Candy Dipped Peanut Butter Ritz Cookies

This is a super quick and simple snack, but it’s one of my absolute favorite Christmas treats! My mom has made these every year since I can remember for the holidays. This one’s an oldie, but a goodie. I so look forward to these little peanut butter stuffed Ritz cracker treats each year! :)

Usually these are waiting for me on a plate as soon as we walk in the door for Christmas, but this year I made a few on my own and they couldn’t be easier. All you need are Ritz crackers, peanut butter, and white almond bark.

By the way, can someone tell me why my almond bark and Ritz are straight, while my weird, freaky Jif is impressively slanted? I can’t figure that one out.
