I used up all the peanut butter in my cupboard.

When it comes to holiday cookies, everyone has a favorite.

My son loves Inside-Out Oreos. My daughter is all about sugar cookies. I can't wait to go to my parents' house and snack on sugar cookies from Larita's Cakes 'N More. Scott has a special place in his heart for chocolate-covered peanut butter Ritz Cracker cookies.

These are a simple cookie -- just a peanut butter sandwich made out of Ritz Crackers and dipped in chocolate. They take no time to make, but one of the reasons he loves them is that they are the cookies his mom makes every Christmas.

Who can compete with that?

Luckily, she knows how much he loves them and made extras for Scott to take home after our Christmas celebration earlier this month. It's too bad both kids like them, too, which is why I made more as part of The 12 Days of Christmas Cookies Challenge.

I'm hiding this batch.

CHOCOLATE-COVERED PEANUT BUTTER RITZ CRACKERS

  • Ritz Crackers
  • Peanut butter
  • Chocolate almond bark

Make peanut butter sandwiches with the Ritz Crackers and peanut butter.

Melt the chocolate almond bark according to the instructions on the packet.

Dip each sandwich in the chocolate until covered. Place on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. When the cookie sheet is full, place it in the refrigerator so the cookie can harden.

Store in an air-tight container.
