  • Patti B says:

    Ritz crackers fall apart when you touch them. Not the same quality as they used to be. Can you recommend another brand that is more sturdy?

  • NotSoFast says:

    I used Ghiardelli melting disks, dark and white and also Nestle’s chips. It was too thick to dip as shown in the video, and the crackers crumbled, even after freezing the sandwiches. Looks easy when someone else does it, I guess.

  • Sue says:

    Would melted chocolate chips work for dipping?

    • Amanda says:

      Yes! I would add a bit of shortening or oil

  • Debra says:

    These are my absolute favorite cookies. My sister made them for me every Christmas. She passed away so I started making them. We only made the peanut butter version but going to add the Nutella and marshmallow creme ones this Chritmas. Only make for Christmas because they are so addicting I can’t eat them all the time. I would end up weighing 500 lbs.

  • Debra says:

    Ritz crackers do break but they are worth it. Also I use the choclate almond bark it works the t for dipping and setting up.

  • Darlene says:

    Can these cookies be commercially produced?

  • Joan Gwynn says:

    Your recepies are so simple but looks fantastic am definitely going to make them for my chocoholic hubby.

  • Cheri says:

    I use mini peanut butter Ritz bites and dip them in melted butterscotch chips. Yummy!

  • Christine G says:

    I’ve been making these for years only we do marshmallow flush with the peanut butter together. Yum!
