Peanut Butter Chocolate Ritz Cookies

Every year I try to share a classic holiday cookie recipe here. I find that no matter how many cookies we make ourselves, it’s always fun to see how someone else makes them so we can get new ideas. Today I'm sharing Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Cookies that I dress up with some cute holiday colors. They are really easy to make and taste absolutely delicious. In this episode I make them with my son!

These are a more recent classic cookie. I think they were initially developed by people who wanted to recreate the taste of Girl Scout Cookies. There is no need for an oven for these cookies, which makes them even more fun to make with young children. I start by making the peanut butter Ritz sandwiches, then I dip them in melted chocolate. At this point it’s really smart to have them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper to cool down, otherwise they’ll make a big mess on your countertops.

Before they cool, go crazy with the holiday decorations. Sprinkles, drizzled white chocolate, whatever you want, really. I put my kids in charge of the decorating because they have so much fun! After that, slip them in the fridge or freezer to cool. Then, store them in a container lined with wax paper. If you live somewhere warm, I recommend keeping them in the fridge so they don’t melt. I think you’ll love these cookies as much as my family does. If you aren’t making them for the holidays don’t worry, simple skip the holiday decorations and enjoy

These are so easy because they don’t require any baking. I love making these with the kids because they are so simple and everyone loves them. We have fun decorating them with red and green sprinkles for the holidays!
