Cookie Dough Ritz Crackers are a delightful combination of Ritz crackers, cookie dough, and chocolate.

Cookie dough is always a good thing. So are Ritz Crackers. When you put them together and dip them in chocolate?

If you’re like me you’re probably running around like a crazy headless chicken, trying to get everything done before Christmas. You with me? 4 weeks between Thanksgiving and Santa is just not enough time.

Christmas is in less than 4 days and in that time frame I need to make about 4 more recipes, finish wrapping gifts, go grocery shopping (twice), and clean my house. I thought it was supposed to be vacation? Oh wait, that’s what the husbands and the kids get.


If you need a last minute treat that will literally take you no time at all, you’re in the right place. Cookie Dough Ritz Crackers are going to be your BFF.

Is there anything better than (eggless) cookie dough? It’s like the best part of the cookie…but it won’t make you sick. #win

Like I said, these Cookie Dough Ritz Crackers come together in minutes. I simply made a smaller batch of my favorite cookie dough and I left out the eggs and the leavening. The result is a buttery, brown sugary, chocolaty cookie dough that you’ll be addicted to eating. But wait, I’m not done.

Take two Ritz crackers and make a cookie dough sandwich. Then dip the sandwiches in chocolate. Easy, right? A great gift for anyone…or yourself.

If you’re feeling lazy, like I was that day, you can drizzle some of the sandwiches with chocolate instead of dipping. (Remember, I have a handy tutorial for dipping candies without tears!) Or, if you’re really not into melting chocolate, get yourself some of those chocolate covered Ritz and just sandwich the cookie dough with that.

{Honestly, I’ve never bought those chocolate covered Ritz. Have you? I’ve almost done it 100 times but then I remember what it’s like to have a sleeve of Thin Mints in my house and I know I’ll just eat the whole box in 10 minutes.}

The crunchy salty crackers pair really well with the sweet cookie dough. These are the perfect gift and the perfect last minute party dessert.

I dare you to eat just one of these Cookie Dough Ritz Crackers.

Good luck with that.

Easy with just a few ingredients, these are done in such a short amount of time! Eggless chocolate chip cookie dough is sandwiched between two Ritz crackers and dipped in chocolate. The perfect gift!
Prep Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour
Yield 15 -20 sandwiches
Serving Size 1 sandwich


  • 4 tablespoons (57g) unsalted butter , softened
  • ½ cup (100g) packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • teaspoon salt (omit if using salted butter)
  • 1 cup (124g) all purpose flour
  • cup (57g) mini chocolate chips
  • 30-40 Ritz Crackers
  • 12 ounces candy melts or almond bark
  • Sprinkles optional


  • Use a stand or a hand mixer to cream together the butter and brown sugar. Mix in vanilla, salt, and flour, then stir in chocolate chips.
  • Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Scoop 1 tablespoon balls of cookie dough and sandwich them between two Ritz crackers, pressing gently to compact. Be careful so you don’t break the crackers.
  • Melt chocolate according to package directions. Dip each Ritz cracker sandwich in the chocolate, tapping off the excess, then placing back on the cookie sheet. Chill to set.
  • Optional: instead of dipping, you can place the chocolate in a ziploc baggie and cut off one tip, then pipe over the top of the sandwich. Also, you can do this same method with leftover chocolate to drizzle on top of the dipped sandwiches for decoration. Or, sprinkle the wet chocolate sandwiches with sprinkles for decoration.
  • See this tutorial for all of my dipping tips.

    1. The butter should be enough to make it combine but if it’s too dry you can add a tablespoon or so of milk to moisten.

  1. I only have salted butter. Would it be fine to use the salted butter if I omit the 1/8 tsp of additional salt? 🙂 I want to make them tonight and can’t go to the store!

  2. Do you know what I could make with white chocolate , peanut butter , ritz crackers , and pineapples? 

    1. If you totally cover them in chocolate, yes. If not, I would err on the side of no, so that the crackers don’t get soft. You can make the cookie dough ahead of time, even scoop the balls and freeze those, then assemble them when you need them!
