In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

I tried to take a picture from the screened in porch but the flash reflects off the screen. The sun was setting and it looked so cold I was trying to capture that. Well on to the cookies I made today

I am not sure what these are called I started making them about 3 years ago. I never had them while I live in Washington but they are popular here in the mid-west and so-so easy.

you will need Ritz crackers, peanut butter and almond bark

lay out your crackers, I usually get 3 1/2 dozen
apply the peanut butter and top with second cracker

now dip in the melted almond bark or you could use real chocolate or any chocolate
I use two forks and shake a little before putting them on the wax paper lined cookie sheet

they really are quite good. My son-in-law likes them so I make them for him, but we all enjoy a few. I was thinking of trying Oreo's next year with different kinds of chocolate and maybe some mint or flavoring. I really like the chocolate covered Oreo's at Christmas time

I also made choclate drizzled caramel corn but it wasn't quite ready to show so I will post tomorrow. After shopping at Harry and David (a gourmet store) I thought I would try and copy some of the things they have that my family likes. The store is 90 miles from where I live so I don't get there often and you can save a lot of money if you do it yourself, which I enjoy a lot.

Thanks for this recipe. It's not one I'm familiar with and it sounds very tasty. Your photo looks soooooo cold! Hope you have a good evening.

Hmm, I have never heard of this recipe before and it sounds un- appetizing to me ( I am not a big fan of Ritz crackers), but I know you and the rest of the family know a good cookie when you taste one, so maybe someone will make them for me to taste!I think your other ideas about cookies appeal to me more...and I LOVE your home made caramels.( hint, hint)

Kathy- I thought the same as you but they are good if you like chocolate and peanubutter. It is a sweet and salty that seems to go together.

Someone brought something similar to church yesterday morning. She used mini Ritz/PB crackers and dipped them in white chocolate. They were quite good. Well.....what cookie isn't? :>
