I just made the Ritz crackers w/PB dipped in chocolate - received rave reviews!! I just put the entire cracker into the melted chocolate and used tongs to make sure it's coated and to take it out with. Very easy. I also made some with the large cheese crackers, but they haven't set yet.

BTW I had never heard of almond bark before this thread. I managed to find it at WalMart and I think it's the greatest stuff ever! You learn something new every day!! Thanks for all of the great ideas and recipes.

Pour butter mixture over graham crackers. Put in the oven
Bake 3-6 minutes until bubbly.
Remove from oven. Cool slightly. Spinke on toppings as desired (I used crushed pecans, semi-sweet chocolate chips and heath brickle bits.
Cool completely. Breal each cracker into 4 sections.
Makes 48 squares.(rectangles)

This is horribly addictive. I made these saturday night to package for gifts and my family ate a whole pan already. Don't say I didn't warn you!
I just made these and they are amazing!!!!!! After I removed them from the oven I sprinkled with some chocolate chips and chopped almonds. I need to go buy more graham crackers to make another batch. I don't think this batch will make it to the cookie platters I am planning to give away. "horribly addictive" is an understatement!

I haven't read the whole thread yet, but I thought I'd add my own easy dessert. Every Christmas, I get 2 or 3 bags of the Old Fashioned Creme Drops. They're the chocolate drops with the white center. I pour them in a bowl and melt them in the microwave. I add a huge serving spoon of peanut butter to the mix, and pour it in a pan lined with wax paper. I usually do 2 pkgs. for an 8X8 pan. Let it cool, Voila! Fudge! You could also add nuts if you wanted, but it sets up very quickly, so you may have to keep microwaving it when you add things.

LOL! Sorry, but I just can't envision dipping an entire cracker sandwich in chocolate without making a huge mess of myself!
We usually just use a fork and flip the cracker around in the chocolate and take out, set on wax paper when they are done.

Now for my dumb question, I wanted to make the Thin Mints ones, but for the life of me can't find actual Peppermint Oil that isn't the extract. Where would I find this?

Here's a great treat that is fun to make with kids:


Rudolph Cookies

4 (1 ounce) chocolate candy coating squares
96 pretzel sticks
1 (16 ounce) package Nutter Butter cookies
64 M&M's in green, blue, or brown chocolate pieces
32 red M&M's or Red Hots

Microwave chocolate candy coating in a small shallow glass dish at HIGH 3 minutes, stirring once.
Place 2 pretzel sticks in peanut butter filling of each sandwich cookie, forming large antlers. Break remaining pretzel sticks in half, and place 1 half pretzel stick next to each long pretzel stick, forming smaller antlers.
Dip 1 side of green, blue or brown M&M's in melted candy coating, and place on cookies for the eyes. Dip 1 side of of red M&M's in candy coating, and place on cookies for the noses.

**My pretzel sticks were too large to just stick in the peanut butter filling so I gently separated the cookies, dabbed chocolate inside, put the pretzels in the chocolate and put the cookies back together. I also dabbed a little chocolate over the rest of the inside of the cookie to help hold it together.

I also found a microwaveable pouch from Betty Crocker in the baking section at Walmart that I used for the chocolate. It has a tip on the end so it's easy to dab the chocolate right where you need it.

Here's a picture of the pretzel wreaths we made that were posted earlier in this thread:


My DS (almost 5) and I had a blast making these!

I couldn't find it either so I just used peppermint extract (about 1/4 tsp.) and it worked fine. They really do taste like Girl Scout cookies. I used the snowflake shaped Ritz crackers, they turned out really cute.

[QUOTE=looo33]Here's some super easy appetizer/snacky things.......


Chili and Cheese dip
Spread 1 8oz package of cream cheese in the bottom of a 8x8 cake pan.
Spread 1 can of Hormel chili on the top
Sprinkle shredded chedder chhes over that and bake at 350 until bubbly and cheese is melted...I think about 15 minutes.
Dip tortilla chips into this and enjoy.


LOVE THIS! This is my favorite appetizer at family events. My boyfriend also makes this for his work events, and it's usually gone in minutes. Definitely make it using these directions, however...and not the way they show it on the philly cream cheese commercials (leaving the cream cheese in a brick then just dumping the chili on top...um, NO!)
