I love spending time in the kitchen with my nieces. This is the perfect recipe to make with the little ones. Dang cute, easy and portable! —Emily Tyra, Milwaukee, Wisconsin


  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 60 Ritz crackers
  • 24 ounces white candy coating, melted
  • 60 miniature marshmallows
  • 30 mini Ritz crackers
  • Blue chocolate M&M's
  • Black sugar pearls
  • Black decorating icing, optional


  1. Spread peanut butter on half of the crackers; top with remaining crackers to make sandwiches. Refrigerate until firm.
  2. Dip sandwiches in melted candy coating; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper. Dip marshmallows in coating; allow excess to drip off. Place 2 marshmallows on top of each cookie for ears.
  3. Dip mini crackers in melted candy coating; allow excess to drip off. Place on top of sandwiches for snouts. Top each snout with a blue M&M. Decorate with black sugar pearls for eyes and, if desired, use black decorating icing for mouths. Let stand until set. Refrigerate cookies in an airtight container.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Nutella and cookie butter are delicious substitutes for peanut butter.
  • Take these from the North Pole to the North Woods by dipping them in milk or dark chocolate candy coating. Makes for a cute camping treat!
