Food: Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Ritz Cracker Cookies

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Ritz Cracker Cookies

Super-Duper EASY and so good!

You'll need ..

Ritz Crackers
Peanut Butter
Chocolate Chips or Almond Bark
Paraffin Wax

Spread peanut butter between two Ritz crackers and use tongs to dip into chocolate. Top with sprinkles! 

If you've never used melted chocolate before, here is what you will need to do...

Melting the chocolate will require a double boiler or two cookers stacked on top of each other like I used in the photo below. Fill the bottom cooker about 1/2 full of water and sit the other on top. Turn your burner on medium-high. The water will need to be at a steady boil, but not enough to boil over. Make sure you keep enough water in the bottom cooker to touch the top one.

 Add your chocolate and paraffin wax into the top cooker and stir until it melts. There is no set ratio for the chocolate and wax. I usually use 1/2 a block of wax per bag of chocolates or package of Almond Bark. If it looks too thick, just add a little more wax. If it is too thin, add some more chocolate.
See, told ya, easy!
