HUCKSTER Haystacks

Here’s Carville’s note written to raise money for the Obama “accountability fund:”

After Mitt tried to steal my line, you know I have to call him out. 

In Romney's speech bashing President Obama last night, he said, "It's still about the economy, and we're not stupid."

Yeah, it still is about the economy, stupid. It's about how hucksters like Mitt crashed it, the middle class paid the price, and the top 1% got more tax cuts. 

Let's call out these Republicans on their downright hypocrisy.


BTW, do you not LOVE the word HUCKSTER? Keep it coming, Carville!

HUCKSTER Haystacks
Makes 32 haystacks

It isn't necessary to use showy, devious, or aggressive methods to sell your product; sweet treats are the best motivator!

1 bag (11 oz.) caramel bits or 32 caramels, unwrapped
3 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. water
4 cups (8 oz.) chow mein noodles
1 c. honey roasted peanuts
4 oz. semi-sweet, milk or bittersweet chocolate

Microwave caramel bits, butter and water in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 to 3 min. or until caramel bits are melted, stirring every minute.

Stir in noodles and peanuts.

Drop scant quarter-cupfuls of mixture onto waxed paper-covered baking sheet.

Microwave chocolate in separate microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 to 2 min. or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring after 1 min.; stir until completely melted.  Drizzle "haystacks" with melted chocolate.

Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.

I prefer the caramel bits because you don’t have to spend time unwrapping caramels.
