Whatever, just crash it Bob...


You tagboard people are so silly! Stacy is having dreams about my creepy eyeball picture! Oh wow, that's crazy! And Laura, a thrift store mini vacation sounds so fun!

And for all you poor folks that need to make your own, here it is:

Nell's People Chow
1 12 oz bag of choc chips. (Semi sweet is easier to work with, milk chocolate may take a smidge more margarine, and it sets up faster so you'll have to work even quicker)
1 stick of margarine
1 12 oz box of chex (I use generic corn chex)
1 16 oz bag of powdered sugar

Make sure you have the following things ready before you melt the chocolate, once it melts you have to move fast:
2 very large bowls
A grocery bag with no holes
Pour half the box of chex in one of the big bowls.

Melt the choc and margarine in the microwave, (in a different bowl, don't use one of the 2 above) stirring every 2 mins or so.

When it's completely melted and creamy, pour about a third of it over the chex in the bowl. Add more chex, repeat till they're both gone. Work quickly, if the choc starts to set won't coat the chex well. Use a spatula to fold the chex over and over on itself in the bowl. Keep doing this for about 4 or 5 minutes till it looks like every piece of chex has some chocolate on it. Dump the whole bowlful in the grocery bag and quickly add half of the powdered sugar...give it a good shake and add the rest of the powdered sugar. Shake it around some more and dump the whole concoction into the last big bowl. There will be a lot of powdered sugar left, you can try to leave it in the bag, or just shake it to the bottom of the bowl.

It's done! Yum!

Now look at the mess you've made!
