"These things have been made by my family since before I can remember. Been made by my sibs and I since we were under age 4. Very good family tradition that we've made almost every year for Christmas and sometimes other holidays. Oh, one thing, you CAN NOT sub the generic excuses for Ritz crackers.....they will not be as crunchy, buttery, or good!"
Serving Size: 1 (13 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 20
"This was awesome and easy. I didn't have any bark so I melted a bag of Hersey's milk chocolate chips and dipped into it. I stuck the Ritz cookie in the freezer to make sure it set properly and it was PERFECT! Thanks for sharing elizagirl!"
"Perfect! I found this recipe in Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove Cookbook. She calls it Jack Griffin's Christmas Cookies and says there are no exact amounts--just get a jar of peanut butter, a box of Ritz crackers, a bag of chocolate chips, and the candies of your choice to top (i.e., holiday sprinkles at Christmas or Reese's Pieces at Halloween). She says to store them in the refrigerator. I dipped both sides of the Ritz cracker in peanut butter and stuck them together. This is so easy to make and with ingredients you have on hand that it's a slightly dangerous recipe. Yum! Thanks for posting elizagirl!"
"My family loves the combination of peanut butter and chocolate so these were a big hit. Very easy to make and absolutely yummy!!! Thanks for sharing, TNS! **Made for the P-A-R-T-Y Cooking Event**"
"Made using honey roasted peanutbutter! Yummy! Very easy also. Have made these since my teenage years!Quick little treat. Teaching my kids to make these now!:)"
"Loved these. They were so easy to make and my family really liked them. Made some for home and some for Christmas baskets. Will be making them again."
"These are amazing little cookies!! I used different flavored peanut butter from the PB Company and they are so special tasting with very little effort. Also change up the flavor using different flavored chocolate chips, like raspberry for a peanut butter and jelly taste."
"Awesome! These are delicious, pretty much addictive... They are very pretty with colored sprinkles for any occasion."
"These cookies are so yummy and addicting! They were so easy to make too. I couldn't find chocolate bark so I just used melted chocolate chips and they came out great. I loved the sweet and salty of it, kinda like a chocolate covered pretzel :) Thanks for a great recipe! Made this for Spring PAC 2008."
"I made these as part of our "Super Bowl" meal on 2/2/08.I didn't have enough of the milk chocolate bark so,I mixed a little bit of white chocolate with it and it worked just fine.I didn't make a full recipe,since there was only my SO and myself.I will make this again,but not to often( as I am afraid that they could be very very habit forming :))Thanks for posting,and "Keep Smiling :)""
"These things are so tasty and easy to make! I used nutella instead of peanut butter for one batch for a change and they tasted great as well. Excellent recipe to use up the leftover holiday crackers from parties."
"I made these for Christmas and they are so good. The spoon and fork idea really helped. My husband thought they were store bought. Thank you!"
"When I was a little girl, I loved these and thought they must be hard to make since we only ever had them at Christmas. I was thrilled to discover how easy these are! They disappear like mad wherever you take them. They are tasty and pretty enough to take to a party, yet they only take minutes to make. I usually use reduced fat Ritz and reduced fat peanut butter. To make them their prettiest, I use a spoon to drench them in the chocolate and a 3 tined fork slid underneath of them to remove them, tapping the fork on the side of the double boiler to remove excess chocolate. I just don't think they look very nice when they are globby or have extra chocolate hanging off the side. Although I have learned just how easy they are, we only make these treats at Christmas, because that makes them even more special!"
"I made this for my peanut butter-loving DS and his fiance, next time I make these I will mix in a 2-3 tablespoons vanilla icing or unwhipped whipping cream to make the PB filling more creamy, thanks for sharing, this was enjoyed!...Kitten:)"
"have made this many yrs. for grandkids,simple but delicious."
