We leave Christmas Day to have Albin Christmas in Red River, NM! It is suppose to snow…a lot…so yay for a white Christmas. Anyways…back in the day, Zac’s mom use to make these really yummy peanut butter Ritz crackers covered with almond bark, I call them Christmas cookies. Last year we decided to make them a part of our Christmas tradition. And by we, I mean Zac. He made them last year and then again this year. I have to give him photo credit as well.

- Ritz crackers
- Peanut butter
- Chocolate almond bark
- Vanilla almond bark
- Make peanut butter sandwiches by spreading peanut butter between two Ritz crackers (make sure to “break” a couple Ritz with peanut butter for a snack while cooking)
- Heat chocolate almond bark on stove on low heat
- Once melted completely coat peanut butter sandwiches using tongs to flip and recover sandwich from chocolate
- Allow to dry/harden on a cookie sheet (cover in parchment paper for easy cleanup!)
- Meanwhile heat vanilla almond bark on low heat (two squares is plenty for the drizzle on top)
- Sprinkle hardened cookies with vanilla
- Make ahead of time and freeze (We like them better cold/frozen)
We usually make 3 sleeves of cracker sandwiches, because it gets old making all of them. That works pretty evenly for a whole package of almond bark. We have tried making them with the white almond bark and drizzle with chocolate, but we prefer them dipped in chocolate with the white drizzle!
