  • Ritz crackers
  • Peanut butter - creamy or chunky (I prefer the chunky)
  • Chocolate chips (any kind you prefer - I have made them with milk chocolate and semi-sweet)
  • Oil or shortening to thin chocolate with
  • Smear peanut butter between 2 Ritz crackers to make a 'sandwich'
  •  Melt chocolate chips on low heat in a saucepan stirring frequently.  You can use oil or shortening (I actually use olive oil) to thin the chocolate.
  • Using tongs or forks, dip peanut butter sandwiches in chocolate and tap to remove excess chocolate.
  • Set on cookie sheet with wax paper or saran wrap to let set up.  Place them in the refrigerator or freezer to speed this process up.
  • Enjoy!
These are almost too easy to even call a "recipe" but in my mind, a great recipe isn't about hard or complex.  The best ones are taste amazing and are also simple to make. My friend, Carrie, made these and brought them to a baby shower.  Everyone devoured and raved about them!  She shared her recipe and tips with me.  Of course, the real taste test for me is at home.  So, I made them for Rog and Emma.  I had them setting-up in the garage freezer and realized that the two of them were sneaking in to eat them... by the time I took them out to serve... they were already half gone!  I guess that says it all!


  1. Is someone having peanut butter and chocolate pregnancy cravings??? These look sooooo tempting, but I'm on the other side of pregnancy now and have to ween myself off of the cravings :) By the way I'm obsessed with this blog and I am LOVING have new recipes to try out---THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

  2. @Meghan - LOL! Actually, I am treating my husband who puts up with some crazy pregnancy hormones! He loves dessert! Although there has been a chocolate peanut butter theme... I think the reality has been the 'easy to make' theme. Even if you don't make these for yourself, these would be great to take to a party or event if you're in charge of bringing a dessert!

    So glad the blog has been helpful to you! :-)
