These Dipped Ritz Cookies are an easy and yummy treat. The saltiness of the Ritz Crackers and the sweetness of the chocolate is a winning combination! I like to wrap them up in festive cellophane or put them on a plate with other goodies for my neighbors over the holidays.
For my dipped ritz cookies I decided to try these with two different filling flavors, caramel and peanut butter. Both flavors turned out so good! I think the caramel ones taste like a caramel twix bar and the peanut butter ones taste like a white chocolate reeses peanut butter cup. I can’t decide which I like better. You will have to try them and let me know which is your favorite!
Be sure to read my tips on dipping. It is so easy and makes the cookies look smooth and pretty.
Tips For Dipping Your Dipped Ritz Cookies:
1. Melt a small amount of chocolate in a small bowl at a time. For these I filled a small glass (8 oz.) bowl with chocolate and heated it in the microwave for 30 second increments until the chocolate was completely melted. Then I dipped about 10 cookies at a time (using most of the chocolate) before adding more and heating again.
2. If you are using chocolate chips for the chocolate coating on the cookies, add a little canola oil or coconut oil when melting the chocolate chips. Start out with a teaspoon and then gradually add more until the chocolate reaches a consistency that is thin enough to dip the cookies and have them coat evenly.
3. Use a plastic fork with the middle prongs broken off to flip the cookies in the chocolate, then set the cookie on the fork and gently tapped it against the side of the bowl to smooth out and drip off excess chocolate. Place each chocolate cookie on to wax paper to cool and set.
