You’ve got to try Saltine toffee, that’s right, you heard me…

This one is worth re-visiting….yum!

my sweet addiction


I am a Pinterest recipe stalker, and this was my latest obsession. It looked and sounded so good, I had to make it. I could have eaten the whole batch, but instead I brought it to the office. Everyone loved it, and I was asked for the recipe several times.

The ingredients list is short, and inexpensive. The total time is about an hour, and the result is delicious!
The stealth ingredient that makes this amazing is the simple saltine.
It will make great gifts for the holidays, or bring it to a potluck, and be the belle of the buffet.
The recipe that I used is from the blog sixsistersstuff. I tweaked it very little and I really think I have a new favorite. I hope you try it soon.

Real chocolate jimmies, at last!

When I was little, the sprinkles on ice cream were called jimmies, and they were real chocolate. Today’s sprinkles found on the grocery shelves are made with oils and artificial flavors and colors. They are just plain gross.
I had given up on finding chocolate jimmies and was ready to put them in my in memoriam section in the blog, but what to my wondering eyes should appear at the Whole Foods, but the real thing! These are called dark chocolate vermicelli, but believe me, these are the jimmies of my youth. Horray!

Side note: Jimmies were recently accused of being a racial slur. This is untue, and it is vetted on snopes. End of story.
