On Valentine’s Day everyone needs chocolate, right? What about a homemade chocolate treat? It would be great for your sweetheart, teacher, mother, or just about anyone you love. This is one of Aunt Alisa’s go-to treats, and they’re always a fan favorite. She describes them as a Reese’s cup, but much better. Keep them cold as long as possible before serving, because it makes them taste even better.


  • 1 – 13.7-ounce Ritz cracker box
  • no more than a 16-ounce jar peanut butter
  • 24 ounces chocolate almond bark


  • Line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper.
  • Place ½-1 tablespoon peanut butter on Ritz cracker.
  • Spread to desired thickness.
  • Top with another cracker to create a sandwich.
  • Place on prepared pan.
  • Repeat until crackers are gone. (You can layer the sandwiches with parchment paper between each layer.)
  • Place in freezer overnight to allow the peanut butter to harden.
  • Keep a prepared pan out so that you can place the dipped sandwiches on it to allow the chocolate bark to harden.
  • Melt almond bark in double boiler.
  • Drop each sandwich cookie into the almond bark making sure to completely coat.
  • Use tongs to remove each sandwich. (Shake off excess chocolate.)
  • Place each one, in a single layer, on the prepared pan as you are done and let them set until they are hardened.
  • You may have a few sandwiches left when the chocolate is gone depending on how thick the chocolate is on the cookies. Aunt Alisa either saves the sandwiches for another time or melts a few more blocks of chocolate bark.
  • Once hardened, store in airtight container.

“O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.”
