christmas cookies

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.

Ingredients:

  • Ritz crackers
  • Peanut butter
  • Chocolate almond bark
  • Vanilla almond bark

Method:

  • 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!

Enjoy!
