crewsk,

Ritz crackers in peanut butter dipped in white or milk chocolate????? WHOA!!!!

Now THOSE would be a different treat on my platter of Christmas cookies!

I could use green and red food coloring to tint the white chocolate!

QSis, I love them! Just spread peanut butter on a Ritz cracker & top with another Ritz & dip in the chocolate. To give then a special look. I sometimes drizzle the milk chocolate coated ones with white chocolate & vise versa.

crewsk - I have to agree with you on the ritz/peanut butter dipped in chocolate. I haven't made these in years, back in the old days I made them with choc bark and still they were very good!! Ruffle's potato chips are yummy dipped in chocolate - hmmm wonder how those scoop frito's would be....

Barefoot Contessa's Chocolate Truffles:

1/2 pound good bittersweet chocolate such as Lindt
1/2 pound good semisweet chocolate such as Ghiradelli
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier, optional
1 tablespoon prepared coffee
1/2 teaspoon good vanilla extract
Confectioners' sugar
Cocoa powder


Chop the chocolates finely with a sharp knife. Place them in a heat-proof mixing bowl.
Heat the cream in a small saucepan until it just boils. Turn off the heat and allow the cream to sit for 20 seconds. Pour the cream through a fine-meshed sieve into the bowl with chocolate. With a wire whisk, slowly stir the cream and chocolates together until the chocolate is completely melted. Whisk in the Grand Marnier, if using, coffee, and vanilla. Set aside at room temperature for 1 hour.

With 2 teaspoons, spoon round balls of the chocolate mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, until firm. Roll each dollop of chocolate in your hands to roughly make a round ball. Roll in confectioners' sugar, cocoa powder, or both. These will keep refrigerated for weeks, but serve at room temperature.
