If we’re going to be friends, there’s something you should know about me. I’m a chocoholic. I have a raging, untamable, out-of-control sweet tooth and I’m pretty shameless about it. {My husband doesn’t share my affinity for sweets, but it doesn’t stop me from baking like it’s my job, because well… more for me}.

If you love dessert more than you love shoes, we’re soul sisters.

This little sweet and savory recipe is super easy, and you only need three ingredients and the most basic of kitchen skills. In fact, I don’t even think you can call it a “recipe.” If you can make a PBJ and you know how to properly dunk an Oreo, you’ve got this one in the bag.

Read more for the scoop.

You’ll Need:
Ritz crackers (or similar salted rounds)
Peanut Butter
Semi-sweet chocolate (I prefer Ghirardelli baking bars, but chips work, too!)

PBCookie1 PBCookie2
Spread peanut butter on a cracker, then smoosh it into a lovely little PB cracker sandwich.
Easy so far, right?

PBCookie3 PBCookie4
Melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring between each to prevent scorching.
Are you still with me?

Now… drop the cracker sandwich into the chocolate. And flip it over to cover the other side.
Hope no one’s feeling too overwhelmed at this point.

PBCookie6 PBCookie7
Fish it out with a fork and let the excess chocolate drip off (or don’t, it’s whatever) and lay them on a sheet of foil or wax paper. Then pop them in the fridge until the chocolate hardens.

Even husband knocked a few of these back {shhh… don’t tell him I told you.}
