Chocoley sent me three of their super products; Bada Bing Bada Doom Dipping Chocolate. Since I’m a die-hard Sopranos fan, the name Bada Bing, Bada Boom, immediately caught my attention:) Dark-Just Melt It! Fondue Chocolate and Coconut Dough. Chocoley products are celiac safe, peanut free, tree nut free, egg free, and gluten free. If you are on a restricted diet and are a fan of chocolate then you are in luck. Now you can have your chocolate and eat it too.
Crackers and Candy
This recipe came about because I’ve always been intrigued with the fact that crackers, saltines and buttery crackers, hold their shape and don’t get soggy when made into candy. Saltine crackers are often used to make toffee or “saltine cracker crack” and everyone knows how good that is! So why not use buttery crackers, like Ritz or Townhouse? Well that’s just what I did.
Never, never, ever do I not have peanut butter in my cupboard. I absolutely love the stuff. Peanut butter on toasted sourdough bread with a drizzle of honey, ooh that’s good! It made complete sense to me then to smother peanut butter, creamy or chunky on Ritz crackers and then dip them into melted milk chocolate. A sprinkle of chopped salted peanuts on top, even better. You can never too much peanut butter, peanuts or chocolate.
If you’re like me, the holidays are my last hurrah to over indulge in sweets and chocolate until I get back on that hamster wheel called the “New Years Resolution Diet.” At least until February when those cherry ju ju hearts come out:) Now, let’s get back too, ♪ Well, the Holidays are a rockin’, don’t bother knockin’ ♫ ♪Yeah, the Holidays are a rockin’, don’t bother knockin’♫ ♪Yeah, the Holidays are a rockin’, don’t bother, come on in!♫
