Shopping Around the World

30 Mar

This month we are highlighting appetizers or snacks.  

This gives us so many choices to pick from and it was really hard for us to pick one.  But after I thought long and hard about it, I had to go with dad’s crack.  Snorts – no not that kind of crack.  Dad actually has a snack treat that we call crack.  Why crack?  Because he can’t keep his hands out of the container when mom fixes it – snorts with piggy laughter.  And when mom makes this, she fixes a whole bunch because it goes fast.  You can use it as a snack or bring it to a party.  So now, all of you can fix it and get hooked to on it.  Enjoy my friends.

1 bag of short pretzels (dad prefers these but you can use any kind of pretzel you want).  For a bag of pretzels, we pay $1.29

2 bags of peanut butter morsels.  You find these on the baking aisle.  We paid $1.50 for each bag on this shopping trip.

2 boxes of movie theater sized Reeses Pieces (you know the kind they showed in the movie E.T – ha)  These were $1.00 each in the store

Optional – a bag of toasted coconut.  Sometimes dad likes this and other times he doesn’t.  A bag of coconut costs $2.49 in the store.

Now, first up.  If you are going to do the coconut you need to do this first.  Put the coconut on a tray and stick it in the oven.  Mom puts it under the broiler for a few minutes.  Keep an eye on it because it will burn quickly.  Toast the coconut and then set it aside to cool.

While your coconut is cooling, get a BIG bowl.  Yep the bigger the better in this case.  Pour in your entire bag of pretzels followed by your Reeses Pieces and peanut butter morsels.  When your coconut is cool, throw it into the party as well.  Then stir everything together and make sure it is nicely mingled.  Mom then packages the crack into individual containers for dad’s destruction.

So you see, it’s an easy snack that goes a long way and peeps love it!  The final cost for this snack is less than $9.00 (with coconut) and that should last either a couple of weeks,  one night at a party or two days with dad – snorts.  And never fear, if you don’t like peanut butter, just substitute items for what you do love.  For example any kind of chocolate candy and any kind of baking morsels.  Happy crack my friends.

      It really is cousin. I’ve seen days that daddy absolutely will not stay out of the container thus why we call it crack – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

      Thanks my friends. It really is. Such a simple throw together of mixture and there you go – crack in a bowl. It keeps daddy’s munchie monster down to a slow simmer. Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    That sounds really good, I would skip the coconut, but the rest sounds yummy.

    Yum . . . Lady had it in her calendar to participate but now that she is on the only veggie and nut/seed diet (ok she can have a few other things) her snacks were completely boring. She wishes she could eat a snack like your Dad’s . . . .
