It's very alarming when your step-son comes home on leave from the Air Force and the first thing he says to your mother-in-law when he sees her is "Grandma, thank you so much for The Crack you sent me. All the guys loved it. I'd really like to take some more of The Crack back to the base with me."
My kids love The Crack. I think it's really called White Trash or Dish Pan Candy or something like that. We call it The Crack because it is so addicting (and the word "The" is always included). My m-i-l shared her recipe with me and I made some this morning. Yup, I'm hooked. When you call the TV show Intervention to come save me, please have them send Candy Finnigan as my interventionist. That would be just so appropriate.
4 cups Cap'n Crunch Peanut Butter Cereal
2 cups Rice Crispies cereal
2- 12oz bags white chocolate chips or 1 lb white almond bark
1 cup roasted whole almonds (salted)
2 cups pecans- either whole or large pieces (toast in oven for a few minutes)
Line 2 or 3 cookie sheets with wax paper or foil. Pour cereals and nuts in large bowl. Melt chips or bark according to package directions. Pour melted white chocolate over cereals and nuts and mix well. Coat all pieces and then pour mixture on cookie sheets. Spread into one layer and let cool and chocolate will harden. Break into chunks and store in air tight containers.
Hide your own stash well.
