Treat Tuesday With Dad

I have to admit, I didn't think I'd like these, but I did.  You can find the recipe here. Sure, it starts off okay. ½ cup peanut butter and ¼ cup powdered sugar. Mix it well. Peanut butter. Sugar. Yummy.

Then find 32 Ritz crackers. Yep. Ritz crackers. This is where Andrew got all excited and I well, did not. Andrew licked his lips and I crinkled my nose. Mr. Man practiced his counting skills. 1/2 of 32 crackers on a sheet.

Put a spoonful of the peanut butter and sugar mixture on top of each cracker. Followed by the other 1/2 of the 32 crackers. Mr. Man carefully tapped them down. Andrew put them in the freezer to harden. Mr. Man took his job seriously. Andrew licked his lips and I crinkled my nose.

Enter the chocolate. I love chocolate. But on Ritz crackers? Andrew licked his lips and I crinkled my nose. Mr Man. helped Andrew melt 2 cups of milk chocolate chips and then dipped the cracker sandwiches into the chocolate. Andrew licked his lips and I crinkled my nose.

We each took a bite. Mr. Man gave it a thumbs up. Andrew licked his lips and so did I.


  1. Excellent guys! The pictures, the recipe, the peanut butter and chocolate (licking my lips) and of course, Mr.Man!

    I'll have to convince Faith to let me try this with the kids this Chinese New Year...and yes, she'd probably crinkle her nose as well at the idea and the sugar!...:)

  2. Hi aunty Kim! It's Matthew and Gabrielle. we've just read your blog. Aiden looks so different! Gaby says he looks much older. She likes your blog and wants dad and mom to start one too. We got to go to bed now bye!

  3. James - they do taste good. It took me a while to work up the courage to taste one - it's the crackers that put me off trying one. The sugar, well, I don't think you can get around that!

    Gaby and Matt - Aiden does look older! He's growing his hair longer. Thanks for stopping by. We talk about you often and loved having you come for a visit.
