Notes

  1. Ritz crackers are best! But you can use any other buttery saltine crackers too.
  2. Use premium quality chocolate either blocks or chips. You want the chocolate to melt well.
  3. Add ¼ teaspoon coconut oil to chocolate before melting. Coconut oil will help melt chocolate into smooth silky chocolate.
  4. Don’t spread peanut butter to the edges or else it will spill out.
  5. Gently press another cracker to form sandwich with evenly distributed peanut butter center.
  6. You can refrigerate cracker sandwich for 20-30 minutes to firm up the peanut butter before dipping in melted chocolate. Makes it easier to work.
  7. Use two forks to flip cracker sandwich in melted chocolate. It’s easy to tap off excess chocolate coating with fork.
