Ritz Cracker Cookies - No Bake - Candy Coated

Ritz Cracker Cookies - No Bake - Candy Coated created by BlondieItaliana

I've been making these for years now. Everyone always loves them. They are super easy. I know there are a few other recipes out there for these cookies - most use almond or candy bark... these use the "candy melt wafer discs" from craft stores, candy shops, or Walmart Craft Dept., I also microwave the candy melts instead of using a double boiler. Plus, these candy melts come in many colors to suit your needs - think pink candy melts with pink M&M's for October Breast Cancer Awareness, white on white for Bridal Showers... They are so pretty for the Holidays - you can decorate these with any color sprinkles, candy M&M's, I've even used Hershey's Hugs mini-morsels.. the possibilites are endless, just make to suit your occasion... great with bright sprinkles for birthdays, or pastel M&M's for Easter, etc. - have fun! Also good for bridal or baby shower take-home goodie bags. Note: I always use the MINI M&M over the regular size just not to overpower the cracker flavors... just an FYI...

ingredients

  • 80 Ritz crackers (1 whole box that contains 4 sleeves)
  • 34 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 (14 ounce) bags white chocolate candy melts (white chocolate candy melt wafer discs)
  • 13 cup miniature M&M's chocolate candies

directions

  • In Ritz cracker box there are 4 sleeves of crackers.
  • Take 2 sleeves of crackers and top each cracker with enough peanut butter to coat gently - then top with remaining 2 sleeves of crackers which makes cracker sandwiches.
  • Microwave candy melts according to package directions. (I basically cook at 1/2 power and 30 second intervals until candies are melted stirring after each 30 second interval).
  • Drop cracker sandwich into melted chocolate, coat completely & remove with fork shaking off excess chocolate. Top immediately with mini M&M's or sprinkles, or colored sugar, etc.
  • Cool completely before serving/storing.

    These were the biggest hit of our Christmas gathering. I added a little food coloring to the vanilla Chocolate bark before dipping to make it more festive and added sprinkles on top. Yum-Yum. Oh we used Jiffy creamy natural peanut butter. Thank you for sharing this with us.

    Love these. I use peanut butter Ritz Bits--bite size and much quicker!

    I received these as a Christmas gift one year and I had to find them on Zaar. Thank you for posting! They're delicious. They remind me of the Chocolate/Peanut Butter Girl Scout cookies. YUM!

    These are now my favorite cookie! I made a batch for Christmas cookie trays. Then, after tasting the, made another batch for me! I used white vanilla chips for the coating and just used sprinkles for decorating. Mmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmm!

    I loved how easy and how good these are. I actually used peanut butter candy melts for the peanut butter, and did some in regular chocolate and some in white chocolate. While they were all good, we preferred the regular chocolate ones. We'll make these again next year for sure!
