RITZ Peanut Butter and Chocolate Touchdown Treats

Prep Time: 20 min Total Time: 30 min Makes 24 servings, 1 cracker sandwich each.

Ingredients

48 RITZ Crackers

1/2 cup peanut butter

1-1/2 pkg. (4 oz. each) semi-sweet baking chocolate (6 oz.), melted 1 tube (4.25 oz.) decorating icing

Preparation

Place 24 crackers, top sides down, in a single layer on a parchment-covered baking sheet. Spread crackers on a baking sheet with peanut butter, adding about 1 tsp. peanut butter to each cracker.

Cover with remaining crackers, top sides up, to make 24 sandwiches. Gently press the top crackers into peanut butter to secure.

Dip cracker sandwiches, one at a time, halfway into melted chocolate. Return to the prepared baking sheet.

Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until chocolate is firm.

Decorate with icing to resemble footballs as shown in the photo.

Tips

Variation

Increase the chocolate to 2 (4-oz.) pkg. of chocolate. Instead of dipping the cracker sandwiches halfway into the melted chocolate, coat the sandwiches completely with the melted chocolate. Continue as directed. If desired, you can omit the icing used to decorate the cracker sandwiches.

Variation

Omit the decorating icing. Coat the cracker sandwiches with the melted chocolate as directed, then top evenly with 2 Tbsp. colored sprinkles in the color(s) of your favorite sports team.

Decorating Icing

You can decorate all the cracker sandwiches in 1 color of icing, or you can instead decorate them using the colors of your favorite sports team. If you can’t find the 4.25-oz. tubes of icing, you can use about half of an 8-oz. or 9-oz. tube of cookie decorating icing. You will need to plan on using about 1/4 tsp. of icing for each cookie sandwich.
