Tasty Tuesday - Cracker Crack by Sam Cheever

This recipe is a new favorite for me. I heard some authors talking about eating crack at a book signing and I was curious, so I went online and found a recipe. Apparently you can make this with saltines or matzo crackers. I prefer saltines. Why the name? Because it's made with crackers of course! (And it's highly addictive!)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking sheet (11X17) with foil and then top that with parchment paper, cut to fit. Cut 1 cup of butter into large pieces and add it to 1 cup of packed light brown sugar in a heavy pan. Melt the mixture together over medium heat until it boils, then continue to cook for 3 minutes, stirring well. It will thicken slightly. Remove from heat and add a pinch of sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Pour the mixture over the crackers right away, spreading it quickly because it will set up fast. Bake for 15 minutes (watch that the corners don't burn) Then lift the parchment to remove the crackers from the pan and cover them with 1.5 cups of chocolate chips. Let the chocolate rest on the hot crackers for 5 minutes and then spread it evenly. You can sprinkle the chocolate with 1 cup toasted, chopped almonds if you'd like. When it's completely cool break it into pieces.

Prepare to be addicted!

Perdition guide Damian is supposed to escort sexy Amanda to Hell. But he’d much rather keep her.

Damian Noire is a Perdition Guide. He escorts people who die to their rightful spot in Hell. Business always seems to pick up around the Holidays and this Christmas is no exception. Damian’s assignment is to bring a beautiful young woman to Hell to stand before the judgment assembly, and then take her to her assigned circle of Hell. It sounds simple. But it’s about to become the hardest assignment he’s ever performed. 

Amanda Wright might have been unjustly judged. She might not belong in Hell at all. Problem is, Damian really kind of likes her. He especially likes enjoying her lush, willing body under the mistletoe. If he gets her the judgment she truly deserves, he’s probably going to lose her forever. But if he doesn’t help her, an innocent may spend eternity in Hell. It appears to be a lose/lose situation on all fronts. Proving once again that holidays truly are hell!
