I am soooooooooooooooooo so so soooooooo excited about this post for sooooo many reasons! First and for most I get to tell you all a little about my bloggy friend Prudy over at Butter Basil and Breadcrumbs. She has been such a support throughout this whole learning to blog process… we are learning together. Anytime I have a question or concern I always know that I can count on Prudy to help me out, and if she is unsure she does her best to lead me in the right direction. We have both learned that blogging is not an over night success but we know we are on the right track, and in time, this track will lead us to the success that we have been dreaming for. Plus we promised each other a signed copy of our first cook books so we have to make this work… a promise is a promise 😉
Reason number two for being so excited about this post… My midnight snack just got a whole lot TASTIER! when I get hungry at night I always take a round cracker, spread it with peanut butter, sprinkle on a few chocolate chips and a few mini marshmallows ( ok 3.. it has to be 3 mini marshmallows or it is not right! ) then I put it in the microwave till the marshmallows puff up then top it with another round cracker. YUM! Well, Mrs. Prudy whom I mentioned above made this AMAZING looking Hot Chocolate smoothie that she topped with a toasted marshmallow. That’s how my wheels started turning with my crackers with peanut butter & TOASTED Marshmallow dipped in Chocolate… WOW! That’s a mouth full! Try saying that 3 times… no, no, don’t do that to yourself. LOL
Reason number 3 well… just look at that photo! I am in love! Photography has been something that I have been desperately trying to learn and I feel like I nailed it with this one. I am really not trying to brag, really. I am just very excited =)
Now that you have heard my speech lets get to this recipe!
* Recipe is for 16 crackers with peanut butter and TOASTED marshmallow dipped in chocolate…Depending on the brand of crackers you use, 1 sleeve will make about 16 of these.
1 sleeve of round butter crackers ( something like ritz)
8 marshmallows cut in half ( the medium size marshmallows.. not the mini’s and not the jumbo)
6 oz of semi sweet chocolate chips or more depending on the brand used and how many in a sleeve. ( Honestly I would use whatever I have when I make them again.. Dark chocolate, white chocolate..)
Peanut Butter for spreading on the crackers
** You are going to need was paper & foil for this recipe
1.) Spread all 32 crackers with peanut butter, set 16 aside and place the other 16 peanut butter side up on a cookie sheet that has been lined with tin foil.
2.) Cut all 8 marshmallows in half and place one on top of the 16 peanut butter spread crackers on the cookie sheet.
4.) As soon as they come out of the oven take the crackers that have been spread with peanut butter and set aside, and place one on top of each marshmallow.
5.) Set them in the fridge for about 10 – 15 minutes.
6.) Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl ( I add a few drops of veg. oil to it). When melting the chocolate only microwave for 30 seconds at a time stirring each time till chocolate is melted.
7.) Take the foil off of the cookie sheet you used to toast the marshmallows and line it with wax paper ( doing it this way saves a dish!)
8.) Dip the crackers in chocolate one at a time and line them onto the cookie sheet you lined with wax paper.
9.) Refrigerate until chocolate is firm
10.) ENJOY =) =P.
