A treatish snack

The same boy who broke my new digital camera so I have to use cell phone pictures again? He is the one who requested "a treatish snack." I dreamed up these.

Treatish Turtles

12 oz chocolate chips
1 c roasted, salted peanuts, plus a few for decoration
3 graham crackers

Break the graham crackers in fourths along the perforations (I don't know what else to call those!). Then cut each rectangle in half so you have 24 little grahamy squares. Place them on parchment or wax paper.

Melt your chocolate chips in the microwave, initially for 1 minute, and then for 30 seconds at a time until you can stir them smooth. Stir in the peanuts, except for 24 you are saving for decoration.

Scoop the chocolate and peanut mixture onto the graham crackers. A 1 tbsp scoop is ideal for this.

Decorate with a peanut on top of each.

Good luck letting these cool before you eat them all. Hey, they have peanuts and graham crackers. That is snack food. The chocolate is the only treatish part.
