Because I have two 4 year olds, I am always on the look out for recipes that they would be able to help me with easily. Sometimes it’s easier said and done, but I ran across this one in a Taste of Home Magazine and added an extra ingredient so all three of us had a job to do.
I wasn’t sure how the crackers would do with the chocolate, but they are surprisingly very good. It gives the cookie a wonderful crunch before you get hit with the peanut butter marshmallow-y goodness. And of course anything dipped in chocolate is going to be delicious. Add a few green or red sprinkles and you have festive addition to your cookie jar or a great gift for teachers, friends and family.
