No Bake Ritz Cookies for St. Patrick’s Day
These cookies are so easy, and boy are they colorful. I used the green and yellow candy melts so that we created the ultimate St. Patrick’s Day dessert. Best of all you don’t even have to turn on the oven.
Are Ritz Cookies Or Crackers
Ritz are crackers, but with a little peanut butter and melted chocolate, they get transformed into a cookie. This recipe always reminds me of the Girl Scout cookies. They are similar in flavor.
How Do You Dip Ritz In Chocolate
I used a fork to lift the cookies out of the chocolate for the white. Then I gently tapped the edge of the cracker, so that it will drip off the excess. Once the white chocolate is dry, then you go to the next stage of dipping.
