With summer upon us, I have a no bake dessert recipe for you today! These are one of my favorite snacks or desserts. I love animal crackers, I love them so much. It was one of the treats my mom actually allowed us to have growing up, and I coveted them whenever she let us buy them! If I could have melted chocolate, dipped them in, and added sprinkles as I kid — I totally would have!

But, as they said in Step Brothers, “Even better, we got them when we're forty!” And I got them even before I'm forty, so I'll take it! This is a super easy recipe, even one that your kids can help with and it will be so much fun for them!

Why You'll Love This Recipe

Nostalgic: Animal crackers are just pure nostalgia for me. So, I love eating these now and again to feel like a kid again.

Chocolate Dipped: Everything is better when dipped in chocolate and these Chocolate Dipped Animal Crackers are no exception! I use dark chocolate for an elevated animal cracker, but you could also use milk chocolate or white chocolate too.

Easy AF: This no bake dessert recipe is easy AF! I love making simple desserts when it's warm outside and you don't want to turn on the oven. I also love storing these in the fridge for a cool treat.

Ingredients

Animal Crackers: Use your favorite organic animal crackers! I used the Costco Kirkland Organic Animal Crackers in this recipe today.

Dark Chocolate: Use your favorite organic dark chocolate! I used Mama Ganache which is perfect for melting. Make sure you are using a chocolate without stabilizers so it will melt really well.

Rainbow Sprinkles: I used ColorKitchen Nonpareil Sprinkles in these Chocolate Dipped Animal Crackers, but feel free to use different ones as well. You can even switch it up for holidays with just the sprinkles.
