Christmas Goodies

Christmas time is sneaking up on us and even though we tend to keep Christmas pretty low key, there are still extra festivities that keep us busy. One thing that I try to do every year is make a few goodies to pass out to a few of our neighbors. This is what we made this year.
I don't really know the name of these things, they aren't really cookies but they aren't really candy either. The girls decided they should be called Snowflake Crunch because our crackers were shaped like snowflakes. I thought that sounded like a great name. :) Recipes for these are floating all over Pinterest but I got mine off of this blog. They are super easy to make and all you need is 3 or 4 ingredients.
-Ritz crackers
-Peanut butter
-Dipping chocolate
-Marshmallow cream (optional)
Start by spreading peanut butter on a cracker and if you use marshmallow cream, spread that on another one and then put then put the two together. Other wise, just put peanut butter on one and then add a top like you see in this picture. 
The girls had fun putting hats on all of them.
Here they are, all ready to be dipped in chocolate...
I don't have a double broiler so I put water in a big pot, put a smaller pot in the water, and then put  the chocolate in the small pot. This melts the chocolate without having to worry about it burning.
The happy baker...
  Once the chocolate is melted enough you can start dipping the crackers and then lay them  out on wax paper.
And that's it... they are super easy to make!! 
The girls had fun making them and even more fun eating them!!
And then we were off to visit some of the neighbors!!
Glory to God on the highest, and on earth peace, good will towards men. Luke 2:14
