So, besides Hurricane Sandy taking away my power for 9 days so far, I think she took my self control too.
I have been wearing elastic pants for over a week…nary a zipper to be found.
I’ve been eating Pop Tarts for breakfast every morning…
And pizza for dinner.
And all the Halloween candy in the house … because they cancelled Halloween until Christmas this year.
You might say, “Hey Shelly…eat a banana…an apple…some carrots…”
But then you would die. Because I would kill you with a swift karate chop to the throat.
Health food has no place in my hurricane survival plan.
No thank you, sir. I refuse to accept that this will happen again.
So anyway, I am basically a fat, unhappy person right now who is living in denial.
Stay far, far away.
But to pass my time, I borrowed a neighbors kitchen who has a big, showy generator. She can run her oven, which I frankly think is kind of rude.
But then she said I could use her oven, so it stopped being rude and started being neighborly.
So I decided to invent something fun…Cranberry Bliss Bark.
I LOVE those Cranberry Bliss Bars from Starbucks and even make this version at home from time to time.
So why not turn it into a buttery, toffee-like bark?
Why the heck not.
I brought my supplies over and infiltrated my neighbor’s kitchen…
Line a jelly roll pan with foil and spray it with nonstick spray. Lay your graham crackers evenly out on the foil…
Mix that up and pour it all over your graham crackers…
While it’s baking chop up some white chocolate…I used Almond Bark…
When the toffee-bark comes out of the oven sprinkle your white chocolate over top and let it sit a few minutes until it’s softened enough to spread…
Honestly I let mine sit overnight, but it should take about an hour or so…
And that’s it!
Now really…just try and stop eating it.
