Another lazy person no-cook recipe

16 Oct


*      100 – 120        Cheese Ritz Crackers –packaged in sleeves is best – fewer broken

*      1 Kg                Creamy Peanut Butter

*      567 grams        Almond Bark or chocolate wafers (or 20 ozs)

*      ¼ cup               Shortening or lard– I use Tenderflake vegetable shortening        (NO 



*      Make sandwiches with 2 crackers and peanut butter filling, smooth edges w finger,  make about 55 – 60

*      Melt chocolate and shortening in microwave, stirring every ½ to 1 min (add enough shortening so chocolate coats cookies smoothly)

*      Drop cookies into chocolate, turn or dunk with fork

*      Lift out on fork tines, let drip a bit, scrape excess off bottom of fork against edge of bowl

*      Set on wax paper, let cool

*      Keep in fridge as chocolate is a little soft


I had one of this cookie.  It has some redeeming quality as a nutritional food because of the peanut butter.  Perhaps if you use dark chocolate instead of regular chocolate you might get some more nutrition bang out of it.  Great taste though but go easy.

    This is exactly the type of food that ruins the body and leads to internal confusion causing diabetes and other degenerative diseases. I am disgusted by this recipe and your association with diabetes and health. Shortening or lard should no longer be in the diet of Americans there is enough published on the diseases associated with lard consumption In my opinion it should be an illegal substance.

    Thanks for your shoutout. Anyway I am not recommending tha that people eat this everyday but for a little treat now and then. You are right we should be careful of the ingredients but I also feel that sometimes we go over the top. I am very careful about what I eat but it does not mean that I would not allow myself a little indulgence now and then. Hail to those who can stick to their game plan forever and ever. I believe that moderation is the key.

    Tenderflake is lard – not vegetable
