An {Easy & Tasty} Holiday Tradition!

{Easy, no-bake}
White Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Cracker Cookies

Who here loves dessert the most during dinner?
*Raises hand*
I certainly do.
But what I even like more than dessert, is an EASY dessert to make!
Especially, no-bake. Am I right?

When I was young my mom made these 
White Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Cracker Bites

I was asking about them the other day, and remembering how 
YUM they are, and also, easy to make. 

For today's blog, I thought I'd share a little Holiday tradition in the kitchen.
Featuring my mom Chantale, and myself!

Here is the Intro, and a little about the cookies....




Recipe:
1 lb White Chocolate Pieces (Milk or Dark can be sub.)
Creamy peanut butter
Grape Jelly
1 Box Ritz Crackers
1 or 2T Paramount Crystals or Crisco 
(obviously crystals are a bit healthier)

Directions:
You're going to first take the Ritz Crackers and make mini PBJ Sandwiches
Then
Melt Chocolate with crystals in a double boiler (turn off heat after melted)
*Make sure, that you aren't continuing to cook heat, but be quick with the sandwiches because the chocolate will set. 
Dip each cookie in melted chocolate and tap off excess
Dry on waxed paper
Refrigerate to cool and set
Store in air tight container for up to one week
Yields 36 cookies.

We had a little help from Ella and Sadie in the kitchen.

Some people do just peanut butter, we added jelly too.
