“These are really cute I made them for a Halloween party with the nutter butter ghosts. The original recipe calls for Oreo's or ChipsAhoy which I didn't have in the house so I improvised. Pretty well anything round that tastes good covered in almond bark would be tasty:) This came from a pdf from Kraft I believe.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 Ritz crackers
  • 7.39 ml peanut butter
  • 28.34-56.69 g almond bark or 28.34-56.69 g vanilla candy coating or 28.34-56.69 g white chocolate or 28.34-56.69 g orange candy melts
  • orange food coloring, and
  • red food coloring
  • food coloring (pens or decorator gel)
  • green sprinkles


  1. Sandwich peanut butter between crackers.
  2. Melt almond bark.
  3. Add 1 drop each of red and yellow food coloring and stir.
  4. *** NOTE!= Beware! I have done this in the past with no problems but the most recent batch of almond bark began seizing on me so I had to add solid shortening, melt, and stir. Each brand is different! I used the orange candy melts to avoid this next.
  5. Dip crackers let dry on waxed paper-repeat for more.
  6. Before they dry I draw 2 curved lines from so they look like this ( ) to make it resemble a pumpkin.
  7. While still wet stick a green sprinkle (you could use anything else to make the stem too such as cut gumdrop).
  8. Draw jack-o-lantern face on with gel or food coloring pen. Enjoy!
  9. Great for the kids!
