Eat Your Heart Out, Willy Wonka

I recently purchased a new cookbook (© 1985) called Chocolate Classics. It contains recipes made with "Famous Brands" such as Borden, Hershey, Nabisco, etc. Since I can't decide which chocolate recipe to begin with, I thought I'd ask you which ones you'd be most interested in. I'll begin posting the recipes beginning next Monday.

What IS a Gorp Bar?

Sara-
Gorp is defined as: A mixture of high-energy foods, such as nuts and dried fruit, eaten as a snack. A Gorp Bar is comprised of a bunch of goodies (Rice Krispies, pretzels, M&M's, banana chips, raisins, peanut butter, marshmallows, etc.) which is then pressed into a baking pan and cut into bars. Think trail mix in a bar! I remember them being pretty popular at potlucks, parties and church socials in the 80's.

There was a summer camp movie in the 80's called "Gorp," with early screen appearances by a very young Dennis Quaid, Fran Drescher and Roseanna Arquette.

Trust me, Gorp Bars are delicious!
