip Ritz Crackers in Chocolate?

Once you have spread the peanut butter on one cracker, top with another to sandwich the peanut butter. Simply stick a fork in the peanut butter and dip in the melted chocolate.

Once you have your ritz crackers are covered with chocolate then gently shake off an excessive chocolate. Place the chocolate covered ritz on a baking sheet line with parchment paper for the chocolate to harden.

Ingredients needed - chocolate chips, peanut butter, and ritz crackers

Ingredients:

How to Make Chocolate Covered Ritz Crackers: 

Ritz Crackers laid on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper with peanut butter spread on top of the crackers.

Gently Shake Crackers – Shake off any excess and place onto a lined baking sheet with wax paper-lined cookie sheet. Let chocolate harden at room temperature.

Variation Ideas:

  • Change the Filling – Instead of creamy peanut butter, use almond butter, crunchy peanut butter, Nutella or a chocolate spread.
  • Add Sprinkles – Add sprinkles for the holiday that you are celebrating.
  • Change the Chocolate – Use a dark chocolate or a white chocolate to covered the ritz crackers.
  • Candy Melts – Instead of melting chocolate chips, you can use candy melts or almond bark. You can also add food coloring to change the colors.
  • Sea Salt – Top the chocolate covered ritz with sea salt.
  • Drizzle – Drizzle the tops of the chocolate ritz cracker with white chocolate to give a fun design. You can also drizzle with caramel sauce
  • Half Dipped – If you don’t want to dip the entire cracker in the chocolate, then only dip half the cracker in the chocolate.

Can you Freeze Chocolate Covered Ritz?

Yes, you can freeze chocolate peanut butter ritz. Make sure you the chocolate is set before storing in an air tight freezer safe container. Line the chocolate covered ritz in the container separating the rows by wax paper.

This ensures that the chocolate covered ritz do not stick together. Once you are ready to serve bring them to room temperature.
