No-Bake Ritz Cracker Cookies

Don’t you just love no-bake cookies? These no-bake ritz cracker cookies are ridiculously easy and dangerously good!

I made these with my mom, and we had a fun time convincing people to try them and then asking them to guess what was in them. 🙂 I’m not sure anyone guessed correctly, but everyone who tried them absolutely loved them!

To make these “cookies”, all you do is take two ritz crackers, sandwich some peanut butter between them, and then dip the whole thing in chocolate. You can decorate the top with sprinkles or a chocolate drizzle, and then that’s it! You’ve made the easiest cookie ever, and it tastes so good.

When we made them, we took things a little further and replaced the peanut butter with nutella in the ones dipped in white chocolate – those were even better than the peanut butter version!

Yield: Makes 40 cookies

These sweet and salty no-bake ritz cracker cookies are a delicious combination of chocolate and peanut butter, and are so easy to make!


  • 80 Ritz crackers
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (I did half with peanut butter, and half with Nutella, yum!!)
  • 12 oz chocolate almond bark
  • 12 oz white almond bark


  1. Spread half of the Ritz crackers with a layer of peanut butter. Top with the remaining crackers to make peanut butter cracker sandwiches. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate almond bark on 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds. In a separate bowl, melt the white almond bark. Using a fork, dip each cracker sandwich in the melted chocolate and place on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Dip half the cookies in the chocolate almond bark, and half in the white almond bark. Let the cookies set until the chocolate has hardened.
  2. *If desired, drizzle a little bit of white almond bark over the chocolate cookies and chocolate almond bark over the white cookies. Alternately, you can top them with sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet.

  1. Girl, you are just a cute Christmas Elf, or a Santa’s Helper. Been following you for a few months, (only after having discovered “blogs”,back in March), and have been printing and pinning a recipe every time you post! Lovely, simplistic, BASICYUMMIES! SO many complicated latty da recipes, love your good old fashioned treats with a slight twist. My ex mom in law, used to place peanut butter between two wheat thins and dip in chocolate. That was about 1986!You probs were not even born or out of diapies yet! So, thanks for sharing your treats, and have a wonderful Holiday Season!

  2. I can’t wait to make these for a cookie swap since I don’t love to bake! However, I just bought all the ingredients and don’t have a microwave! (NYC living for ya!) can you melt almond bark on the stove? Thanks!! 

    • Yes, you totally can! Your best bet on the stove is a double boiler. If you don’t have one, use a saucepan with water in it, and place a bowl on top of that to melt the chocolate in. (google make a double boiler for better instructions. )Or you can melt it in an oven safe bowl in the oven on the warm setting, stirring frequently.

  3. Also, do these need to be refrigerated?

    • They don’t need to be refrigerated, unless maybe if you’re using some sort of natural peanut butter that you would normally refrigerate. Hope you like them! 🙂

  4. Do you have to use almond bark for the chocolate?
