Twenty Four Days of Christmas Crafts
So these are not really a craft and more a recipe but they are so delicious that I had to share. Everyone who loves chocolate and peanut butter will love these.
Ritz Peanut Butter Sandwich dipped in Chocolate
Your favorite peanut butter (I used smooth peanut butter)
1 bag chocolate chips
1 tablespoon shortening
Ritz Crackers (we used the new Snowflake kind)
Spread peanut butter on one side of a Ritz cracker. Spread it kind of thick if you like peanut butter. Put another cracker on top of that to create a peanut butter Ritz sandwich. Prepare as many of these before you melt the chocolate.
Melt chocolate chips and shortening in double boiler or in a heat safe bowl placed over a pan with water in it . When melted place in a decent size bowl and drop the peanut butter Ritz sandwich inside. Turn it over so it is well coated and put it on wax paper lined cookie sheet or another container that will fit in your fridge. Place cookie sheet in fridge and allow crackers to harden at least 30 minutes.
Remove from fridge and place in airtight container. I like to keep mine in the fridge because our kitchen is so warm that they will melt. I would recommend making lots of these as they are likely not going to be around for very long.
