At one of my former jobs, one of my co-workers always brought in these DELICIOUS Cookies...
They are so yummy! I love them. I have not made them until now! I get some of my best inspiration at night as I am laying my head on the pillow to go to sleep! So, as I was falling asleep this little bitty was born...
My Take on a Cookie Bouquet...
* Ritz Crackers (I know crazy, but they are so yummy as this cookie, I promise)
* Creamy Peanut Butter
*Sprinkles (Optional) I added sprinkles to them to give the cute factor, but they do not need them.
They actually taste better without sprinkles on them.
Lay out your Ritz Crackers on wax paper and spread the peanut butter on each cracker. I put the bamboo skewer in the center and added a little extra peanut butter to the center to compensate for the stick.
Mmmm.... Peanut buttery goodness!
*Put your ritz crackers with the peanut butter in the fridge*
This is a very important step. Let them chill for about 20 minutes.
This keeps the peanut butter firm while dipping in the white chocolate
so you don't have a peanut buttery mess!
*While you are waiting you can work on the tin holder!!*
Melt your white chocolate on a medium heat. Once the chocolate has melted, remove it from burner. I use a saucepan with water and a stainless steel bowl that I set on top. This works great! You don't need a special pan to melt the chocolate in.
I just spoon the chocolate onto the cookie. The bamboo skewers are super handy for this step.
Now you can sprinkle the sprinkles onto your cookie... I really wanted to use Ritz in the shape of hearts for Valentine's Day, but they do not have them. All I could find was football shaped Ritz. Darnit! So the sprinkles give it that same cutesy Valentine's Day Flair.
I tried using a stencil for the hearts and that just didn't work with the melted chocolate so I just used my fingers and put the sprinkles on in a -V- and it worked! *Sigh*
Oh aren't they just cute??? Don't worry about the big blob of a cookie to the right, while it is still soft just trace around the shape of the cookie with a toothpick and it will not be a ginormous blob when it hardens!
These Cookies really are so yummy! You should try them! You will love them. They are SO Easy!
