I didn’t plan on posting again until after Christmas but here I am squeezing out one more post. It was COLD yesterday morning when we woke up and very foggy. Thankfully Lee got to work from home, which meant I got to sit down to drink my coffee while he snuggled our kids.
Why are they still in bed? Oh because our house was 63 degrees when we got up! Our heat worked for a total of about twelve hours before “breaking” again. Thankfully the repairman came shortly after lunch and was able to get us running again. Apparently, the two problems we have had they are seeing a lot in new construction homes where things may not have been installed the best. HOPEFULLY this time it is going to stay working and all the kinks have been fixed.
Now the title of this post is Easy Christmas Treat…so let’s get to that!
Lee doesn’t ask for much, ever. When I was listing out all the Christmas treats and food I planned on making I asked Lee if there was anything he wanted. He asked for dipped peanut butter crackers like his Mom always makes. It was really my pleasure to make those for him. He really doesn’t ever ask for anything and I love to make him things that I know he will enjoy.
I am sharing in case you are looking for a last minute Christmas treat. This is a crowd pleaser in our family and bonus…it is the easiest ever! You could always up the Christmas factor by adding red or green sprinkles or coloring your almond bark. I took the quickest and easiest route and did neither 🙂
1 package vanilla or chocolate almond bark
Melt the almond bark in a double boiler over simmering water.
Spread peanut butter over Ritz crackers and make a sandwich.
Dip crackers in melted almond bark, turning to coat.
Let cool on wax paper to allow almond bark to harden and enjoy!
That is it for me before Christmas. I still have gifts to wrap, food to cook and memories to make! If you are traveling this Christmas I pray that you have a safe journey. See you all back here soon!
