I recently posted this adorable snack on my Facebook page and was inspired to create a similar snack but more for a Valentines Day Snack Idea. I know peanuts are not allowed in most schools now, but maybe your child’s classroom does not have any allergies or they make a great after school snack.
You can make a bunch of this Irresistibly Good Peanut Butter Chocolate Covered Ritz Cracker Sandwiches very quickly and they are better than candy.
The saltiness of the Ritz Crackers and the sweetness of the chocolate is a winning combination anytime of year. Not to mention the creaminess of the peanut butter filling.
Chocolate Covered Ritz Cracker Sandwiches For Valentine’s Day
This could not be any easier Valentines Day Snack Idea and you can add any sort of Nut Butter or Chocolate spread your family enjoys.
What you need for these Valentine’s Day Cracker Sandwiches:
- Ritz Crackers or any buttery cracker

BUTTER CRACKER SANDWICHES FILLING IDEAS
The original crackers I saw had only peanut butter but since chocolate is such a big part of Valentine’s Day we added Nutella in some of them.
- Peanut butter
- Any Nut Butter
- Cookie Butter
Nutella and Ritz crackers
Simply spread a thin layer of peanut butter or Nutella on top of one Ritz Crackers, we used the whole wheat variety. (any buttery round cracker will do)
Place another cracker on top and dip into melted chocolate. (I prefer the chocolate discs that come in the container so much easier but a little more expensive) Be sure to follow these directions on how to melt chocolate correctly.
Allow any excess chocolate to drip off to make a smooth looking surface. You can also cover the entire cracker sandwich in the chocolate. It’s up to you.
Place Ritz cracker sandwiches dipped in chocolate onto parchment paper and immediately sprinkle them with Valentine’s Day sprinkles. (any sprinkle will do but we wanted a Valentines Day Snack idea here)
Since it was cold outside, I just placed the tray outside and allowed the chocolate to harden.
Then serve these Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Crackers to your favorite Valentines. I guarantee these Chocolate Covered Cracker Sandwiches are one snack that will not last in your house.
Even my husband was caught eating a few.
No matter what time of year, you can treat your family to these easy but tasty cracker sandwiches
