I have been trying to make nothing but healthy recipes in 2013, but everyone needs a break now and again, and this is a great way to do it. They are quick, easy and you may already have everything in your house to make them.
I used some peanut butter that already have some sugar in it, but if you use natural peanut butter, you can opt to add in a small teaspoon of powdered sugar. And to add insult to unhealthy injury, I put some sprinkles on top of these pups. I couldn’t help it.
To melt the chocolate, I improvised a double boiler by putting water in a pot and putting a smaller pot with the chocolate chips inside the bigger pot. By bringing the water to a low rolling boil on medium-low heat, the chocolate chips melt nice and smoothly and maintain the consistency. Don’t over heat or they will burn. Or you could just use a microwave, but I don’t have one. Or use a double boiler. But I don’t have one of those either.
1 1/4cupsof non-dairy chocolate chips (I used Guittard Semi-Sweet chocolate chips)
1/4-1/2cupof Smooth Peanut Butter
1sleeveof Snack Crackers (like Ritz or Late July)
(optional) topping - sprinkles or crushed nuts
Wax or Parchment Paper
Create peanut butter sandwiches using the peanut butter and crackers. Keep the peanut butter on the thinner side.
Melt the chocolate chips and line a baking tray with wax or parchment paper
Put a small dab of melted chocolate onto the wax paper and put a sandwich on top of it, to coat the bottoms. Then use a spoon to scoop melted chocolate on top and spread it around, until the sandwich is coated.
After coating all the cookies, put the tray into the fridge for 30-45 minutes. Keep chilled until you serve.
