Peppermint Kiss Sandwiches December 15, 2012

Every once in a while, Pinterest does inspire me, where I come up with an idea that I didn’t see on it.  Though I am sure this is out there.  The inspiration to these little treats was pin for rolo crackers.  My mom had purchased some Peppermint Hersey’s Kisses.  I thought, now why couldn’t I do the same with them?

These are easy to do, and I dipped them in chocolate at the end.  Now, outside of chocolate and peanut butter (nothing beats that), chocolate and peppermint is one of my favorite tastes.

Oh,the carnage to get to the tasty little kisses.

After this point, I had a little boy begging to help.  So, he got place the kisses on the crackers. I went back arranged the kisses in the middle of each cracker, so they wouldn’t melt off the cracker.

So Christmasy looking!

Next into to a 350° oven for 3 minutes.  Then top with a second cracker.  by this point I lost my helper, so I topped the crackers myself, of course, once I was done, I had a little boy asking for one. 🙂

Half done!

Half done!

I melted dark chocolate chips in the microwave, my least favorite way to temper chocolate. Each cracker got dipped into it.  Yum!

Can't you just taste it?

While my hubby likes the rolo crackers better, I liked these, maybe because I have been avoiding peppermint like a plague the past 3 years.  I am not worrying about how much I am eating this year as much.
