Crackers and peanut butter is a favorite, you can buy them in just about every store you go to. My problem is I hate to spend money on something I can make at home in very little time. So using Ritz crackers and your favorite type of peanut butter creates the Nabs (regional treat) that you can spend up to a dollar for. Insert my problem. I have a huge sweet tooth, and although I love salty foods I'm not always satisfied until I get that sweetness.

Most women can understand that at certain times we will do anything for a sweet and salty treat. So one day during my "I will kill for chocolate" moods, I started tearing apart the cabinets looking for anything to fill that void. I found some crackers, peanut butter, and chocolate chips. Hmmmm, a crunchy Reese cup was my first thought. Threw everything together and within 15 minutes I was eating and savoring the tastes. My family was very happy with the treat as they loved the taste but most of all they knew it was safe to come out now that I had my fix...LOL. These little bites are great for gifts if you wanted to do your own chocolate assorted box, parties or just a snack for yourself and the family.

Below is the very short and easy way I threw these little bites of heaven together.

What you will need:

A small saucepan or pot
1 bag of chocolate chips
1 sleeve of Ritz crackers
Jar of favorite peanut butter

Pour the chocolate chips into your pot and on low heat let them melt. While your waiting on the chips to melt, start spreading your peanut butter on one side of half your crackers, then take another cracker and make a sandwich with them. By now your chocolate chips should be melted and nice and smooth. Place a cracker sandwich in the pot and wiggle it around a bit to get a good layer of chocolate on it. Flip it over with a spoon or fork and coat the other side. Left it out of the pot and place on a plate. After all crackers have been dipped place them either in the fridge for 30 minutes or the freezer for 10 minutes. This allows the chocolate to harden so you can eat them.
