Here is a quick treat that would make a wonderful edible gifts for the holidays!

Candy Coated Peanut Butter Crackers

Just a few supplies is all you need to make these tasty treats. I used Ritz crackers, creamy peanut butter, white candy coating and some rainbow coarse sugar (or color of your choice). A half pound of white candy coating will coat at least one dozen cracker sandwiches.

First begin melting the candy coating. Place candy discs in an oven safe bowl. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. When oven is heated turn the oven OFF. Place bowl of candy in the oven for 10 minutes.

While candy is melting make the peanut butter sandwiches. Spread peanut butter between two crackers (tops to the middle) and smooth the sides. You don’t need much peanut butter ( I was a little generous —but if you like peanut butter go for it).

Let the sandwich go for a swim in the candy!

Lift the sandwich out with a fork or tongs. Firmly tap the handle of the fork against the top edge of the bowl to remove extra candy from the cracker sandwich.

While cookies are still wet sprinkle with some colorful holiday coarse sugar. Allow cookies to harden on wax paper. In about 10 minutes you have a sweet treat!

  2. Just a thought!! This won’t be a pretty if you are giving them as a gift but for yourself at home it works great. Whenever I dip something like this, pretzels, oreos or dried apricots I only dip half of the item. That way you can hold onto the cracker, etc. and not have to fish it out of the chocolate. It makes the process alot easier.

We make these with the miniture ritz that you can buy with the peanut butter already in them its a little easier you dont have to spread the peanut butter and they are so fun and cute to do weve done food coloring, but ive never tried the sprinkles, but that sounds awsome. The kids just love the little minitures.
