Looking to add more flavor to your plain old cookie or cracker snacks? Try this for adding none other than...chocolate! To sweeten up the snack and satisfy your tastebuds.

Redesigning Oreo's

Start by deciding how many Oreo's you want to coat in chocolate. Lay them aside. Get a bag of chocolate chips and begin to melt them. The easiest way I've found to melt chocolate is to do this: Start with a saucepan and a smaller bowl, with the smaller bowl being able to fit inside and sit on top of the larger saucepan. In other words, don't have a bowl that falls all the way down into the saucepan. See my picture for more help. Fill the larger saucepan with a little bit of water, about a cup to a cup and a half, and bring to a boil. While the water is trying to boil, place the smaller bowl on top of the saucepan, filling it with the chocolate. Keep stirring the chocolate as it's melting, and once it's completely melted, turn down the heat to medium and begin coating.

I coat the cookies like this: I use my thumb and middle fingers to just loosely hold each side of the cookie, then dip it in, then lay it on wax paper to cool. When i'm done with a few cookies, i'll go back and use a spoon to drip chocolate where my fingers were to cover up the holes. Coat all of the cookies, let them cool, and you have a really chocolately treat!

Ritz Crackery Goodness

To make the Ritz Crackers, you'll need lots of them, plus some peanut butter. Spead peanut butter on one cracker and then sandwich it with another, making as many sandwiches as you want! You can also put in as much peanut butter as your heart desires!

Coating is the same way as above. Start by melting the chocolate, then dipping, then cooling, and finally enjoying!


Hopefully this knocks the socks off of your tastebuds!
