Chocolate Peanut Butter Jen Snacks

First, I want to say how much fun it's been reading everyone's favorite holiday snacks in the the Owl Pouch Giveaway!  And the amount of entries has really blown me away, this is by far my most successful giveaway and it warms my little vegan heart that so many of you want something that I've made :)

There are a lot of good entries (and still time to enter) but it was an entry from my friend Jen that intrigued me the most.  Don't worry, the winner of the contest will be chosen by random number, so Jen still has a chance to lose, lol!  Anyway, Jen's holiday cookies are super simple and came out delicious:



These cookies are simply crackers sandwiching a layer of sweetened peanut butter and then dipped in melted chocolate and topped with chocolate sprinkles.  I used Back to Nature Classic Rounds for the crackers, natural peanut butter (one ingredient - peanuts!) with a bit of powdered sugar added, Enjoy Life chocolate chips, and Let's Do Sprinkelz for the topping.  Here's an inside shot:



Delicious and perfect for the holidays when we're all pressed for time but still want to share homemade goodies!  And when I told my husband that I was trying out Jen's recipe he called them "Jen Snacks" so I think that's what they have to be officially named.

Awesome! I just made these too, but I don't think my chocolate bark was vegan... http://lifestooshorttoskipdessert.blogspot.com/2010/12/ritz-bark-cookies-with-holiday-pizzazz.html

How much powdered sugar would you say you add? :) is it a certain amount per cup of PB?

I didn't measure the peanut butter, I used about three big spoonfulls though. And I think I went with about 2-3 TBs of sugar. I just kept adding sugar until it was as sweet as I liked :)

I opened your blog and thought that you stole my cookies.... I ran into the kitchen only to discover that you hadn't stolen my cookies but G did!!!! That boy is in deep trouble!
(p.s. I'm so honored to have a special name for my favorite cookies! I like you too.... )
