Puttin' On The Ritz

Cassie *


These yummy crackers are delicious, if you like chocolate and peanut butter! They also make a nice accompaniment to a cookie tray.

Not hard at all to make. Nothing but spreading and dipping...they are a cinch!...

  • 2
    sleeves, ritz crackers
  • 1 - 11.5 oz
    package, semi sweet or milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp
    crisco, shortening
  • ·
    peanut butter - i use crunchy
  • ·
    crushed nuts ( optional )

How to Make Puttin' On The Ritz


  1. Spread about a teaspoon of peanut butter on 1 sleeve of crackers.
  2. Top with the other sleeve of crackers.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips and Crisco. Stir several times to blend well.

    You may need to microwave for a couple seconds in between when dipping the crackers to keep the chocolate soft.
  4. Dip crackers, covering well and place on cookie sheets covered with wax paper. ( I then sprinkled with some chopped pecans.) Chill to set and store in air tight containers.


    I find that using clean fingers to swirl on the chocolate works well. Also, kids and big kids, love to join in the fun...as they get to lick off their fingers when done...lol!
