See the peppermint patty inside? And the flaky crispy cracker? Perfection if you ask me! I love to work with chocolate and these are so easy to make!
When the chocolate has set you just drizzle the white candy over them and sprinkle with the crushed peppermint candy! Easy Peasy!!
How do you dip Ritz crackers in chocolate?
Holding the cookie between two forks makes it easy to dunk the cookie in the chocolate and allow the excess to drizzle off.
What can I substitute in the center of the cookie?
- Rollo’s or chocolate-covered caramels
- Peanut Butter Cups
- Any nut butter: almond, peanut butter or Nutella, use your favorite!
If peppermint patties aren’t your cookie of choice, there are several things you can substitute for the center.
You can also change up the sprinkles to go with your party theme or favorite holiday!
These are a sure hit no matter where to bring them and they are so easy you will want to include them on your holiday cookie platters! I promise everyone will be raving over these!!
