Here it is, another super-easy Holiday recipe for you!
Anna and I whipped these together this morning. From start to finish, these took about one hour and I can not stop eating them. But since they’re so easy, I will be making more.
They are so good.
This is what you need:
Grab a butter knife and make peanut butter sandwiches. I’m not going to lie, this really is so simple, uses just a few ingredients and there’s no need to turn on the oven but it can be pretty tedious.
Fortunately, I have a lovely helper, who was willing to take a break from playing Barbies to come and help her Mama.
She attempted the sandwiches, but we figured out the best way to do it was for me to spread the peanut butter on the bottom cracker and she would place the cracker on top.
Make sure you keep the flat side of the crackers facing out. (hint: the more peanut butter you use, the tastier the cookie.)
In the meantime, take the almond bark and cut it up into pieces.
You want to melt the almond bark. I use a double boiler because I like the consistency and the consistency. (does that make sense?) You can microwave the bark, just be sure to take it out often to stir while melting, do not overcook and about halfway through dipping the sandwiches, you’ll want to place back in the microwave to keep it from becoming to thick and cold.
Brian helped take a few photos. He took one of Anna and I. (yes, her apron is an Anthropologie towel clipped to an ugly-ish apron using binder clips. So what?)
Once the bark is nice and melted, you’ll want to dip the sandwiches completely and place on a cooled cookie sheet. I definitely recommend placing the cookies on wax paper. Just trust me, it will make your life easier.
I recently purchased a candy dipping tool set by Wilton. I bought it at Micheal’s, it cost less than $10 and let me tell you, it made this process much easier.
However, for years I’ve used forks and spoons and it works just fine. So, you need not be fancy. (see binder clips.)
Once you’re done dipping, place the tray in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. (feel free to decorate with sprinkles, etc, I prefer leaving these clean and simple. Feels super festive to me on a super cute plate.)
And then you’re done.
One pack of almond bark should cover about 50 sandwiches.
And then you’ll eat one and then you’ll agree with me that these are incredibly delightful.
I store these cookies in the refrigerator. I have no idea how long you should store them because they never last more than 8 minutes in my house.
I’m off to make another batch.
(Santa plate is from this Etsy shop, I could NOT be happier with this purchase and it’s not the only thing I bought, but the other item is a secret, but it’s equally awesome.)
