{ Peanut Butter Patties }

I don’t actually know what to call these things.
Peanut Butter Patties?

Sure, that sounds good.
Unless y’all know a better name for them. If so, drop it in comments.

These are quick and easy peasy for a party or bake sale.

Or because you are craving chocolate.
And peanut butter.

Pretty straightforward here.

You’ll need:
Vanilla Wafers
Peanut Butter
Chocolate for Dipping
Chocolate for Decorating (optional)

Choosy moms choose Jif.
Cheap Frugal moms choose What’sOnSale.

Lay down wax paper or parchment paper.
Then spread the peanut buttery goodness on one wafer.

Top with another, then toss into melted chocolate.

Now, when I took these photos I had yet to acquire my new Chocolate Melting Miracle.

So, I used the microwave.

I’ll never go back.

Ever.

If you dip a lot of chocolate, get one.. now

The Wilton Chocolate Pro. I *heart* it bunches. It runs close to $30, but I used a 40% off coupon at JoAnn’s.

Worth every penny.


Alas… this post
Throw your patty into the chocolate. White or regular. You choose.

Scoop and tap with a fork. More on dipping chocolate in this post.

Pretty soon, you’ll have your own little Peanut Butter Patty Army. Allow them to dry.

Then, melt up a little chocolate of another color (or the same color even looks nice), and place into a pastry bag (or a heavy duty Ziploc). Snip a teeeeny bit off the end, and go to town.

Pretties.


Since I had leftover chocolate, which is criminal, I threw in some marshmallows.

And wouldn’t you know it… THOSE were the hit of the night.

People, I try SO hard.

Alright, with this recipe, I don’t really, but I like to be dramatic.

I can’t help it.

These (including the marshmallows) are also great for Holiday gift giving. Actually the marshmallows would be wonderful tied up with a mug, some hot cocoa packets (or coffee), and chocolate dipped plastic spoons.
Throw a candy cane in there too.

Tada!

Instant hit.

  6. Seriously easy. I've also done this with Ritz or Townhouse crackers as well. Gives it a saltier, butterier bite.
