I admit it. Chocolate is necessary. P.E.R.I.O.D.
I made these Chocolate Peanut Butter Saltines yesterday afternoon JUST BECAUSE I wanted something chocolate. I did consider eating the milk chocolate chips directly out of the bag, saving time, but decided I wanted chocolate AND salt. This is a variation of a recipe given to me by a friend (Elaine), her version also had an additional layer of caramelized sugar/butter.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Saltines
(1) sleeve of Saltine crackers (with salt)
(1) 12 ounce bag of milk chocolate morsels
(1) 10 ounce bag of peanut butter morsels
Line cookie sheet (my cookie sheet is 12 x 18 inches, so I use more than a sleeve of crackers) with parchment paper. Lay crackers SALT SIDE DOWN, edge to edge, on the parchment paper. Melt milk chocolate morsels, then spread over crackers. Sprinkle with Kosher salt. Put in fridge for 20 minutes to set chocolate. Melt peanut butter morsels, spread over chocolate layer. Sprinkle with Kosher salt. Put in fridge for 30 – 60 minutes (depending on your patience!) to set both layers. Remove from fridge, break into pieces (you pick the size). Can be stored in the fridge or freezer.
