I Am Strange . . . But I'll Bet I'm Not The Only One!

This is my new obsession . . . .

Caroline's Firecrackers!

It may look a little funny, but believe me, you could get hooked on this one.

I know the whole "rage" about mixing salty/sweet and hot/sweet has passed for the most part, but I'll forever be a sucker for it. This particular concoction is a very simple mixture of Flaming Cheetos (yes, I said Cheetos) and white almond bark. Yup, that's it.

I know what you are thinking: "Good grief, the girl has completely lost it. That has got to be the worst combination of ingredients imaginable." And if that's not what you are thinking, maybe you are just as weird as I am.

The recipe is 12 ounces almond bark, melted and 1 package Flaming Hot Cheetos. I believe it's a 9 ounce package, but it could be 8.5 oz. too. Sorry, I threw the bag away before taking notes. Mix the two together and spread out as thick or thin as you like on a sheet of parchment or wax paper to set for a couple hours.

That was hard, wasn't it?

*****I would like to note that this is an original idea thought up while walking down a grocery isle. I am  proud to take full credit on this very odd, deranged idea of a recipe. :)
