Christmas Peanut Butter Crackers
CAUTION! CAUTION! CAUTION!! CAUTION!! CAUTION!! CAUTION!! CAUTION!!
These are just about good enough to make you slap your momma! Ha-Ha-Ha! No, seriously, these things are scrumptious and addicting. We make these every year as part of our Christmas Treats Extravaganza! Some families probably just call that night Christmas Eve. But, we call it our Christmas Treats Extravaganza! (It's fun to say. Use your biggest announcer's voice. Try it.) We make a ton of different kinds of goodies/ treats and we eat them for dinner, and then we have plenty for our company that comes to visit. You should try these, and I promise your family will love them! They almost taste like Nutter butter cookies!
Creamy Peanut Butter
Almond Bark Candy
Lay out a long piece of wax paper. Spread peanut butter on a Ritz cracker and sandwich it with another Ritz cracker. Make these using 1 whole sleeve of crackers. Once you get this far, set them aside and break your almond bark into squares. Place them into a microwavable bowl, and melt them in the microwave for about 60 seconds. Take the bowl out of the microwave and try to stir the squares and break them up as much as you can. Then put the bowl back in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Then stir and break up lumps. You will do this over if needed until the candy is all melted and smooth. Then put a Ritz cracker sandwich into the candy and flip it over with the fork covering as much of the sandwich as you can. You have to work quickly because the hot candy melts the peanut butter! Then as you pick up the Ritz cracker sandwich with a fork (kind of scoop it up. don't stab it with the tongs!) , you can tap the fork gently on the bowl to get off excess candy. Then put the Ritz cracker onto the wax paper you have layed out. Finish the entire sleeve of cracker sandwiches you have made.
You can get about 1 & 1/2 sleeves of Ritz cracker peanut butter sandwiches dipped to one package of almond bark candy.
