Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

This is like the easiest recipe in history and is delicious and decadent.  Plus, bonus, they look pretty!  Thank you, almond bark.

1 pkg of almond bark (vanilla or chocolate, either are great with the peanut butter)
1 box of Ritz crackers
1 jar of smooth peanut butter


Use a knife to spread a generous helping of peanut butter on a Ritz cracker, then add another on top to create a sandwich. Squeeze so that the peanut butter is distributed evenly and wipe off any excess peanut butter that might overflow.  Repeat until all the crackers have been used.

Lay out some wax paper and then follow the directions on the package to melt the almond bark in the microwave.

Using a fork, balance one sandwich on the fork, dip in the melted chocolate until covered and then set on the wax paper.  Allow the sandwiches to harden and then inspect them - some of them may need to be dipped a second time, or you can use a knife to fix any imperfections by spreading just a little bit more chocolate on (sometimes there are fork marks on the bottom, I like to cover those up). 

Tips -  If you are making these around the holidays, you can also add sprinkles to the top when the chocolate is drying, or dye the vanilla bark fun colors.  Enjoy!
