I can't believe it's almost Easter! It seems like just last week was St. Patrick's Day...because it was. Easter is kind of a throw-away as far as holidays go. Though there are small gifts, there's no extended time off from work or school and sometimes it's chilly. Once you realize there is no bunny and nobody hides money in plastic eggs for you anymore it just becomes about food, or Jesus coming back to life (if you believe that). After slaving off your winter weight in your home gym, it seems unfair to have another holiday binge. I've never been one to turn my nose up at holiday binges or any occasion that includes candy, so I decided to make some treats to get in the spirit of things. LDP is really on a white trash kick this month...here's another fine example of something you'd see at a church bake sale.
White (trash) Chocolate Takealongs
you will need the following
2 sleeves Ritz (or Savoritz) crackers
1 c peanut butter
1/4 c confectioner's sugar
1 bag white chocolate chips
Step 1: Mix peanut butter and sugar in a bowl. Make cracker sandwiches with peanut butter. Set on parchment lined cookie sheet and chill in freezer.
Step 2: Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler (white chocolate burns really easily). With tongs, dip cracker sandwiches in chocolate and cover on all sides. Set on cookie sheet, repeat until out of crackers.
Step 3: Return to freezer for about 20 minutes. Once completely set, remove cookies. Wrap and give to friends (or eat by yourself).
