How Do You Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Crackers?

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. This just makes for easy clean-up because the drizzle tends to get everywhere. Layer Ritz crackers out on the cookie sheet, making sure none of them are overlapping.

Combine chocolate chips and coconut oil in a bowl or measuring cup and melt in your microwave on high for 45 – 60 seconds. Stir well to make sure your chocolate is smooth with no lumps. I do this in my measuring cup so that it drizzles easily. Also, my microwave is slow so it takes about 90 seconds. Drizzle chocolate across Ritz crackers.

Melt your peanut butter in a bowl, or measuring cup, on high for 30 seconds in the microwave. Stir well to make sure your peanut butter is smooth with no lumps. I also do this in my glass measuring cup so that it drizzles well. Drizzle peanut butter across Ritz crackers.

Place your cookie sheet of Chocolate Covered Ritz crackers into the fridge and allow to set for 10 minutes before serving.

Tips for Making Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Drizzles

No matter how long you leave the crackers to sit, the peanut butter will always remain soft. This means you’ll never want to stack any of these crackers before and after drizzling. If you do, it will become a mess and the peanut butter will get everywhere.

The coconut oil simply makes the chocolate much smoother and easier to work with. This means you won’t be dealing with lumps. It also gives you a bit longer before the chocolate starts to harden on you. Drying time isn’t longer as far as placing the crackers in the fridge. However, it will ensure you have plenty of time in between the microwave and drizzling on the chocolate before it hardens on you.

Commonly Asked Questions About Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Drizzles

Are Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Crackers Vegan?

This little snack isn’t considered vegan unless you get specific brands of each ingredient that specify they’re vegan. If you’re not careful, many products include ingredients you don’t realize. In other words, if you’re vegan, you’ll have to pay close attention to ensure the specific brand you use is thorough on keeping their ingredients clean of anything that could make it not vegan. This snack is still considered vegetarian, though.

Are Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Crackers Gluten Free?

Most peanut butter and chocolate chips are gluten free. However, some of the cheaper brands will be made alongside wheat ingredients causing them to not be gluten free. The Ritz crackers aren’t gluten free but, you can get a gluten free replacement cracker pretty easily at most grocery stores. As always, simply check your ingredients since it can be a surprise what some brands include in their simplest of products.
