MMMmmm Monday - Sweet and Salty treats

Kellie and I must be on a Ritz kick. Both of us have made recipes the last few weeks involving Ritz crackers. These are by far my favorite crackers. I love the rich and buttery taste. Sometimes I have a few with a slice of cheese and sometimes I make these delicious goodies with them.
Behold the Ritz Peanut Butter Treats!
Several years ago a friend of mine brought over these delightful treats. The first bite I couldn't quite tell what they were. I knew there was peanut butter and obviously it was dipped in chocolate {cant go wrong there} but what was that crunchy goodness. Well she explained that it was 2 Ritz crackers. I couldn't believe it. SO DELISH! And talk about easy! These can be made in under a half hour.
Start by spreading CHUNKY peanut butter on one Ritz cracker and then place the other cracker to make a sandwich. It doesn't have to be chunky, but I think it tastes better. All I had on hand to make them today was creamy and I definitely can say I prefer the chunky!
Next, melt almond bark (or any dipping chocolate) and dip sandwiches in it. I like to use a fork when I dip. 
 Then I tap away the excess. Just like I do when dipping my Oreo Truffles
Place on wax or parchment paper to let dry
I dizzled some chocolate on them to make them look more festive. As you can see I tried to make these Red, White and Blue for the 4th of July and I failed miserably.... Pink, White and Blue ? Grrr....
I also decided to make some {semi} healthy treats. I sandwiched 2 slices of banana with a dab of peanut butter, froze it for a few minutes and then dipped in chocolate. Ok, not quite so healthy with the chocolate so feel free to leave it off. They are yummy either way!

I hope you try these yummy treats and thanks to my friend Pam for sharing this treat with me!
