Cute Non-Pumpkin Ritz Jack O' Lantern Cookies

READY IN: 10mins
YIELD: 1 cookie


  • 2
    Ritz crackers
  • 1 12
    teaspoons peanut butter
  • 1 -2
    1 -2 ounce white chocolate or 1 -2 ounce orange candy melts
  • orange food coloring, and
  • red food coloring
  • food coloring (pens or decorator gel)
  • green sprinkles


  • Sandwich peanut butter between crackers.
  • Melt almond bark.
  • Add 1 drop each of red and yellow food coloring and stir.
  • *** NOTE!= Beware! I have done this in the past with no problems but the most recent batch of almond bark began seizing on me so I had to add solid shortening, melt, and stir. Each brand is different! I used the orange candy melts to avoid this next.
  • Dip crackers let dry on waxed paper-repeat for more.
  • Before they dry I draw 2 curved lines from so they look like this ( ) to make it resemble a pumpkin.
  • While still wet stick a green sprinkle (you could use anything else to make the stem too such as cut gumdrop).
  • Draw jack-o-lantern face on with gel or food coloring pen. Enjoy!
  • Great for the kids!
