In case you didn't know this – Hershey's Whatchamacallit bar is one of the best candy bars ever. It's tied with Snickers and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups for the title of "favorite candy bar".

Recently I ran across a recipe for peanut butter balls (peanut butter, crushed graham crackers, and butter dipped in chocolate) that sounded AWESOME – pretty much a Reese's in ball form.. but I never got around to making them. Instead, it seems like my subconscious was working on one-upping the recipe: get rid of the graham cracker and add in rice crispies, then mix in some caramel. You know what you've got? Whatchamacallit balls.

Whatchamacallit balls.

The hangup I'm running into now is the caramel. I don't want a super-runny caramel sauce, but I don't want it to be as solid as a caramel candy. "Candy bar caramel" is what I'm looking for, like in Snickers or Whatchamacallits (it's fun to type. try it.) Maybe someone (Tom?) has some ideas for this.

Inspiration Strikes… With Sundae Toppings

I went to Culver's for lunch (AGAIN!) today. Good stuff, as always.

Today I had a strange craving for a sundae. With a combination of toppings I've never thought of before – peanut butter and Snickers.

I'm not sure where the idea came from, but the combination is ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT.

I'm eating it now as I type. Nomnomnomnomnom!
