Christmas is well on its way now, with only 10 days left....I wish these 10 days could just drag by slowly because I love this season. This past weekend, we came home from church, and I just decided to make some candy. These two recipes I'm sharing are quick, easy recipes that only took me about an hour to make, and that's with doubling one of them. So, enjoy, and link up your favorite Christmas candy recipes below!:)
2-3 packs of Ritz-like crackers
Chocolate Almond Bark
Take your crackers, and make sandwiches out of 2 crackers and peanut butter. Fill up 1-2 cookie sheets with these, however many you want to make. Then melt your almond bark in a saucepan, adding just a tablespoon or so of shortening (we use butter shortening); the shortening just helps to stretch your chocolate and make it slightly thinner. Make sure to stir your almond bark, so that it doesn't scorch. Once it's melted, dip your peanut butter cracker sandwiches in the chocolate. Then chill in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes or so. Enjoy!
FYI: I used one package of almond bark for both of these recipes, and I still had some left over....
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 Tbsp. margarine, softened
1 lb. chocolate confectionary coating (like almond bark)
Mix first three ingredients well, and shape into balls. Place on cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Chill for 30 minutes or until firm. Dip balls in chocolate coating, and chill for another 15-30 minutes. Yield: 2 dozen.
