Ritz Peppermint Kisses (so simple!)

I'm just wild about the ideas we get at our weekly Weekend Potluck party!

This is one of those quick and easy, make-as-many-or-few-as-you want kind of 'recipes'.  This recipe begins in the microwave for ease. 

Thanks to Quinn at Dad What's 4 Dinner for sharing with us  He takes awesome photos too! How blessed his family is to have him enjoying time in their kitchen.
They sure do eat good over there.  Please be sure to take time to visit Quinn and his awesome compilation of deliciousness being shared there. 

I had just a few candy kisses leftover from another project, so I just made
a plateful to add to plates I'm putting together for the neighbors. 

They're pretty and oh so yummy!  It's hard to guess there's actually
crackers under that chocolate.  

Quinn used white chocolate to dip them in...I think that's prettier, but I already had melted some chocolate, so that's what I went with.

Enjoy! 


RITZ PEPPERMINT KISSES 

2 sleeves Ritz crackers (about 70)
1 med. bag Hershey's chocolate kisses, unwrapped
1# pkg. white or chocolate almond bark
4 large candy canes, unwrapped & chopped into small pieces


Place a layer of crackers on a microwave safe plate. (You want them all to be flat). Top each cracker with a kiss.  Microwave for about 1 minute on high, checking every 20 seconds. 

When chocolate begins to melt, remove plate from microwave and top with another cracker. Press down lightly being careful not to crush cracker or to push chocolate outside of the cracker. (Can microwave a few more seconds if you feel the need).  Repeat with remaining crackers. Cool to room temperature. 

Melt almond bark according to package directions.  Using two forks, or tongs, dip cracker sandwiches into melted chocolate, pushing off the fork with the second fork. Sprinkle with crushed peppermint. Allow to cool and set up.
(I place mine in the garage to cool cause it's hard to wait!) 

Makes 35 little 'sandwiches'
