Cozy Mystery Recipe Challenge Wk 2 Hannah's Chocolate Crack Recipe from Apple Turnover Murder by Joanne Fluke

I have to apologize for being late with last weeks cozy mystery recipe challenge. When I started this I wanted to see how many of these recipes could be made gluten free. Well this is what slowed me up because I had to find a store with gluten free graham crackers. I did find them at our local HyVee grocery store but didn't get them until yesterday. I made this recipe yesterday and here are the results for Hannah's Chocolate Crack recipe from Apple Turnover Murder by Joanne Fluke.

Apple Turnover Murder (Hannah Swensen, #13)

Review of Book:

I enjoyed this book. Hannah Swenson owns The Cookie Jar in Lake Eden Minnesota. She always seems to find time in between baking to find herself in the middle of a murder investigation. This time is no exception only at the fund raiser Hannah has told the victim of before he is killed. Now Hannah has to solve this mystery to keep her good name. This book starts a little slow but picks up and turns into a really good read. Hannah is a strong woman who seems to be able to handle what ever is thrown at her. She does some of her best thinking a nd mystery solving while baking. I think you won't be disappointed by reading this book or this series,. The recipes are really good also so that is another reason to pick this book up.

                                     Hannah's Chocolate Crack Recipe

This is a candy that is really easy to make and very good. It is a chocolaty, toffee crunch candy. The hardest part of this recipe is making the toffee and that is only because you have to continually stir it for five minutes. Good work out for the arms so that is a plus.

This is what it looks like after you pour the toffee on before you put it in the oven.

This is what it looks like after the chocolate is added.
All I can say is this is wonderfully addictive. It is very, very, sweet. I think it would be great after it is broken into pieces to put in cellophane and tie a ribbon around and add to a Christmas gift basket or just put in a contain for a Christmas gift from the kitchen. I will be making this over and over and giving as gifts.
You should definitely give this recipe a try. It is quick, easy and oh so good.
Until Next time
