Being a curatorial project and an alternative art space, we don’t have any money but we wanted to give all of our fans a special holiday treat. So here is a remarkable recipe that we invented just for you, Chocolate covered caramelized Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. It’s kind of like spicy Cracker Jacks dipped in dark chocolate. Divine! We hope you enjoy!
Chocolate Caramelized Flaming’ Hot Cheetos, A Holiday Treat from Slow
- 2 1/2 cups of sugar
- 1 stick of butter (NOT MARGARIN)
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- one bag of Hershey’s dark chocolate chips
- one bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos
Time: about 1 hour
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Add the sugar, butter, and cream of tartar to a sauce pan and cook over low heat. Stir continually for about 20 min. Add the baking soda once the mixture has become liquid and a nice caramel color. Poor over the Cheetos and mix. Separate the individual pieces and then bake for 10 min. Separate the pieces and then return to the oven, repeat until the caramel becomes crispy. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Place the caramelized Cheetos on a pice of wax paper and poor the melted chocolate over them. Let cool and enjoy with your favorite adult beverage or your favorite adult or just your favorite beverage!
If you’re too lazy to make your own, stop by the gallery (2153 West 21st Street, Chicago IL). We still have some left from the video shoot. Then you can also check out our current exhibition, HEAD, and pick up some John Henley and Theodore Horner drawings that make wonderful holiday gifts for everyone you love.
Happy holidays from Slow!
P.S. We would like to give a big shout out to Paul’s mommy, Amy Sedaris, Maangchi, and Cooking with Dog for being such great inspirations. Thank you!
