Homemade Tag Alongs

7 Mar

I wish I had a better picture of these. If only you could taste them… gracious! I like these even better than the Girl Scout version, and it’s not just because I make them! I like them more because they are a little saltier than the original Tag Alongs and the saltiness really brings out the chocolate nicely.

It doesn’t hurt that these are SUPER easy to make and you don’t have to turn on your oven. Big fan.

Homemade Tag Alongs

Time: 15 minutes
Level: Easy
Servings: As many as you wanna make! For this recipe, I’ll make 10.

20 Ritz crackers
1/4 c. peanut butter
1 c. chocolate chips
1 tbsp. vegetable shortening (Crisco)

Make peanut butter sandwiches by spreading peanut butter between two crackers.

Microwave chocolate chips and shortening for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave again for an additional 30 seconds. Stir until melted.

Dip peanut butter sandwiches in melted chocolate until covered.

Place on wax paper. Put in freezer or fridge until chocolate hardens. Yum!

Tips
– You can use milk or semisweet chocolate chips.
– I use all natural peanut butter for everything. Since it keeps in the fridge, leave it out on the counter for a few minutes before starting so it spreads easier.
– Chunky peanut butter would be a yummy twist!
– I haven’t tried this yet but I want to try Nutella instead of peanut butter and white chocolate instead of cocoa. Doesn’t that sound divine?

    These look DELISH and a lot cheaper than Girl Scout cookies!

      Seriously, SO easy. Bad thing is… I made 8 and they didn’t even last 24 hrs.
