Pop quiz, Hot Shot: You want to bake something, but you really don’t feel like going to the store to get supplies. What do you do? If you’re me, you take a look in your pantry and see Manwich (yes, tangy, tomato-y Sloppy Joe sauce) and you think, “Huh, I could make dessert with that.” So tonight at my house, we had Manwich Blondies. The original recipe I started with calls for one can of Hershey’s syrup, so the substitution was easy, and the results were a crave-worthy, sweet and savory “dessert.”

I was worried about losing my namesake, so I thought I'd show you guys what cereal baking is all about by combing all four flavors of Cinnamon Toast Crunch into one mega mallow treat. Backtracking a bit, yes, there are four distinct flavors of Toast Crunch currently on the market: OG Cinnamon (my personal fav), Chocolate (a close second), Frosted, and Peanut Butter. The great thing about making a recipe with all four cereals is that you only use two cups of each for a full batch, so you've got breakfast for the next couple of weeks. (Don't judge, Kyle eats CTC for breakfast every day).
As Foodbeast reported last week, Nabisco finally got on board with the answer to “What makes everything better?” and recently released bacon-flavored Ritz crackers. While they are good in their own right, I too would have preferred there to be actual bacon in the cracker rather than just a bacon flavor. Luckily, I solved that this weekend by using Bacon Ritz as a base to a tasty, bacon-topped dish: Elvis crackers.
