I’m going to finish out week two of the ramen and funfetti challenge with something straight up weird. I’m acknowledging up front that this is weird, so let’s just get that out of the way right now. I know. I’m aware. You’re probably ready to click away to a more normal site right about now, but I’m going to ask you to stay and hear me out. Okay? Okay.
I’m turning ramen into a dessert.With chocolate. And just a hint of salt. You know I’m all about the salty and sweet, man. If you’re not a fan, just omit the salt altogether.
It’s crunchy, but I’m not sure what to compare it to. It’s not the same crunch that you get with a chip or a pretzel, but I really like it. You’ll probably make a chocolatey mess of your fingers when you’re eating it, but it’s totally worth it.
And you know what else you can add to give it some pizzazz (as if ramen turned into dessert wasn’t enough)?
S P R I N K L E S!
That’s right. I just combined a little bit of a ramen with a little bit of funfetti. I’m craaaaaaaazy, man. Crazy.
But you know who approves of the crazy and the sprinkles and the weird? This girl, right here:
She and I are going to go have some mommy/puppy time now – no sprinkles required!Print
