Description

Ritz Cookies – a classic, easy no-bake ritz cookie recipe that is so delicious! Covered in white chocolate and topped with sprinkles!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 10 oz white chocolate chips (dairy-free or regular)
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 2 sleeves of Ritz crackers
  • 1 small jar creamy peanut butter

Instructions

  1. Take two Ritz crackers and spread about 1/2 – 1 Tablespoon of peanut butter on the rough, salty side of the cracker.
  2. Take the second cracker and place the rough, salty side down on the open peanut butter and press together like a sandwich.
  3. Take finger and smooth peanut butter that may be sticking out between the crackers.
  4. Repeat until you have used all the Ritz crackers.
  5. Place white chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Then continue microwaving for 10-15 second intervals, checking and stirring between each one, until it is melted and smooth.
  6. One at a time, take the “cracker sandwiches” and hold with your thumb and middle finger on opposite sides, where the crackers and peanut butter come together – this will allow you to hold the crackers in place so they don’t slide apart as you are spreading the almond bark.
  7. Take butter knife and start spreading the melted almond bark around the entire cookie.
  8. Place on wax paper immediately to dry.
  9. If you want sprinkles, add immediately as they dry quite quickly.

Notes

  • Ritz Crackers: this is a slightly healthier alternative!
  • Gluten-Free: if you are looking to make these Gluten-Free try the Schar Entertainment crackers (certified gluten-free)! 
  • White Chocolate: feel free to use regular white chocolate chips or dairy-free white chocolate chips.  Also, I did grow up using almond bark on these so you can definitely use that if you prefer.
  • Regular Chocolate: you can also make these with milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips!
  • Storage: Store in an airtight container on the counter top for 2-3 weeks.
  • Peanut Free: you can definitely sub in sunbutter if you need to.
