White Chocolate Peanut Butter Thingys

Yes, those are miniature shamrocks. Yes, this is another leftover recipe from my St. Patrick's Day shindig (and yes, after this post, there will still be yet one more St. Patrick's Day recipe, but after that one, you'll be spared again till next year).

I'm a huge fan of what some people might call... white trashy appetizers. Bring on the Ruffles and french onion dip from a metal can, give me a tray full of little smokies wrapped in bacon and baked in brown sugar, and whatever you do, please don't forgot the sausage balls. Can I get an Amen?

Seriously, though... some things can be both dead simple and wicked tasty. And this is one of those things. They are crunchy and sweet and salty. They are portable and can be made ahead of time and everyone loves them. I have to admit... for this party, I bought Whole Wheat Ritz (for shame!) and you couldn't even tell. Next time you're having a party or going to a pot luck, whip up a batch of these babies. I promise everyone will love them.

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Thingys. (Feel free to make up your own name).
Beware: Crack has nothing on these puppies. They are super sweet, super crunchy, and super addictive. If you're really pressed for time, you could always use pre-made peanut butter sandwiches and dip them into the melted almond bark, but once you make them completely from scratch, you'll never go back to the pre-packaged peanut butter and crackers again.


Butter Crackers (like ritz)
Peanut Butter
White Almond Bark

Melt your almond bark according to package directions and lay out a piece of wax paper. Prepare the peanut butter cracker sandwiches and dunk and coat them in the melted almond bark. Place on wax paper to harden.

Oh you can definitely get an amen from me. All of those apps sound delicious. Ruffles with ranch, hello...that's not trashy, it's classic. And these "thingys," well, they look divine. They looook like I could pop waaay too many of them! Delish!
