great pair!!!!

(cups and saucers by Gary Rith) You probably think "ho hum, more POTS, how dull! let's talk
chocolate!!!!!" OK***  This is one of my favorite recipes, you may know it too...makes a lot of tasty treats too....

I probably don't have to tell you that licking off the knife and spoon is the best part of making these...

***You probably want that recipe for tasty chocolate walnut bars, eh wot? It comes from the back of the bag, Diamond walnuts, probably the tastiest walnut snack EVER. Aside from the walnuts, I don't think there is anything healthy about these at all....looks like they are hard to make but they are impossibly easy, actually....

 TIMES Prep time: 0:15 Overall time: 0:40
 SERVINGS 2 dozen
 1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1-1/2 cups Diamond walnuts, chopped
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate pieces

 Heat oven to 350°F. In bowl, beat butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until creamy. Stir in flour, salt, and 1/2 cup walnuts. Spread lightly into lightly buttered 13x9-inch pan. Bake for 25 minutes, or until lightly browned. Immediately sprinkle with chocolate pieces and let stand for 5 minutes. Spread chocolate over cookie base. Sprinkle with remaining walnuts and press lightly. Cool. Cut into bars.

 Spike remains, well, chubby? Zaftig? Traditionally built, plus sized, super sized or just plain large???

Those sound delicious. Chocolate is one of the 5 basic food groups you know.

sweet cups and saucers!
the chocolate bar looks good but i would have to switch to a different type of nut. i just don't like the taste of walnuts. almonds might be tasty.

Spike is big-boned, but there's more of him to love!
