If you haven't noticed I love making Halloween treats and right now I'm all about things that are tasty and easy. So today I have a super simple and delicious snack- chocolate peanut butter spider web crackers. These little guys take no time at all to make and are so delicious, especially so because I used the brand new Peter Pan Simply Ground Honey Roast Peanut Butter. This new peanut butter is creamy with a bit of crunch, so you never have to choose between creamy and crunchy again, its the perfect compromise! I'm not gonna lie, I purchased it about a week ago and we are halfway through the jar and thats mostly from me taking spoonfuls strait to my mouth- I love good peanut butter (and I'm pregnant)!
I love to save a few pennies when I'm trying something new so download a coupon for 50 cents off Simply Ground HERE.
I've got 2 recipe ideas for you today using Simply Ground- First is a healthy after school snack for your kids or just a nice pick me up afternoon snack for yourself. Like I said I'm totally in love with this peanut butter so spreading it on round butter crackers is a no brainer. I like to chop up whatever fruit I have on hand and after spreading the cracker with peanut butter top it with some fruit.
Today I did strawberries, apples & pomegranate seeds but almost any fruit you can think of would work just as great- my kids love bananas and peanut butter together. There is something so fun with bite sized snacks that even my kids can be tricked into eating more fruit and less junk!
My second recipe with Simply Ground Peanut Butter is a fun Halloween treat! These spider web crackers are so simple and fun and your kids can even join in and help you make them.
All you need is Simply Ground Peanut Butter, round butter crackers, & chocolate chips. You'll need a ziplock bag, scissors & a toothpick as well.
Step 1: Spread your Simple Ground Peanut Butter on your crackers.
Step 2: Melt 1/2 cup of chocolate chips in your microwave in 30 second increments, stirring after each time. Once your chocolate is completely melted spoon it into a ziplock bag and push it to one of the corners. (see the photo below) Cut a tiny bit of the corner of the bag so you have a makeshift pastry bag that you will squirt the chocolate out of.
Step 3: With your melted chocolate draw a bullseye on each cracker. (See photo below)
Step 4: Using a toothpick start in the center of the bullseye and drag your toothpick to the outside circle creating your web lines. Do this all the way around the cracker 6-8 times. (see photo below) After you have made all the spider web lines pop the crackers in the fridge for a few minutes so the chocolate hardens up a bit, Enjoy!
