J is for Junk Food

          Today, everyone is on top of their health. But that does not matter when it comes down to junk food. There is that one thing that we all have that makes ditch our diets our diets. Junk food is everything from corn dogs to ice cream. People eat junk food for many reasons. It can bring people back to their childhoods or it may be a guilty pleasure. But no matter what the reason is, we all like at least one junk food item. My favorite junk food are french fries. Even though they are so simple, french fries are one of my favorite foods. They are perfect in their golden brown in crispy ways. Yum!!

          If you are feeling like making a super candy junk food try chocolate covered Swedish Fish. Here is the recipe and the back story.  Enjoy!! My teacher loves Swedish Fish. So one day in class we were talking and she said her two favorite things are Swedish Fish and chocolate. I then had an idea! So one night I created chocolate covered Swedish Fish. I brought them in to her and she really liked them. I have made them a few times now and they are surprisingly very tasty. The almost taste like a gummy-chocolate covered strawberry. They are very simple to make, too. The best way to make them is by using the medium sized fish; I found that they hold the perfect ratio of chocolate on them. Melt a good amount of semi-sweet chocolate and have a baking sheet ready lined with wax paper. By trial and error I have figured out the perfect way to efficiently dip the chocolates. The fastest way to do this is to grab the gummy fish by the tail and drag it in the chocolate first belly-side down then flip and cover the back. These lay out very well on a baking sheet and are very easy to store once they set and are cooled. But you must keep them in the refrigerator because the chocolate will melt right off and it will be one big mess. But besides that, these are perfect and keep for a  long time. What is your favorite junk food and why??




P.S.- This is Farawayeyes- she asked for a picture of the habenero sauce that I featured a couple of days ago. It would be with be in an isle near the barbecue sauces. This is what it looks like...

    1. I actually would have never guessed the gummy fish combo if it was not for my teacher, it is kind of an obscure pairing.

  2. Thanks Faith. I'm gonna look for that sauce.

    Ice cream is definitely my guilty pleasure. I do love Swedish Fish. But dipped in chocolate. I don't think so.

    1. I actually meant to put a pic of the sauce on my original post, but I wrote it on my phone and it would not let me do it. My mom's favorite food is ice cream, too. The dipped fish are if your really like them, like my teacher does.

  3. The one junk food I always dream of when I'm on diet is Pizza. That hot stringy cheese always makes me drool.

    Enjoy the rest of the A to Z Challenge.
