Pillbug Crunch Bars

Thanks to Chet Gecko, Private Eye, J has developed a taste for odd kinds of foods. Pillbug Crunch Bars just happen to be Chet Geckos favorite snack. And thus, we had to have them for dessert one night. J made 2 batches of these for us last week because we ate the first batch before he got them If you would like to make Pillbug Crunch Bars I will share the recipe with you. I will even tell you where to find the pill bugs cause I am just that nice! :)

Pillbug Crunch Candy Bars (from Chet Gecko's Detective Handbook and Cookbook)

7 ounce chocolate candy bar

1/4 cup chopped almonds

1/4 pillbugs (if pillbugs aren't available in your area you can substitute 1/4 cup Cocoa Krispie cereal)

Break chocolate into microwave safe bowl. Heat in microwave for 10 seconds, stire, heat 10 seconds more and continue until chocolate melts. Too much heat will make it burn.

Stir until smooth.

Stir in chopped almonds and pillbugs.

Put waxed paper onto a small tray.

Spread to edges. Put another sheet of waxed paper on top. Smooth.

Put in freezer for 45 minutes.

Remove and cut into 12 small candy bars. Wrap in foil. pictures copywrite 2008 The Homefront Lines
