Butterfinger Bites

Goodness Gracious....We can't have a holiday without a chocolate post now can we? 

This is so simple and quick - any time of the year.

Two of my granddaughter's and I spent an afternoon last week creating and crafting, and this was the first thing we put together.

So I figured I should share it you can start enjoying it NOW!

The girls put the peanut butter between the crackers and then took turns dipping them in the melted chocolate.  They did a great job.

When I read this post at Debbi Does Dinner...Healthy and LowCal
I saw it on my phone just before I was headed into WalMart.


I marched right to the cracker aisle and pick up a box of yummy Cheez-Its crackers and could hardly wait for the opportunity to make these little gems.

Last fall I made the pan of butterfinger candies melting candy corn, mixing with peanut butter, and loved those Homemade Butterfinger Candy Bar Bites.

This adds just a little more crunch - a bit more like the real thing,
so even though it isn't a perfect substitute for a favorite candy bar, this is a great little snack anytime.

I love that you can make one or twenty...or forty! 

Be careful though or you can easily eat them all yourself!

So be sure to make lots because they will be devoured quickly!
(the members of your family may want to enjoy them too=)

Maybe if you be real good, the Easter Bunny will put some in your basket! ;-}

(Then again, maybe you know where he keeps his 'stash' too huh?)


Box of Cheezits or any other box of cheese crackers

Peanut Butter

chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate)

(about 12 ozs)

Spread some peanut butter on one side of a cracker. Place another cracker on top.
 Microwave chocolate in a bowl in the microwave (or double boiler - I added a little bit of Crisco), stir often. Dip the crackers in the melted chocolate and cover completely.

Set on waxed paper on a cookie sheet. Then put them in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to get the chocolate to set up.

We set ours out in the garage to chill while we got busy doing some craft projects...I will share those one day soon.
