A spooky Frankenstein's monster of a sweet made up in spare parts from cookie, candy and other bits.

These colorful treats are perfect for Halloween parties.


2 sleeves Ritz-style crackers
1/2 cup Creamy peanut butter
1 (12-ounce bag) white chocolate chips
1 (12-ounce bag) semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
2 tablespoons Crisco shortening
Decorative icings, orange and yellow, optional
Green gumdrops, cut in half, optional


  1. Spread peanut butter on 32 crackers and cover with another cracker, sandwich style.
  2. Melt chocolate chips separately in a double boiler with one tablespoon shortening per bag. (This also can be accomplished in a microwave oven on very low heat, stirring at one-minute intervals.)
  3. Dip the peanut butter crackers in the chocolate to coat evenly. Set aside on waxed paper.
  4. When chocolate is firm, decorate with icings and gumdrops.
