Party Prep: Gluten-Free Choco Covered Peanut Butter Crackers How-To

17 April 2012

Subtitle: I wish these treats had a cutesy name for better blog title potential.

As I've blogged about before, Sistah's wedding is swiftly approaching and the big bachelorette bash is this weekend. We are going sunning and sailing on a nearby lake and I am so excited to see the bitty bride and all of her friends. There are a few other things going on for me this week so I am trying to do anything I can in advance of Sautrday so I am more present and less frantic when I arrive at the lake resort.

Growing up when we would visit our relatives in Kentucky at Christmas, there were always Ritz peanut butter crackers covered in white or milk chocolate and kept in tins around the living room to munch on as we watched basketball. Tessie loved these when we were younger so I thought having them at her shower would be a fun and nostalgic treat that I could also easily make in advance. Some of the ingedients have changed to make them gluten-free, but they are still a great sweet/salty snack!

Choco-Covered Peanut Butter Crackers

Shopping List:
Round Crackers (I use Glutino Gluten-Free Original Flavor)
Peanut Butter - have to represent my favorite PB ever, Peanut Butter Co's The Bees Knees*
1 bag chooclate chips
M&Ms (I chose spring colors to go with our preppy maritime theme)

Step 1: Make your peanut butter crackers by spreading the PB on one cracker and sandwiching a second cracker on top.

If your home is anything like mine, the presence of the peanut butter jar will catch at least one other family member's attention...

Little Child is my favorite sous chef.

Step 2: Melt your chocolate, in either a poor man's double broiler (pictured above) or in the microwave if counter space is a less of a luxury item in your home as it is in ours.

Dip each PB cracker sammy into the melted chocolate and then place it on a sheet of parchment paper. Top each cracker with a festive M&M. Allow the melted chocolate to harden around the cracker. Place the dried crackers in an airtight tupperware container until you are ready to serve.

Such an easy treat that is always impossible to pass up in our family!

Some questions for you:

Do you have a favorite bachelorette memory? What do you prefer for a girls' weekend - relaxing or wild?

What is one sweet treat that you can't live without?
