Honey Peanut Butter Dipped Ritz Cookies

Chocolate and peanut butter is a classic combination that is loved by so many.  Peanut butter cracker sandwiches is another thing that is timeless and that is enjoyed by people of all ages.  There's just something so good about that combination; sweet, crunchy peanut butter on top of a flaky, salty Ritz cracker, it hits all the right notes.
Now what if you were to take all of the above; chocolate, peanut butter with a tough of honey, and crackers and combine them?  Pretty amazing, right?  These are so simple to make and they provide you with a quick and delicious dessert that's ready in no time. 
These dipped Ritz are also ideal for individuals who want to give their neighbors, friends and co-workers something sweet but aren't so into baking.  With these cookies you're able to give them a sweet treat without even turning on the oven.
This takes those classic peanut butter cracker sandwiches and envelopes them in a delicious milk chocolate blanket.  I topped them with a pinch of sea salt and this addition not only adds another layer of that salty sweet that I love but it also dresses it up just a bit.  This is a great option for the Christmas cookie platters, to wrap up in a cute cellophane bag, or to snack on at your Christmas gathering.  They are also a perfect option for your Christmas cookie swap.

Honey Peanut Butter Dipped Ritz Cookies
Ingredients:

24 Ritz crackers
3/4 Cup peanut butter, I used crunchy
4 Tbsp honey
6-8 Oz chocolate
Sea salt, for topping, optional

Directions:

Chop the chocolate and place in a microwave safe dish.  Heat in 20 second intervals, stirring after each, until the chocolate is melted. Once the chocolate is melted stir vigorously for 30 seconds.

Place the peanut butter and honey in a medium bowl and stir to combine.

Line a work surface with wax paper.  Place 12 of the crackers, flat side up, on the wax paper.  Place one tablespoon of the peanut butter mixture on each cracker.  Place the other crackers on top of the peanut butter and press lightly. 

Dip each sandwich in the melted chocolate, tap to remove excess chocolate and place on the wax paper.  Sprinkle with sea salt.  Repeat with remaining crackers.
