We were surprised by a New Years Eve visit from grandson J. Mom hasn't been letting him come over like she used to, but when I got home from errands Thursday afternoon he was here! Grandpa picked him up. He's easy to have here because he likes to watch TV, go on the computer (he has hubby's old one), play a game or 2, scrapbook, or cook. He takes care of himself most of the time. Thursday night he decided to make something....he felt like making Ree Drummond's Crazy Bark all by himself. Of course, first we had to hit the grocery store to pick up a few things.
Chopping up the chocolate before melting it. I never chop it in such small pieces...but he did. He watches cooking shows and says he learns a lot. He does.
He melted it in a double boiler and then lined a pan with graham crackers.
I spread the melted chocolate on top of the crackers.
He added plenty of toppings. You can use anything you like.
He prefers white chocolate but the grocery store was out of it. I found a few squares left over from a different project so he drizzled that on top.

The next day he broke it up and put in tins so he could take it to his dad's and share with the rest of his family.
I only had a small piece, but it was quite good!
I hope you didn't notice my messy, well lived in, house in the background. I AM starting to put away Christmas decorations.
