White Chocolate Nutty Ritz

C360_2012-10-26-11-11-40_resiz


   Simple white chocolate cookies topped with chopped walnuts and almonds.  I was working on a project for this weekend when I found myself with a whole mess of leftover melted white chocolate.

Hmm, what to do?

Make cookies!

Supplies:
meltable white chocolate bars (any brand)
Ritz Crackers
chopped nuts (I used walnuts and almonds)
small crockpot or small sauce pan
wax paper

Heat up your chocolate until melted and you can stir with a spoon and it is smooth.

Now here comes the tricky part...

1. Dip a single Ritz cracker in your melted white chocolate.

2. Lay on wax paper.

3. Top with nuts.

Voila! 

Just wait for these little goodies to harden and there ready to eat!
