|This is a bonus tip you can add flavoring of your choice today the boys said they wanted|
to add vanilla so the did
Depending on the flavoring such as the oils only add a drop, then if you add an extract add 1/4 tsp.

Yesterday I received this awesome email from a man who is the social media for Kraft foods asking if I would like to enter my "Putting on the Ritz" recipe from December Recipes. Well I was so excited I could hardly think. Could you believe that.... was in shock...lol! Had to let everyone know last night too. Thanks Ritz!! Well I did enter that recipe......it is posted here, so stop by and rate it!!! I already know several of the bloggers made this sweet recipe back in December because they sent me the emails....thanks everyone.
He wanted to let all the bloggers know they could enter in the wonderful contest. The Ritz Cracker Facebook Page has all the details...and guess who is the "man" Guy Fieri..yeppers!! Love love love that guy...he has two wonderful cookbooks too and you know it, I have them. I also have the dvd's from the show. We have even been to several of the diners. Last night I even saw the advertisement for the contest....talk about sweeeet!!! So today to promote the contest on Facebook, I added another way to make these fabulous "Putting on the Ritz" snacks. The prize packages are AWESOME~~~We make them all year not just for the winter holidays.
Wanted to include the recipe again...jic your new to the blog.....
Putting on the Ritz2 sleeves of Ritz cracker
1 cup of peanut butter no need to measure just spread on and sandwich
1 whole bark of chocolate (white or dark)
Wilton sprinkles or choice
Chop chocolate into small pieces using a knife and place in microwave safe dish, spread peanut butter onto crackers sandwich style, melt chocolate in microwave starting at 1 minute then 30 seconds then 15 second intervals stirring between each cycle of cooking. Once melted stir well at this stage you could even add flavoring oils if you chose to...I don't on these usually but have added peanut butter oil flavoring but really no need. You can use candy dipping tongs but trust me your fingers work just fine and the children will like that too...lol! Now lay on tray or Parchment paper sprinkle with sprinkles of choice. Can place in freezer to harden or just sit on counter until chocolate is firm. Package for gift giving or enjoy!! Super easy!!
The boys certainly enjoyed today and I think Coop could have eat more, but I keep them to one and a small glass of milk for their snack...they love them. So now enter you recipe...and can't wait to hear about it. Take Care and have a sweet weekend. Cyber Hugs, Dawn Gallop
