We’re getting closer to Christmas, which means we’re in baking mode…and apparently based on this week’s posts drinking mode as well 🙂
Our family is all about holiday traditions, especially when it comes to food and special beverages! My mom always made these growing up around the holidays and this year I wanted to give them a try. I mean how could you not love Ritz Crackers, peanut butter, and chocolate?! It is seriously three of my favorite things all together. If I were with Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music trying to not be frightened by a storm, this is literally one of the things I would have sung about.
And the great thing is, is that they are sooo easy to make! Who has time during the holidays to spend hours in the kitchen when you could be spending that time with family.
Here is what you will need:
The first thing to do is to go ahead and make your peanut butter sandwiches. I like a lot of peanut butter on mine, so I tend not to measure and just put on what I think is enough.
Then I melt my chocolate bark, which I feel is easiest to do in the microwave. Just be prepared to act quickly once you remove it, so it doesn’t harden. You also want to melt it in intervals so you don’t burn it.
I then dip the entire cookie in the chocolate and remove with a fork.
You want to place it on wax paper after you’ve removed it, so it can harden.
I couldn’t wait to eat these with a cold glass of milk 🙂
They may not have turned out exactly like my mom’s, but they are pretty darn close.
