The Best Ritz Cookies Dessert

These cookies bring in so many great flavors that work so well together! Usually Ritz Cracker cookies will have creamy peanut butter in them, but these do not! Instead of using peanut butter, I used cookie dough and then covered the whole things in chocolate from chocolate candy melts. It’s a safe to eat, edible cookie dough – no egg!

You can dip the entire cookie in chocolate or just do a drizzle depending on how much time (and patience) you have. I love making these for Christmas because of how simple they are! If you have a busy schedule, but want something to make–these are for you!

Ingredients Needed

  • Unsalted Butter: Needs to be softened – you can also use salted butter
  • Brown Sugar: Don’t forget to pack your brown sugar!
  • Vanilla Extract
  • All Purpose Flour – if you’re worried about eating raw flour you can bake it to pasteurize it.
  • Mini Chocolate Chips – I like the mini chips because they sandwich with the crackers better.
  • Ritz Crackers: The ingredient that holds the whole recipe together!
  • Melting Chocolate: Chocolate almond bark or white chocolate or a combination.

How to make Ritz Cracker Cookies

  • Use a stand or a hand mixer with a large bowl to cream together the butter and brown sugar. Mix in vanilla extract, salt, and flour, then stir in chocolate chips.
  • Line a cookie sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. Scoop 1 tablespoon balls of cookie dough and make sandwich cookies with two Ritz crackers, pressing gently to compact. Be careful so you don’t break the crackers. Place on baking sheet.
  • Melt chocolate according to package directions. Dip each Ritz cracker sandwich in the chocolate, tapping off the excess chocolate, 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.

  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!
