Cass's Super-Chip Mix



I would like to introduce myself; I'm the "Girl Cherub."

You could say I am guest writing.  This would be correct.

You might say I am writing from a "prodigy* child chef's" point of view.  This
would also be correct.

Now, enough chit chat-- down to my recipe. 

Well, it's not really my recipe, it is a recipe from a book. 

Not a cookbook--a book book. 

I would highly recommend this book for  ages 11+. 

You are probably wondering the name of this book.  THE NAME OF THIS BOOK IS SECRET.

That is literally the name of the book. 

The book is by Pseudonymous Bosch. 

It states in the back of the book,"Pseudonymous Bosch is a pseudonym, or as he would prefer to call it, a nom de plume.  Unfortunately, for reasons he cannot disclose, he cannot tell you his real name.  But he admits he has a deep-seated fear of mayonnaise. This is his first novel."

The main character of this book loves to make her "super chip mix."

Now, of course, I just had to make it,  being a daughter of a master chef, which makes me  a "prodigy child chef." 

So here is the recipe:

Cass's Super-Chip Mix

1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter chips
1/4 cup banana chips
1/4 cup potato chips

And that's it... well except for two minor details:
  1.  the instructions (I will make sure to include them)
  2. and no raisins, EVER!  (That is from the book!)

The book had the instructions but they really did not make sense to me. 

So here are the instructions--adapted by me,  the "Girl Cherub"

The instructions are pretty hard so just try to handle them calmly:

Mix the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and banana chips in a large bowl.
Then , gently break the potato chips in a separate bowl and then measure out 1/4 cup of them.  Place these with the other chips . . . and toss to mix.

I know, its hard.  \

Since I was making the mix for my whole family I doubled the recipe; it was great! 

We did use kettle cooked original potato chips and it doesn't bother me.

If you don't like kettle cooked potato chips then just use regular potato chips, like Lay's. 

As you may know, the boy cherub is celiac and the banana chips bag indicated they might have traces of wheat and soy. 

I came up with a solution: don't use them. 

Since the boy cherub would be the only one eating the mixture without the banana chips I used 1/4 of everything and just put it in a separate bowl.

That should be everything.

If you have any questions just comment and I will try to answer them. 

Oh one more thing: try to eat it slowly. 

If you eat it too fast, it could give you a craving for more of it!

Y'all should be expecting another blog post (or a blog, if my parents allow me) from me in the near future!!

I forgot to say "I have to give credit where credit is due"

So here are my credits;

There that's it.  I am for sure.
