When I moved out of my parents house, my mom organized a special little surprise for me. She asked all my family and friends to fill out recipe cards with their favorite recipes and then put them in a recipe box for me.
I have saved this recipe box and still use it today—almost 20 years later! Talk about a memorable and long-lasting gift!
One of the recipes I found in the box was from my aunt and it was called Amish Hats. Would you believe I never made them until this past week? I read the recipe card and told myself that I need to make them. Especially because of their cute name!
This is a super-simple recipe and perfect for a quick after-school snack treat! I loved getting them ready for my kiddos, and they loved them too!
You need three simple ingredients:
- Ritz crackers
- peanut butter
I laid out all the crackers on a cookie sheet, spread a little peanut butter on them and then cut the marshmallows in half. Actually, truth to be told—I made this step even simpler. I just ripped them in half and stuck them on top of the peanut butter topped crackers.
Stick them in the oven and let them bake for 5 minutes at 350 degrees—or just turn on the broiler and that works fine too. Watch carefully, they can get done quick!
Viola! Super-simple, super-cute after-school snack. Serve with some milk or juice and tell some jokes with your kids to get them to open up and laugh with you. (I always find that works better than asking them about their day and me getting frustrated with their blank stares, ha!)
