These things have been made by my family since before I can remember. Been made by my sibs and I since we were under age 4. Very good family tradition that we've made almost every year for Christmas and sometimes other holidays. Oh, one thing, you CAN NOT sub the generic excuses for Ritz crackers.....they will not be as crunchy, buttery, or good!
- Melt chocolate bark.
- Make sandwiches with Ritz and peanut butter by spreading peanut butter on a Ritz cracker and topping with another cracker. Repeat with others.
- Dip sandwiches in chocolate bark, coating them with chocolate.
- Put chocolate covered sandwiches on cookie sheets covered in wax paper.
- Completely cool.
This was awesome and easy. I didn't have any bark so I melted a bag of Hersey's milk chocolate chips and dipped into it. I stuck the Ritz cookie in the freezer to make sure it set properly and it was PERFECT! Thanks for sharing elizagirl!
Perfect! I found this recipe in Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove Cookbook. She calls it Jack Griffin's Christmas Cookies and says there are no exact amounts--just get a jar of peanut butter, a box of Ritz crackers, a bag of chocolate chips, and the candies of your choice to top (i.e., holiday sprinkles at Christmas or Reese's Pieces at Halloween). She says to store them in the refrigerator. I dipped both sides of the Ritz cracker in peanut butter and stuck them together. This is so easy to make and with ingredients you have on hand that it's a slightly dangerous recipe. Yum! Thanks for posting elizagirl!
My family loves the combination of peanut butter and chocolate so these were a big hit. Very easy to make and absolutely yummy!!! Thanks for sharing, TNS! **Made for the P-A-R-T-Y Cooking Event**
