Total Time: 15 minutes, plus time to set up
Yield: as many as you want
- peanut butter, any type you like it fine. I used Trader Joe's natural peanut butter.
- buttery crackers
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 Tbsp shortening
- Put about 1 teaspoon of peanut butter on your cracker.
- Put another cracker on top. Make as many as you would like. The peanut butter I used was a natural type, so it's a little looser. I froze my "sandwiches" for about an hour to firm up before dipping in chocolate. But, if your peanut butter is firmer, you could skip this step.
- Melt chocolate chips and shortening. Start by heating in microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. If needed, heat another 30 seconds, til melted.
- Dip peanut butter sandwiches in chocolate. Place on wax paper. Let chocolate harden up. Enjoy!
