Carbo-loading, Vancouver Olympics-style

Tonight for the opening ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympics, we'll be honoring our friendly neighbors to the North... we'll be hunkered down in front of the TV, tooks on our heads, Canadian Club on ice, homemade maple kettlecorn in a bowl, golden ring Nanaimo bars in the oven. And a big box of Kleenex in reserve. Nothing quite gets the waterworks going for us like the Olympics.

You know, on ice.

Special thanks to The Kitchn for a wonderful recipe and reminder of one of our very favorite Canadian treats... that delightful combination of nutty cereally crust, creamy interior, and dark chocolate top.
