Weekend Cooking

Post linked to Beth Fish Reads Weekend Cooking!

"...I like the book room so much better - library is too fine a name for my modest collection; I've been having my meals there - pigging it, rather, but it is so comfortable."
"Yes," Lady Jane said, "books are so companionable that they make a solitary meal seem like a pleasant party. I love eating in the library."
                                           from 'A Day of Small Things' by O. Douglas

Here's a quick 'cookie' treat. I have not tried this yet, it came in my email yesterday but I am on my way to the store to get the ingredients!  And let's eat in the library!

PMS Cookies

1 box Ritz crackers
1 jar peanut butter   only use like a tsp. per cracker so won't use a whole jar
1 jar marshmallow cream  7oz.   ditto on the cream
1 box chocolate bark -  2.5 lb.

1  Spread peanut butter, then marshmallow cream onto Ritz crackers.

2  Sandwich together.

3  Melt chocolate bark in microwave or double boiler

4  Dip sandwiched cookies into chocolate, covering both sides.

5  Place cookies on waxed paper and allow to harden. (If you put the paper on a cookie sheet and place it in the freezer for 5 minutes, the cookies harden up faster!)

6  Store in airtight container - Enjoy!!
