Last Minute Treat

It's a last minute party and you want to take something quick and yummy. All you have in the house is graham crackers, peanut butter, oreos or some other cookies and a bag of chocolate morsels. You can go several ways. You could just melt the chocolate and partially dip the cookies and have something like this...



Or you can make sandwich cookies out of the graham crackers and the peanut butter and break them into "individual" servings. You know how there are four crackers to a panel... that will make the next step much easier. Melt the chocolate in the microwave, or with a double boiler and dip the oreo cookies and the peanut butter crackers into the chocolate and cover them completely. Place them on wax paper to set up and you have such a yummy treat that people will swear you spent all day in the kitchen. Sorry that I couldn't find a picture of them, but they will look so good, that folks might even think you purchased them here.

I first found out about these two treats in a candy shop at the mall years ago and decided that I could duplicate this at home. Now they are all the rage at Gourmet Shops and I even noticed a blog called The Recipe Girl, that has a similar treat. You could really dress them up for the holidays.

Well, that's all for tonight. Stay warm and cozy and try to keep your stress level down by taking the easy way out when looking for a last minute treat.

That is a great idea and I will use it. I just have to get the chocolate. I am sending wishes your way for a very Merry Christmas. We are having the kids over for Christmas Eve, so Christmas Day should be very quiet. I think I will grab the journal and do a little drawing, it's been a while since I've done that.

That cookie looks yummy! Thanks for the sweet comments about my new Granddaughter! I got to hug & kiss on her for the last 4 days, but had to come home today. I cried when I told them all good-bye. I will miss them so much. Hope you have a MERRY CHRISTMAS! Hugs***Rena
