There is certainly no baking involved and it’s barely even cooking. It’s hardly even a recipe. It’s more of an arts & crafts project.

One you can eat.

Have you ever had Ritz Cracker Cookies before? They are mind-blowingly good. If you dig that sweet-and-salty combo situation, you are going to love these.

With just 3 ingredients, these Ritz Cracker Cookies are the EASIEST no-bake sweet and salty treat, ever. Even the kids can help assemble these!

If you have no idea what you are looking at (Helen, I’m looking at you), let me break it down for you:

Peanut butter sandwiched between crackers and dipped in white chocolate.

Sprinkles? Optional.

That’s all there is to it. I tried these at my mother-in-law’s house years ago, and now it’s my favorite treat that she makes. The one I look forward to the most.

I pass on the expertly-decorated gingerbread men, the homemade caramels, and the M&M cookies while hoarding the Ritz Cracker Cookies.

If you have kids, put them to work! Mine can pretty much only handle the sprinkles (they are both under 5), but if you have teenagers, encourage family bonding via the spreading of peanut butter on crackers. Win-win.

  1. LOL… so funny, Meggan! (I assume you were referring to MY probable bemusement in this post!)

    Actually, though, you might be surprised at this one. We do have Ritz crackers here, and the whole sweet-savoury thing has crossed the pond little by little.

    Although I must admit this isn’t something you’d generally find in a British kitchen, I’m sure it’s something most Brits would enjoy and like being introduced to!

    Personally, I love them. I can’t get enough of these sorts of simple, almost non-recipe recipes!

  2. These were SO delicious. I’m not a big fan of white chocolate, but paired with ritz and peanut butter…mike drop…!

  3. You had me at 3 ingredients! These look so yummy and simple to make. I’d dip mine in dark chocolate since my family is a bunch of chocoholics ;) I can’t wait to try them out!

  4. Do you think they would taste as good with milk chocolate?

    • YES. Absolutely. My husband prefers them that way. I’m obsessed with the white chocolate, but they are great with any/all the chocolates!
