Chocolate Dipped Crackers: Different, Delicious and Easy

This week is crunch time (no cracker pun intended).  People are everywhere, scurrying to finish shopping and stock their kitchens. 

Since I am a longstanding member of the "forgot I need a gift for (insert name here) and it's 11pm" club, I have devised several easy and quick gift options.

My latest and greatest is the chocolate dipped cracker, holiday style.
All you need is chocolate morsels, sprinkles and a few fresh crackers (preferably round, butter style such as Ritz). 

Melt chocolate in microwave (30 second intervals, stirring after each one), drop a teaspoonful on one cracker, top with another.  Roll chocolate edges in holiday sprinkles. 

Set aside for at least and hour for chocolate to set.

While chocolate is setting, grab a decorative tin, and line with wax paper.  Add crackers, and if you have them, Hershey Kisses are an easy and cute addition. 

Another great packaging options is a jelly jar, tied with holiday ribbon.

These little 'fellas are sweet and salty.  They are easy and different.  And they are affordable. 

Hallelujah.
