This is one of those “old school” cookie recipes that grandmothers could whip up if the kiddos were coming over in 20 minutes and it was too hot to turn on the oven to bake real cookies. At least that’s what I remember.
Best No-Bake Cookie Recipe For Kids
This is one of the easiest recipes to make and if you have kiddos in the house, they can help you make this since no stove is needed.
I switched up the regular recipe I remembered by using crunchy peanut butter, rather than smooth. It provides and extra crunch all round, and who doesn’t love peanuts and chocolate? Huh? AND! Once you bite into one of these suckers, you get a sight like this:
Oh Mama Pajama. You ready to get started? Let’s go!
Using Different No Bake Cookie Fillings
Here’s what I really love about this ritz cookies recipe: you can mix it up! Like I said above, switching from smooth peanut butter to crunchy was a game changer.
You can also use marshmallow creme, and turn these into a mallowmar type of no bake cookie. One of our favorite variations of the ritz cookie recipe is using a Nutella filling, but covering them with white chocolate.
So, here’s my challenge to you. Get crazy with the fillings. You won’t regret it.
Ritz Cookies Recipe
1 cup chocolate chips or chopped chocolate bars(white, milk or dark…whatever you like)
1 tub crunchy peanut butter
1 sleeve of Ritz crackers
Line cookie sheet with wax paper.
Drop each sandwich in the chocolate and completely cover.
Make sure to brush the chocolate right up the sides so it gets into the cracks between the two crackers.
The best way to cover it all is to flip the cookie after you cover the sides.
*Don’t like peanut butter? Try making the ritz cookies with marshmallow fluff, cookie butter, or Nutella!
