White Chocolate Peanut Butter Crackers

Please excuse the cracker crumbs in the almond bark. This is what happens when children do the baking. It’s totally worth it though. They have such a stinkin’ good time and feel so grown up and special.

This is a little holiday treat that we made growing up, White Chocolate Peanut Butter Crackers. New Years Eve would roll around and we would usually play games with the Glem family and eat all night long. The games usually consisted of Huggermugger, Nertz, Farkle, etc. and us little kids would run wild until midnight when we would bang pots and pans outside. Oh, the neighbors must have hated us. Peggy Glem, the mom and my mother’s dearest friend passed away December 18th and it was quite sudden. Mom is taking it a day at a time, but is going to miss this friend whom she loved as a sister. We are so grateful for Peggy, her influence and mostly for being our mom’s bestest friend. As my mom put it, “making her journey here on earth all that it could be.”

Here we all are in Vancouver, Washington at the funeral last week. Our families have certainly grown. My family, the Feik’s on the right and Glem’s on the left.

Treats during the holidays usually consisted of peanut butter and coconut balls, chocolate pizza, oreos and peanut crackers dipped in chocolate, Peggy’s Artichoke dip (it’s amazing), her cheese ball (I must get the recipe) and various other snacks like crackers and cheese, meats, veggies etc. I kinda miss the old days.

This was something quick and easy that us kids could make that afternoon, but rarely were there any left by that evening.
They are ritz crackers, smothered with peanut butter, topped with another cracker and coated in white almond bark. I know, doesn’t sound all too exciting, but they are a yummy little treat. *Too bad I didn’t get any 🙁 They are a little butter, salty, nutty and chocolatey. Isn’t that perfect?

  • Good times! I had totally forgotten about those! They are delicious. As was Peggy's cheese-ball; we should get that recipe! Did you know the coconut balls were also Peggy's recipe. Delicious.
