Equipment

  • Ghirardelli Chocolate Dark Candy Melting Wafers
  • Pyrex Measuring Cups, 3-Piece, Clear
  • Christmas Gift Tins, Small Box for Cookies or Candy (Set of 4) 

Instructions

  • Put a sheet of wax paper on your cookie sheet.
  • Use your knife to spread peanut butter between two Ritz Crackers, sandwiching the crackers together.
  • Set all your peanut butter cracker sandwiches on the wax paper covered cookie sheet, in preparation for dipping.
  • Melt the chocolate according to package directions.* I like to go the easy route, using my large glass measuring cup and melting the wafers in the microwave.*
  • Once the chocolate is melted, dip each cracker sandwich in the melted chocolate, using the forks or tongs. Shake any excess chocolate off before placing back on the wax paper to dry.
  • When all your crackers have been dipped, chill them in the freezer for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Remove from the freezer and place in an airtight container or holiday tin. Store them in a cool place; I usually just stick them in the fridge.

Notes

4. Depending on the type of chocolate used (chocolate almond barkcandy melts, or chocolate chips), some people like to use shortening or paraffin wax, adding it into their chocolate as it melts. This allows for a thinner coat and stretches the chocolate a little further. But if you use a good quality chocolate, you likely won’t need that extra step. I started using Ghirardelli Dark Melting Wafers a few years ago, and I love them so much better than almond bark. They’re so much easier to work with, and they have fantastic flavor.
4. You can also melt the chocolate using a double boiler on the stove. This is basically a pan inside of another pan with boiling water in the bottom pan. It allows for more even melting without burning, and it also keeps the chocolate warm for dipping.
