Today I’d love to present my new mint chocolate chip cookies, stuffed with chocolate covered Ritz crackers.
I just giggled typing that out.
I saw these babies in the store and I knew, just knew, what I had to do with them – besides eat a handful, of course. I had to bake them into a cookie. I had to take the sweet, the salty,oh the crispy crunch of these goodies and put them inside a mint chocolate chip cookie.
If you are a regular reader you will know that I make mint chocolate covered Ritz crackers every Christmas, so the idea of a chocolate covered Ritz is not a new one to me. This is basically taking my beloved traditional Christmas recipe and making it into a cookie.
I may have snacked on a couple of these while making the cookies. I’m not admitting anything.
When I was making these I wondered if I could just eat it raw and stopped myself. Really, if there ever was a time to eat raw cookie dough folks, this would be it!

- 2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup of butter
- 3/4 cup of packed brown sugar
- 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups of mint chocolate chips
One box of chocolate covered Ritz crackers
- Kick the tires and light the fires to 350 degrees.
- Cream together your butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy.
- Add in the eggs and vanilla, mixing thoroughly.
- Beat in the flour, baking soda and salt.
- When that is done, fold in the two cups of chocolate chips by hand, and prepare to put them on some parchment paper lined cookie sheets.
- Making sure there is the same amount of dough on either side of the Ritz cracker, pinch the top and bottom dough together like a dumpling, then smooth and mould into a pretty dome-shaped cookie.
- Place on the parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes, depending on how thick your cookies are. They will be golden brown on the bottom and top when done.
- Serving Size: 18
These bake up big, beautiful and scrumptious!
If you try only one new cookie recipe this summer, I highly suggest this one! Get those Ritz crackers while you can and bake them into a cookie!
I hope that everyone is having a fabulous long weekend! Happy Canada Day everyone,we are so blessed to live in this amazing country.
