Treasure Chest: Skor Wannabes

This is a very simple recipe that always (well, almost always) delights the palates of those that try them… and now you can evoke culinary bliss on your friends, family, and guests!

Skor Wannabes (aka “Cracker Candy”, “Bark”, etc.)

Salted Saltine (Soda) Crackers
1 cup butter (don’t use margarine, people – stick with the real stuff!)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 F.
Cover 2 small/medium or 1 large jelly roll pan(s) (cookie sheets with sides) in aluminum foil.
Lay as many crackers as possible on the pan(s).
Melt together over low/medium heat the butter and sugar, stirring regularly. Once they are both melted, you will find that the butter sorts of sits on top of the thicker sugar. Stir agressively until they are blended smoothly.
Pour butter/sugar mixture onto cookie sheets, dividing evenly between the pans. Spread evenly over crackers. NOTE: For a crunchier result, just barely cover crackers with the butter/sugar mixture. For a more chewy result, be generous with it!
Bake for about 7 minutes or until it’s all bubbling lively!
Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over cracker/candy layer, use butter knife to spread ’til melted.
When slightly cooler, place in freezer until completely hardened. Break into pieces, store in airtight container.
Serve and enjoy!

Treasure Chest: Super Easy Tortilla Chip Dip

So I had this random thought that perhaps there is other wisdom I might share with the elite few that peruse these pages and they can then pass it on to others as they deem fit.

And I was just making some Super Easy Tortilla Chip Dip and thought of all you that haven’t been so blessed in your life:

Put a big spoonful of Cheese Whiz (or something similar) in a microwaveable bowl and microwave just long enough for it to melt.

Add some globs of your favourite salsa (proportionately, you probably want a little more than the cheese) and stir.

Enjoy with your tortilla chips of choice, or be creative and use to dip other things!
