Casanova's Cracker Delights

Cracker Delight

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)-- I discovered this treat while living in Texas in 2007, a twist on a childhood snack favorite: peanut butter cracker sandwiches. I noticed stores selling chocolate-covered pretzels, so I wondered how chocolate covered cracker sandwiches would taste. I just so happened to be around the Christmas season when my significant other and I bought a block of chocolate almond bark, melted it, and dipped these sandwich crackers in them. The outcome was total delectable delight: a wonderful mix of salty, sweet, and creamy.

These delights became a hit with colleagues in our respective workplaces, and we brought these treats back with us to family and friends in Tallahassee the following year. The frosty-covered treats fit in perfectly with the holiday season festivities and have been a delicious addition to the dessert offerings of family dinners and office parties alike. I hope you’ll find these easy-to make treats a delight in your home, too.

You’ll need:

Chocolate or White Chocolate melting almond bark

Ritz crackers

Peanut butter

Prepare a number of peanut butter cracker “sandwiches”. If you do not have a candy melter, place a pan with water in it on stove, and place an empty sauce pan on top. Put heat on medium, and allow water to boil slowly in order to heat the sauce pan up. Melt appropriate amount of almond bark inside the sauce pan. Be careful not to have heat up too high; you don’t want to burn or compromise the chocolate. Once melted, use tongs to dip each cracker sandwich into the melted almond bark, enough to adequately cover the cracker sandwich. Swiftly place coated sandwich on sheet of wax paper and allow to cool.

You can also dress coated crackers with candy sprinkles, chopped nuts, or other toppings as desired.
