Peppermint Patty Stuffed Ritz Crackers

Peanut butter dipped Ritz crackers are one of our favorite Christmas cookie recipes. These Peppermint Patty Stuffed Ritz Crackers are a new spin on that classic!

Peppermint Patty Stuffed Ritz CrackersI am so excited about all things peppermint this year! In the last couple of weeks since all of the Christmas merchandise hit the stores, I’ve bought candy cane lollipops, peppermint baking chips, chocolates with candy cane bits, mini candy canes, peppermint nougats, peppermint puffs, peppermint patties and even peppermint coffee creamer. Not to mention that my house already smells like peppermint because of the Peppermint Pampering Gifts In A Jar that I made. Seriously, every time I open one of the containers of Peppermint Body Butter, I want to taste it (even though it is NOT edible) because it smells so good!

So, this led me to making something edible with peppermint and I decided on something really easy: Peppermint Patty Stuffed Ritz Crackers. They are even easier to make than the peanut butter dipped Ritz crackers because you don’t have to spread the peanut butter on the crackers. Just plop a York Peppermint Pattie between two crackers, warm it for a couple seconds and you are ready to dip!

York Peppermint PattiesPlace unwrapped peppermint patties on top of Ritz crackers on a microwave safe plate.

Ritz Cookie SandwichTop them with another Ritz cracker.

Peppermint Patty Cookie SandwichPlace them in the microwave for a couple seconds (5-8 seconds for my microwave) to soften the peppermint patties. Don’t microwave them for too long or the mint filling will become liquid and yes, I know that from experience. Gently press down on the crackers until the peppermint patties are about the same size as the crackers. This makes them easier to dip and it makes the crackers stick to the chocolate part of peppermint patties.

Chocolate CandiQuikMelt some chocolate CandiQuik, dip the peppermint patty sandwiches into it and place them on a silicone mat or parchment paper.

Crushed PeppermintsCrush some peppermint candy canes.

Dipped Chocolate Peppermint CookiesSprinkle the crushed candy canes on the dipped cookies before the chocolate sets.

Peppermint Patty Dipped Ritz CrackersSee if you can resist eating one before the chocolate hardens! These are one of those Christmas cookie recipes that is perfect for a cookie exchange because they are so easy to make!

  12. I’ve been looking for a few new holiday cookie/candy recipes that can withstand shipping and these look like they’ll fit the bill nicely. Of course it doesn’t hurt that I love peppermint patties. But I was wondering if you could give me some idea on how much of the chocolate candies I should per batch of “cookies”? Also, do you have any idea if chocolate Baking chips, like the kind used in choc.chip cookies would work? Can’t wait to try these. Thanks in advance.
