Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies


Today I’ve got one of my easiest desserts recipes to share with you!  I first learned to make these in the sixth grade when I was in the Future Homemakers Club (now known as Family Career and Community Leaders of America or FCCLA)

It became an instant favorite of mine, and I immediate went home and shared it with my family.  And it’s been fave easy-fix recipe of mine ever since! Ordinarily I make these around Christmas, but today with the red sprinkles on white chocolate they are a Valentine’s treat!


Recipe for Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies:


1 package of crackers (Ritz or Town House)
1 package almond bark
peanut butter
spinkles (optional)

Directions: Spread peanut butter on to crackers and top with another cracker to make a sandwich.    Amount of peanut butter depends on your preference. I like a thick sandwich, so I’ll put a “glob” of peanut butter (or if you’d like a more technical term, I’d say a tablespoon full…more or less).

After you’ve made all your sandwiches, place almond bark in a microwave bowl and microwave in 15 second increments, stirring in between to prevent sticking. Then dip your sandwich cookies one at time. Retrieve them with a spoon, fork, or candy dipper if you have one.

Add the sprinkles immediately after dipping, as the almond bark will harden very quickly.

If you’re almond bark starts to harden in the bowl before you finished dipping the cookies, heat in in the microwave for an additional 15 seconds.

Place in a container on the counter. You can also store these in the refrigerator if you prefer or freeze them for later.
