Super Easy Dark Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cracker Cookies

I don’t know why this idea never occurred to me before! This is the easiest, most satisfying dessert I’ve ever made. It literately took Kala and me 15 minutes to do everything!

The messiest part is digging your knife in the peanut butter jar, being that I eat a LOT of peanut butter and the jar is almost always empty. 😀 Hehe!

I read a quote today from our nations 20th president, James A. Garfield:

“Man cannot live by bread alone; he must have peanut butter.”

Well, here’s your bread, peanut butter…and a bonus: chocolate!

Super Easy Dark Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cracker Cookies

inspired by Stephanie Frick


  • Town House Light Buttery Crackers (or buttery cracker of your choice, I chose this one because it was low in fat, calories and sodium….and didn’t contain high fructose corn syrup, a.k.a. the enemy)
  • Natural creamy peanut butter (I use Skippy because you don’t have to refrigerate it)
  • Ghirardelli 60% cacao chocolate chips


  1. Spread peanut butter on one side of the crackers.
  2. Place a cracker on top of the peanut butter to make a peanut butter cracker sandwich.
  3. Melt the chocolate chips on a double boiler (in a glass bowl on top of simmering water in a pot).
  4. Dip the peanut butter crackers in the chocolate and place on parchment paper or non-stick aluminum foil.
  5. Place in the refrigerator to harden.
  6. Eat either chilled or at room temperature.


    1. Haha…yep! Well, it’s kind of like breakfast: bread, peanut butter (protein)…and what’s a little chocolate? You eat chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast. 😉

    1. Indeed. So easy and soooo delicious. 🙂 Well, besides my mom, who when she took a bite out of it said, ‘Eww, is this dark chocolate?!?’…she’s a pure milk chocolate fan. But, I just love the dark chocolate (plus all the ‘better for you’ qualities). 🙂

  1. My children and I make these with white chocolate and LOVE them-it never occurred to me to try them with milk or dark chocolate! We’ll give this a try this weekend!

  2. OMG These look absolutely gorgeous!! And ridiculously easy to make.. I’m sure making them, cuz I’m somehow in love with peanut butter, also in love with chocolate.. But the combination of both drives me crazy!!


  3. I think I improved on these. On one cracker I put peanut butter and on the other I put marshmallow fluff.
    Sandwiched them, then dipped in the melted chocolate.

    To die for !

    1. Oh my. I’m going to have to try that! My husband is crazy about marshmallow fluff and he would go crazy for those. 🙂

    1. Yum!!! I’m so glad you found me on Tasteologie! I first had these when they were made with Ritz crackers and they were delicious. I’m so glad that you made them and enjoyed them! 🙂

  4. O my gosh…this is either pure genius, or pure evil! Genius when I eat them, and evil on my thighs, I guess. Seriously? Cannot WAIT to try these. Damn!

    1. Haha..i know! Chocolate + Peanut butter is a weekly essential (or daily if you’re like me). 😉 Thank you so much Val!
