Chocolate on the Ritz Cookies

My dad and I are absolute fiends when it comes to these cookies! Every year around Christmas time our neighbor, Linda, made goody bags for everybody and she always put these cookies in there. Once she figured out how much we loved them she started making a few extra to give to us just because.

 I love these so much. One, because they’re freaking delicious, and two, because they hold such fond memories for me. I try not to make them too often because I will down about a dozen a day and that’s just plain unhealthy! In my defense, it feels worth it at the time. ?

These are extremely easy to make and even easier to eat! Enjoy!


  • Ritz crackers
  • Vanilla almond bark coating
  • Peanut butter

Melt 12 oz vanilla bark coating over a double broiler, stirring occasionally. As a rule of thumb, it takes about 12 oz of almond bark to coat one sleeve of Ritz cracker peanut butter sandwiches.

As the vanilla coating is melting, spread a little peanut butter on the crackers and make sandwiches out of them.

After you’ve finished making the Ritz sandwiches dip them into the melted chocolate, turning to coat.

Lift out with a fork and put on wax paper to wait for vanilla coating to harden.

Add sprinkles to some for the kiddos!

Lailah calls them ice cream cookies. I thought that was a pretty cute name. One thing about kids is they will come up with the funniest names for things. For instance: Pizza is pizza, but pizza is also a cheese quesadilla. A “pickle” is a hot dog in Lailahs book even though she doesn’t like pickles. It takes an interpreter sometimes to decider what it is they’re wanting! 

Give this recipe a try for your next get together or if you just need a sweet treat for yourself. I hope you enjoy!
