Chocolate Covered Ritz Crackers for Nutella Day!

Nutella 7425 R

Yay! Today is "World Nutella Day 2010" - a day to celebrate, get creative with, and most importantly, EAT Nutella!

Being in love with the salty/sweet taste sensation, these crackers are totally awesome! I've seen them with peanut butter, and one of my favourite things to eat is Nutella spread onto Ritz crackers. So why not have both - and then cover it in white chocolate. I don't need to say anymore!

Just make as many as you want!

Ritz crackers
Peanut butter
White chocolate

Spread half the crackers with Nutella, and half with peanut butter. Put the halves together and put in the fridge to set a little while you melt the chocolate.

Melt the chocolate in a double saucepan or the microwave, dip the filled crackers into the chocolate and turn them over to coat them properly. Lift out of the chocolate with a fork and lay them on some baking parchment. Put them into the fridge to set.

Y'know, I was a little sceptical on reading the title of your post. Now, however, I'm thinking that I'm going to be making some of these babies! ;)

sunita said...

Nic, you've puttwo of my favourite things together ( nutella and peanut butter)! How could I say no :-)

Happy Nutella Day Nic.Very inventive, like a salty version of an upscale Reece's Peanut Butter Cup. Your sweet tweat would go very well with the semifreddo I made.

is it really? how funny - it's my birthday today and everyone says I'm a bit nutty! your treats look delicious and I love salt/sugar combinations. This is a more glamourous option than taking a bite of choc and a handful of crisps in the same mouthful!

Such a great idea and they look wonderful.

grace said...

I didn't know what to expect when I clicked on this recipe - pleasantly suprised!!

I think it's quite fitting that there is an entire day devoted to this treat. I love Nutella and am gulity of eating it by the spoonful

Chele said...

How did I miss World Nutella Day !?!?!?! Stupid broken laptop
Will have to make a batch of the Nutella filled Ritz biscuits to make up for it!

ruth said...

I made these same exact cookies a few weeks ago. I gave them to my friend as a gift - she LOVED them. To make them even more special, I sprinkled chopped walnuts onto the white chocolate while it was still hot so they'd stick.

What a great idea!

diva said...

ooh these are positively scrumptious! So pretty and they look easy to make too. Perfect for taking to work with me, no? :D

Patchwork Dragon said...

They look scrummy Nic...only you could make the humble Ritz cracker look that good!

I think I'm in love... I have always been a fan of sweet/savoury combos since I was a kid, so this sounds like a piece of heaven to me.

Love sweet and salty. Love this. Thanks so much for participating!

Lisa said...

A very great variation on my usual peanut butter filled butterscotch covered version. The sweet/salty combo is so tasty and I am always amazed at how easy these are to make!

Kate Idano said...

Just made these as Christmas gifts for friends. DELICIOUS! Made one batch with just Nutella, covered in white chocolate and sprinkled with candy cane crumbs, and the second batch with Nutella and pb, covered in milk chocolate with chocolate sprinkles. Super easy - could make in my dorm room - and everyone loved them!! Thanks for the recipe!
