How to Make Peanut Butter Ritz Cracker Ornaments

Step 1: In separate microwave-safe bowls, melt the white almond bark and chocolate almond bark according to the package directions. Make sure to avoid overcooking the bark, or it will harden and clump.

Step 2: Working in small batches, coat the Ritz peanut butter crackers in either the white or chocolate almond bark, then lift them out of the chocolate using a fork. Drain the excess chocolate back into the bowl, then carefully transfer them to a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Avoid moving them around too much on the paper, so the chocolate doesn’t spread.

Step 3: Add sprinkles to the coated Ritz crackers before they harden. Then dip the wide end of Reese’s cups lightly into either of the melted barks and stick one on the end of each Ritz cracker to create a Christmas ornament design.

Step 4: Once each cracker is coated and decorated, place the baking sheet in the fridge for 10-15 minutes to fully harden. Once set, remove them from the fridge, place them on a serving platter, and enjoy!

You can substitute candy melts for bark if you want to make green and red ornaments!

Storage

Make sure to lay these flat on a serving tray or in a tin. If you need to stack them, I recommend using wax paper between the layers to ensure the chocolate doesn’t scuff or chip.
