Oh my goodness these are wonderful! If you love the peanut butter chocolate combination, you will definitely love these!  I made several batches of these during Christmas.  I like to have them on hand for the family to eat during the holidays and I also packaged them up into plastic gift bags for giving.  They are easy to make and if you are looking to make a homemade chocolate candy for your valentine, these would certainly fit the bill.

Ingredients:

1 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)

2 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup melted margarine (1 stick)

1 family size box Wheat Thin crackers

1 pkg. chocolate almond bark

Directions:

Mix peanut butter, powdered sugar, and melted butter together in a bowl.  Stir until smooth.IMG_1625_1_1 IMG_1626_1_1

Place a dollop of the peanut butter mixture on each cracker (save half for the tops).IMG_1627_1_1

Then place a cracker on the top, pressing down gently to make little peanut butter/cracker sandwiches.IMG_1628_1_1 IMG_1630_1_1

Break up the almond bark into a microwave safe bowl and follow the directions on the package to melt.IMG_1632_1_1

Stir until smooth, then begin to dip the peanut butter crackers.IMG_1633_1 IMG_1634_1 IMG_1635_1 IMG_1637_1

Place the chocolate covered candies on waxed paper and allow to dry until the chocolate is set.IMG_1639_1Store in an airtight container, but they usually don’t last long enough to have to store!  Enjoy.
