So, I am going to tell you how to make Homemade Buttery Ritz Crackers……
Then I am going to tell you how to cut them into bunnies (or circles or whatever you have on hand). Then I am going to tell you how to stuff them with peanut butter and then I will tell you how to completely cover them in chocolate, and if you’re in the spring spirit, you can even decorate them with some Easter Sprinkles.
It is pretty awesome.
Basically these sandwich cookies have it all going on.
Buttery, sweet, salty, peanuty and chocolatey. Winning Combo right there.
Remember when I told you that my grandma sent me some stuff from Sur La Table? While, among the goodies in the box was a bunny cookie cutter. So, yeah you can see what happened next.
I just HAD to use it as soon as possible. So I thought and thought and thought some more about what the heck I could cut into bunnies. Seriously, I was pulling my hair out trying to come up with something good other than the obvious sugar cookie. Believe it or not sugar cookies are not all that popular around here. Too much sugar, not enough chocolate. Finally, I was thinking of flavor combos and suddenly I was like Ritz! Ritz, Peanut Butter and Chocolate!
You could definitely use store-bought Ritz crackers for this, but I DO NOT recommend it. The homemade version is ten times better and no hydrogenated oils, so that is obviously a bonus. Plus, you get to add as much salt and butter to the top of these as you want! Customized to your liking. And don’t get frustrated if you can’t make the chocolate perfectly mold the bunnies. It’s a hard thing to do and the extra bumps give them character!
Ok, and the peanut filling. It is just ,well, lick every last finger good! Especially sandwiched between two crackers and then covered in chocolate. Good, Simple, Fun and adorable.
Really, these things are savory worthy. Just rescue a precious few from the in-house chocolate devourers, then stockpile them away for your own little private “after hours” party.
