Ritz Cookies are a nostalgic treat that combines the irresistible duo of chocolate and peanut butter.

These no-bake delights are perfect for any occasion, from holiday gatherings to afternoon snacks.

With just a few simple ingredients, you can whip up a batch of these sweet and salty sandwich cookies in no time.

Get ready to indulge in a classic favorite!


Ritz crackers: The buttery base for our cookies.

Peanut butter: Creamy or crunchy, your choice!

Chocolate chips: Semi-sweet, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate—pick your favorite.

Coconut oil (optional): Helps melt the chocolate smoothly.

Optional toppings: Flaky sea salt and sprinkles for extra flair.


Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper.

Arrange Ritz crackers in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, half facing up and half facing down.

Spread about ½ tablespoon of peanut butter onto the center of each cracker.

Gently press another cracker onto the peanut butter layer to create a sandwich cookie.

Avoid squeezing too hard to prevent peanut butter from oozing out.

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips (and coconut oil if using) in 30-second bursts, stirring between each burst.

Alternatively, use a double boiler.

Dip each cracker sandwich into the melted chocolate, coating it completely.

Use two forks to lift the cookie out of the chocolate, tapping the fork on the side of the bowl to remove excess chocolate.

Place the dipped cookies back on the parchment paper.

Sprinkle flaky sea salt or add colorful sprinkles for a festive touch.

Let the chocolate set completely before serving.
