Today, I’m going to hang out with my friend, Lindsey. She recently had shoulder surgery and I’m going to help her out with her kids while her husband’s out having some man-time. Anyway, I like to bring a little treat whenever I go to a friend’s house so I did some “baking” yesterday. I call it “baking” because there was no baking involved and the recipe only required 3 ingredients!
I started by laying out a package of Ritz crackers.
I filled a zip lock bag with creamy peanut butter, snipped off the point and started piping.
The hole I snipped was too small and I ended up having a major peanut butter blowout. However, I reloaded the peanut butter in a new bag and snipped a bigger hole. It worked much better and was so much faster!
I think they look like peanut butter kisses…very cute. Then I put another cracker on top and got ready to do some chocolate dipping!!
The recipe says to use chocolate almond bark for the coating, but I couldn’t find that at the grocery store. I decided to use candy melts because I used them when I made cake pops and they were so easy!
Just pour them in a bowl,
Microwave the chocolate for a few seconds and you have chocolaty, melty, wonderfulness.
I let the chocolate cool a little and started coating the sandwiches.
While I dipped the cookies into the chocolate, I gave little Jack the empty peanut butter container so he’d stop begging.
After a few minutes, I had these beauties:
It takes about 20 minutes for the chocolate to set and then you can EAT THEM ALL!
(I know my hair is f*cked up and G’s hand is ashy…please stop staring.)
Well, we didn’t actually eat them all and Lindsey will be getting a bag of these fabulous treats today, what a lucky b*tch.
