Sweets for Your Sweetie

I've got a super easy, a bit messy, but very yummy treat for you today.  Over the holidays, my husband received these cookies from a co-worker and I could NOT stop eating them!!  Seriously.  They were so addictive.  And when something's that good, I need to share it.  Thanks, Ruth, for letting me share your cookie recipe today.

You can easily change these cookies for each season just by changing the sprinkles.  So here's my Valentine's Day version of the Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cracker Cookies.

What You Need:
Ritz crackers
Peanut butter
Chocolate melts

Step 1:
    Spread a thick layer of peanut butter onto the cracker to create a sandwich.  In my opinion, the thicker the better.  It gives a better balance to offset the chocolate's sweetness.

    Oh, and I put some on sucker sticks for fun.

I also tried Peanut Butter Ritz Bits as a snack size version, however, I will tell you right now, the big ones are better.  The mini's just don't have enough peanut butter to balance out the sweetness, but that's just me.

Step 2:

Melt chocolate with double boiler or microwave.
I did the microwave.
(follow directions on chocolate package)

Step 3:

Lay out a sheet of wax paper or cupcake liners in a cupcake pan.

Step 4:

Dip crackers in chocolate.
Use tongs to remove and set them on the wax paper or in a cupcake liner.
Make sure to put your sprinkles on before they harden.

Like I said, a bit messy.

Get creative with your sprinkles.
I also used a squeeze bottle full of colored chocolate for x's and o's, stripes and polka dots.

I know, the drips on my stick aren't too pretty.  It was my first time doing such a project.  Oops.

Package them up and give to someone you love.

Or just eat them with someone you love!

Happy Friday!


  1. I have a friend who used to make these (minus the stick) for me on my b-day because they are DELICIOUS! They remind me of those chocolate peanut butter Girl Scout Cookies.

  2. these look super yummy! Sometimes the simplest recipes are the most addictive! I think I'll try these for the holidays next year. Definitely seems like something the kids could do!

  3. Yum....we are going to have to give these a try.


I'm so glad you stopped by for a slice of Plumberry Pie today! Your comments make my day, so comment away!
