THIS WILL MAKE YOUSE VERY HAPPY.
AND ON TOP OF THAT, I'M GIVING AWAY A WONDERFUL BOOK TODAY ON AMAZON!!!!
"Safely Home" my third independent novel (and the first Watkins Ridge book!!!) is FREEEEEEE!!!! Feel free to jump over to Amazon, download the book to your Kindle or Whisper net on your computer (the software is a free download on Amazon) and grab Alex and Cress's wonderful story of coming home to a whole new beginning, a beginning God planned despite Cress's somewhat tough record of BAD CHOICES...
I love that heroine to pieces!!!!
Okay, back to the chocolate dipped amazingness!!!!
Oh, look, spell-check doesn't like my word "AMAZINGNESS" but these are all that and more!!!
First you need to melt chocolate chips or wafers or white chocolate chips for dipping. Then you use either Ritz crackers or Graham crackers broken in half for your crunchy cookie bottom. Dip them into the delicious melty chocolate and lay them undipped side down on a foil lined pan. Let cool or tuck them in fridge to cool. Don't freeze, freezing will crack the chocolate. It's in a DELICATE, SENSITIVE state right now, like me!!! :)
Take one cup peanut butter. Mix with 2/3 cup powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons butter. Mix thoroughly. When coated crackers are firm, add a teaspoon or so of the peanut butter mix to the uncoated side of the cracker. Then spoon melted chocolate over the peanut butter, letting it drip to the cracker below. Cover the whole cracker side, and then let it cool again.
(the mix I have pictured above is a little different. It has peanut butter, crushed chocolate graham cracker wafers, the powdered sugar and the butter, so it looks funny but it was REALLY GOOD!!!!)
Now, these have the melted Ghirardelli chips spooned over them:
And here is a plate full for my moms to try and give me their opinion!!!!
This is what they looked like inside:
And with the rest of the melted chips I made roasted, salted almond bark:
I mixed in a few hands full of the roasted Wonderful almonds and spread the chocolate/almond mix out on paper. Once it was hard, I broke it apart...
Oh. So. Good!!!!! :)
