Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Crackers
If you’re looking for a special sweet treat to serve at holiday parties or share as edible gifts, these Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Crackers may be just what you’re looking for. They are super easy to make too!
I’ve always said there’s nothing like a good saltine cracker. Sometimes they just hit the spot. Add some peanut butter, and you’ve got a classic go-to snack or lunch for our kids. Add chocolate, and, well … you’ve got pure bliss on your hands. Fancy? Nope. Not so much. Good eats? Definitely.
My husband said I should tell y’all that these Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Crackers are a gourmet marvel. Gourmet? Um … not sure if saltines combined with anything can be categorized as such. Recently I did have the pleasure of enjoying a boatload of amazing gourmet treats in chocolate form on a cruise with Princess Cruises. Incredible desserts! These Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Crackers are much more basic that those were but every bit as satisfying. So while they may not be considered “gourmet,” a marvel? Perhaps so.
If nothing else, it’s a marvel that they require so little effort, with very simple ingredients, to create such a lovely treat. For all the Girl Scout cookie lovers out there, they taste just like Peanut Butter Patties to me. No lie. Try them. Soon. Then share the love with your friends at your next gathering and just see what happens.
I feel I must apologize for the abundance of chocolate dipped things as of late. I am cooking other things that involve no chocolate or dipping whatsoever. Really, I am. But I recently discovered Merckens chocolate, and that, combined with an electric fondue pot, I’ve felt the need to cover things with chocolate. Like a lot. I find myself innocently sitting around, and then think all of a sudden “Hey, I could dip such and so in chocolate.” And so I do. Merckens makes some fantastic melting chocolate. The electric fondue pot is an excellent tool for keeping said chocolate at a constant melty temperature. Plus, if all chocolate isn’t used, or you need to temporarily stop your chocolate dipping production, just turn the fondue pot off, let it cool completely, cover it, and come back to it later when you find more things to dip.
(And nope, this is not a sponsored post of any kind. I just like to share what I learn along the way.)
